R6 left engine cover install

I'm going to be replacing the left side engine cover on my R6. Is there any trick to it? The Yamaha parts CD does not indicate that there is a gasket to go with the cover. Should I use some silicone and some other gasket sealant? Does the manual call for torque specs? I'm surprised that there is no gasket as I'm sure there is oil beind the cover. Do I need to drain the oil? Thanks guys!

I am not sure about a gasket for the altenator/stater cover. I would think there would be but who knows.

There is definatley going to be a torque setting for the bolts. The part is made of aluminum and will require settings.
