valve cover gasket replacement

Got a 20hp OHV twin cyl Kawasaki liquid cooled engine. I've got a valve cover oil leak.

Is putting new valve cover gaskets in fairly simple to do?

Quite simple...Typically, four screws and the cover is off. Remove the old gasket, scraping any material left behind, if needed, and install a new gasket and torque the screws upon reassembly. As for the parts needed, if you have a Kawasaki dealer in your area, check with them. If not, check with a local dealer of the brand unit you have.

Thanks. I knew that it is a very simple task on many engines, but I just wasn't sure about this particular one. Haven't worked on one of these previously, and just got this one.

In most cases you will need to contact the equipment manufacturer/dealer for parts or service. Nearly all Kawasaki engines used for power equipment are OEM specific.
Here is a site that may be helpful, it has a dealer locator as well.
