The rings last a long time and mine have never leaked a drop. Not yet anyway...

If yours are in nice condition, hang on to em. I initially bought mine because my bike is loaded with 80's after-market accessories but the looks have kinda grown on me as time has passed.

Now... Don't drop your bike!
I believe that Chris' idea about the better cooling was that since there was no huge gasket, the heat could transfer through the valve cover more completely.
He would know..............................
