It's a good idea, but..........

If you used silicon or such on the gasket, I'd leave it. The bike only has 12k on the clock and you found the reason for the oil starvation. You didn't note excessive metal, which would have trashed the oil pump. Gummy worms won't. If you just used the OEM gasket, then it wouldn't be a bad idea, but not really necessary. Personally, I'd run it.
