The o-ring itself is enough, if it was leaking like mine was it is likely because it was not tightened evenly in a criss cross pattern...also a VERY light smear of oil on the o-ring will help also so it doesn't snag or pull up during install.

Do you need to replace the O-ring or just use same one?

Many times you can get away with re-using the old one, depending on its condition. Try it. If it leaks, get a new one.

I don't need to replace, just changed the clutch cover from OEM to clear by Ducabike. That's why I am asking.

I reused the same o-ring three times, no problems at all.
1st: make sure everything is perfectly clean before reassembling the clutch cover
2nd: put some engine oil on the o-ring before installing
3rd: be very careful when putting the cover onto the engine: o-ring must be aligned in the cover's notch.
4th: personal trick - I alway check the surfaces with an Arkansas Stone to make sure perfect fittment/leak tightness.
