Does this require a teardown of the cam chain housing, or can the o-ring and gasket be replaced without all that work?
Unfortunately, yes. Make sure you cover all other possible options before jumping in.

Removal of back engine tin, and muffler required to get to the cam chain cover. Once inside cam housing, removal of the tensioner, idler arm/sprocket and cam sprocket needed. The cam plate (with the o-ring and gasket) is behind the cam sprocket. Retiming of the cam is required. Use LOTS of Curil-T as you don't want to do this again.
