That's how I do it... it's worked well the 4 or 5 times I've pulled off the cover. Initially I'd remove the cover by unscrewing the gas cap and then popping it out of the tank cover once it's off... but I don't like how that could drop crap into the tank so now I leave the gas cap screwed down if possible. Reinstalling the cap is a LOT easier when you do it first then mount the cover - the only trick is figuring out how to manage the gasket (gasket onto cap then cover down or gasket onto cover then gasket and cover down).
