This is a fairly common problem. My 07 bonny (31k) developed a bit of a seep a while back. I did my second valve clearance check this weekend and applied some clear RTV to the gasket when I put the cover back on. I put on a very thin bead and then smeared that flat to remove any excess. So it was a very thin sheen of liquid gasket. No seeping thus far and I ride pretty hard.
Unless the gasket has a crack or some other deficiency the liquid gasket should suffice. And if it doesn't just order a new gasket.
Veho ergo sum!! '07 Bonnie Black, D&D reverse cones, no AI, airbox removed, UNI Pods, 140 main, 42 pilot, down-turned m-bars, LSL rearsets, progressive springs.
