Appreciate y’all boy, got busy on the bike today and found out it’s my front valve cover leave and soaking the whole left side on the motor. I don’t get paid till next week but I have some gasket maker. You think if I pull the covers and add some silicone to the old gaskets that it’ll hold till payday?
If you plan to get new ones next week it makes no sense to go to the trouble to seal the ones you have and then do it all over again in a week or two.

Unless the leak is so heavy that it will leave the engine dry in a few miles or be a safety issue by leaking on the rear tire, I say keep a check on the oil level and ride. But order new gaskets and replace them as soon as you can.

Your call,,,
