I would drop the leg, say 1/4 inch and sqeeze a thin bead of non hardening auomotive gasket goo in and retighten Loktite makes a suitable product called liquid gasket I think.

Yeah. One of the few apps I'd use Blue Hylomar for.

Just an afterthought. When you drop the leg a bit make sure there is no upward/downward surface bruising that will prevent it seating properly. If so then run a fine file over to dress them down. All surfaces need to be flat to get a good seal. Hylomar is a good product. I suspect that Nos is experienced with fitting motorbike engine covers.

Yep, and I won't use blue hylomar for it...awful stuff. Bits get in the oil. I use red for that-or Stag Well-Seal on bad cases.

I know what you mean about bits. Always used a sheet of thin brown paper. tapped out a gasket and used grease.

....or if you're feeling rich, Halfords do (did?) "proper" gasket paper.
