HI there I have a 2013 Suzuki Boulevard C90t only owner with 35.000 Miles and I recently notice a small leak coming from the Head Cover Gasket (the rubber that goes all around between the engine and the cover head),my question is should I try first use a "Permatex ultra black gasket maker" and place this all around outside the gasket and see if it stop the small leak. before do the second option that would be open the head cover and replace it with a new rubber cover ?:roll:

NO. "Duct tape" fixes never last.
And the liquid gasket won't stick good to an oily surface.

FIRST.....find the mounting screws or bolts that hold the cover on and be sure they are properly tight.

Then.....get it fixed right. It will only get worse if neglected.

Note: if it is a TINY leak, such that you never actually see any liquid oil but just the spot where it holds dust......you might not need to do anything.
