I just PC all the covers on my moto and just used new gaskets when re-assembling, no leaks or worries!

my bike is an 09vrscf with a little over 5k miles

the gaskets look real good i was just wondering how the pcoat would affect the seal around the gaskets i just thought the permatex might help some

I wouldn't use anything on the gaskets.They are reusable,but of course good sense has to be used in this decision.
Install the gasket and make sure it still has enough reveal to squash and make the seal when the covers are torqued in place.

I've had my covers off about 4 times now and have been using the original gaskets with no problems. Though, I will probably order new ones and have them on hand for the next time.

Also, as long as you have the alt cover off, if you have not checked your water pump drive shaft, if it were me, I'd check that -> http://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=108910
