need help stopping oil leak.

Ok so the past couple month been running the Honda in high rpm's and yesterday riding crab river I noticed my right boot was shiny. Checked out to be oil, so I started checking out the bike and noticed oil was leaking from the woodcraft clutch cover. It wasn't leaking from the seal though, it was leaking from the bolt. I got home and went to tighten it but it was as tight as it would go. Any suggestions on how to stop the leak? I was gonna back out the three bolts and loctite them since I didn't originally but If the threads are covered in oil I don't thing it would do any good.

No, for the clutch side the woodcraft mounts on bottom of the oem cover. So I never broke the factory seal on that side, just removed the bottom 3 bolts and replaced them with the longer bolts supplied with the woodcraft cover.

removing the 3 bolts was probably enough to break the seal and cause the small leak. See the first post on 2nd page. use some hondabond

Yeah everything was fine until yesterday, no leak or wet spots, the leaks are coming from behind the bolts the gasket on the outside is not leaking.

Ok any other things to check before I pull the cover and reseal the clutch cover? I just changed the oil so I don't wanna drain the oil after a few hundred miles. I though everything was fine cause I thought it stopped leaking, but I rode to work today and noticed it only leaks under load. It doesn't leak when the engine is off or at an idle just when I'm getting on it, and its not a bad leak just a few splatter marks on my shoe.
