    I'd try some type of sealant (maybe peratex non-hardening), but I'd also order a gasket now in just case.

    This is also a good solution to the Notorious NT carb leaking issue, sometimes with vibration those screws can back off a little. Placing a couple of over length bolts on and putting on some lock nuts helps keep it all nice and snug. Just be careful to not over-tighten as with everything there exists the possibility to strip the thread.
