Valve Cover Gasket

Well, I adjusted the valves on my GPz. The engine still runs so I guess that's good news. The valve cover gasket is now leaking however. I reused the old gasket and put silicone sealant on the upper edges of the gasket and the lower edges of the valve cover. Same for the spark plug shaft gaskets. Those are probably leaking as well though I haven't stripped it all down to take a look. I'm a little too frustrated to do that right now; I'm sick of working on the bike, I just want to ride. Anyway, how do I fix this? Should I get a new gasket(s)? Should I use silicone sealant at all? Any thoughts would be helpful.
