Question about 2004 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
Rear rocker box is leaking with new gaskets
It's possible one of the gaskets got pinched, or one of the cover pieces is warped. Either way, it's gonna have to come apart again to fix it.

SOURCE: replace rear rocker box gasket
Replacing the silicone gaskets between the rocker box cover is not that difficult. Simply take the bolts out and lift the cover off, replace the gasket, put the cover back on with the bolts loose and line them up correctly. Then tighten the bolts to about 80 - 100 inch pounds of torque.
If the leak is coming from below the lower rocker plate where it mates with the head, this is a bit more difficult and I'd suggest taking the bike to a repair shop. However, if you'ver mechanically inclined and have the tools, even that is a job that can be done by an amateur mechanic. If this is the case, please ro-post and I'll tell you step by step what you need to do to replace the gaskets beneath the lower rocker plate.
