Not very much, they are sealed by rubberized gaskets I believe nowadays. I'd just snug the fasteners without too much force so you won't strip out the threads.

What are the torque specs for the derby bolts on hd fxst

84 - 108 in/lbs. Do NOT use loktite and do not overtighten otherwise you will have dificulty in removing these later on. These are not structural bolts, simply cover bolts. For those without a torque wrench, a 'snug' fit will suffice.

My 2012 883 superlow 5 speed gearbox is leaking around gasket, is gasket bad or something else

Over filled with with transmission oil or "O" ring in cover is out of position. If it was just seeping a little after the transmission oil change it could be residual oil from the derby cover. There is a specific torque to those screws on the derby cover. Also very easy to over fill the transmission by not draining long enough and/or when oil is not warm. If you aren't talking about the derby cover as the point of leakage please repost the question. If the gasket to the derby cover is broken or nicked the part number is 25463-94A. The torque for the derby cover screws is 90-120 inch pounds. Inch pounds, not foot pounds that we usually associate touque with.
