Default Brake fluid leak at cover

I installed SS brake lines on my 06 and while I was doing that I bought a black master cylinder cover that states CBR. It looks cool and I got it cheap on ebay but anyway I only taken the bike out a few times since then I notice that I get a very small leak on the one side of the cover and and alttle around both bolt holes for the cover. Its a very very small leak but still I dont like it. The bike stops on a dime so no air is getting in and i got that damn cover on as tight as I can make it. What could be the cause of this? Could it be the cover? Too much fluid? Any input would be very much apreciated. I want to say its the cover but when I hold the new one side by side with the stock one they look the same. Thanks

It the diaphram sealed all the way around and clean on both mating surfaces. Might just be dirt...

Well problem solved - I went to take the cover off to check for proper fitment or dirt but ended up stripping one of the screw that hold the cover on. Then I snapped an easy out into it lol so I said **** it and grabed the cover and snapped it off then used pliers to get the screw out. Put stock cover back on, bought new screws and good as new lol what a pain in the ***. I wouldnt suggest buying any ebay brake fluid covers
