I didn't know Barr's had a oil compound.  :nix:
Oil leak additives from my understanding swell the gaskets to stop oil leaks.
If that's good or bad, I can't say, never used it.
Might want to e-mail Barr's for their opinion and tell them what it will be used in.

Just saying.
You'll always be my best friend because you know to much.

I'd never use any kind of "stop leak" product.
Weep between cylinders on a VRod? Dig a little deeper, and you will prolly find it's a crankcase breather tube sealing issue, easily fixable.
Ignorance is bliss, and accuracy expensive. How much of either can you afford?
