How effective are the polymer head gasket sealants?

I suspect my V may have a little leak in the front cylinder head gasket. At start up the bike has white vapor coming from that exhaust. I goes away after warm up. Also, more significant, is a slow loss of coolant.
The bike got hot once due to the cooling fans being un-plugged and it has seen extreme cold during winter months in northern Montana.
I have been reading about the head gasket /cooling system fixes using polymer additives and was wondering if anyone had ever used on a V or other motorcycles. Any thoughts?
