Is oil "sweat" normal around gaskets if new?

Recommended Posts

Just had my entire motor rebuilt and took it through some heat cycles and its first break-in ride. Noticed a little bit of oil sweat around the right engine cover (not the clutch cover). Is this to be expected with the first ride or two as the gaskets / engine expand and cool and seat?

don't worry about it. It would be a good idea to retorque the head bolts and what not but give it a bath and get everything dry and oil less and check again for "sweat". You should be all set imo
