There's sometimes water droplets on cold startup along with a brief smell of damp exhaust. The donut gasket and springs are OEM new and the mating surfaces were cleaned up (seem smooth, perhaps not enough) after I removed the rotten old gasket. Is this a problem?

Was wondering if the water situation isn't helped by the 1" rear raise on King Springs ...

kiwisix,

If there is no exhaust leakage (black soot) or excessive noise, then I wouldn't worry about it. After all, water vapour is a a result of combustion and very normal.
