Question from a noob

Hey everyone!

I'll start by confessing that I'm a Husa-noob, so this might be a stupid question, but I haven't been able to find an answer yet.

I just picked the bike up a few days ago, cleaned it up, changed the oil, and started it up to get an idea of what engine seals I'll need to replace. Looks like I need a valve cover gasket and a seal for my oil drain plug.

When it was running, I noticed this rusty coloured liquid running out of the hole in the right side of the engine. It's easy to wipe off, and isn't oily. Any idea if this is normal, or what it could be?

Thanks!
