You shouldn't have any oil seepage (or any other for that matter) around the base gasket. I suppose it is possible that the gasket material you used got stained by some mud or water during the ride.
I would use an actual gasket for the base and ensure that your cases are completely clean and flat where the jug mates up. You shouldn't need any gasket sealer or anything else to get everything sealed up properly.
Clean, flat mating surfaces, and properly torqued fasteners have all I have ever needed to get a proper seal.

The cylinder studs will have to be removed first...

Yes,chuck up the cylinder with internal clamps on the head end.Spin it and cut down the base.
You mean chucking the cylinder itself? The studs stay in the lower cases. I've been getting in tight with the guy that owns the local Honda/Yamaha shop.He might be able to do such a job. Thanks
Have done this numerious times...
You can have some fun and cut it down the thickness on one head gasket,then run two head gaskets,that will get ya some more low end power (along with the boysen port mod) But that's a whole different subject...
