So, my oil looks like chocolate milk..

If it's likely that it's water in the oil, (and bearing in mind that it's only been rebuilt and used for about 5 hours I think the blue stuff might be the jointing compound from the crankcase join) I'm wondering where the water may have come from?
When I dropped the coolant, I might have imaged a few drops of oil in it, or i might not.. I have also succeeded in drowning the bike while out riding it through water high enough to cover the coil (though I managed to get it started afterwards)
Where else might water from the cooling system get into the oil? All gaskets were replaced (as part of a kit) when the engine was rebuilt, but I didn't do anything with the water pump...
