Oil leaking from filler cap - Cinq Sporting

Following a recent rocker cover gasket replacement, I'm now starting to see oil emerge from the oil filler cap - is it just a case of replacing the cap, or is this indicative of excessive oil pressure in the system?

I dunno - you block off one escape route for oil and it just seems to find another...

There should be no oil pressure there at all.

Did you clean out the flame trap when you did the cam cover gasket?

Cheers
