oil in well

Was going to change the spark plugs on my brutale. After pulling off
the caps/covers, I noticed oil in the plug wells. Upon pulling the plugs,
I noticed that there was oil on the plugs. Could there be a leak in the cylinder head cover? Maybe one or more of the gaskets around the cylinder head assembly leaking?

Thanks Mitchy. I have ordered the gasket for the cover as well as the four for the wells. Hopefully that will will take care of the problem.

Thumbs up

do like Mitch said and also trim the sparkplug hole gaskets with a snap blade knife so the POS doesn't pull the plug socket off
