2003 R6 minor oil coming out of the exhaust

how's it going MH

I recently did a swap on my 2003 R6 and after installing the engine i noticed white smoke coming out of the exhaust after about 5 minutes it decreased and when away but when i rev it at high RPM's it will smoke a little

So after letting it run for 5 minutes i shut if off and started to look for any issues,i noticed the previous owner had over filled it with oil ,so i drained some oil out and set it just at the full indicator,i also saw that where the pipe connects to the muffler there was a slight like one drop oil from there,should it be fine to run it now that it's at the normal oil indication till any excess oil in the exaust burn off or is there any other steps to do prior to running it for a bike(the smoke was kinda white but went away unless i rev it at high RPM's thanks! any help will be great!
