Oil is spewing out of the hole above where the exhaust header bolts onto the head. What's going on? It's making a stinky mess landing on the hot header and my right side radiator. It's a '04 wr450. Also never noticed before but hot gas is blowing out the hole as well? Any ideas?

OK, it's the decomp plug blown out I guess. The bike still has lot's of oil in it. Could anything else of got damaged in the engine?

Also is there a quick temp. fix so I can ride tomorrow?
