So does anyone know what went there? If no one knows I will probably just run over to Richardson Yamaha to see if they can help me. The service manual is all hand drawn and I can't find what that was anywhere so I think it was a simple plug.

Get one of these but be careful when you tighten the bolt that holds it in as it strips pretty easily.
Thanks, I actually just jumped over to the store and searched for "plug" and that was the first hit. You guys absolutely saved me the cost of buying the stock one and having it happen again. I'd say that this absouletly falls in the category of "it should have been a recall" and they provide you a replacement that looks/works like the aftermarket one! With all the engineering that went into this bike I can't believe that they left something like this with a cheap rubber plug. But all is good since I have it on order and I was doing an oil change anyway.
Thanks again for the assist!

My story is that I flipped the bike and kept running upside down, gas and oil were coming out everywhere. I knew oil had gotten on the radiator fins and was dripping into the pipe. After a while I thought it just would burn off. It never stopped. I took the radiator out to clean it good and when I was putting it back on I noticed the whole. Cranked it up and saw that something was coming out of there. Put my hand and it was getting oil.
