Without looking it sounds like you are describing the cam chain tensioner.

The parta i'm talking about is offset maybe2" under the carb on the cylinder.. And there is a screw at the end.. I was wondering what is was because on my first ride the screw was missing and there was oil spitting out of there

Sounds like the timing chain tensioner.

It's the cam chain tensioner.  You need a very short M6x1.0 hex head bolt with a copper washer to match, about 10mm long. 

Thanks a lot ! very appreciate, it is exatly what you guys told me. cya arround
