Okay so 2 days ago I sunk my four wheeler in water and flooded it out, So I changed the oils and everything and now I think all the water is gone. But,when I go riding and my engine gets hot oil starts coming out of somewhere? It sprays oil all over the front of my engine and the exhaust, the oil just gets on the right side of my four wheeler. Does anybody have any idea where this could be coming from??

It might be leaking from the valve/head cover gasket area, from the head cover where the decompressor shaft comes through the head cover, or maybe around where the timing chain tensioner bolts on.

The easiest way to find a leak is to get some engine degreaser and clean all the oil off the engine. Then start it up and ride it, but stop and check for the oil leaking every minute or two. The idea is to catch the oil when it first starts to leak out, so you can see where it's coming from. If you don't catch it when it first starts to leak, everything will be oily and you can't tell where it's coming from.
