There's a breather at the back of the engine that runs to the airbox. If you recently spent a lot of time at high rpms, then that could do it. Or if you overfilled the oil, I know it sounds dumb, but I still have to mention it. Otherwise something is worn or plugged and causing too much pressure in the engine and blowing the oil out.

thanks for your help but i think i figured it out. i rolled it friday and i think that is probably what caused it. I have read that if you roll them that oil can run into your carb.

Yep, that would do it too.
