oil coming out

hi. after my last ride i noticed a large amount of oil was coming out from the side of my engine. all of it was coming from the two big screws shown in the picture. i was suprised i lost close to a litter of oil when i checked the oil level. my question is what is the best way to fix this. would a sealant fix the problem? thanks

i hope you didnt use the stongest thread lock on them...otherwise i would say that was a pretty big mistake....

a while ago back in 09 there was a recall for those timing caps for them to be tightened....

BOOM!!! SHAKE AND BAKE
