"Dean, most probably a bad powerhead base gasket or exhaust cover gasket.

If you run it with a little extra oil in the mix and the cover off, you should be able to spot where it's coming from (by all the blue smoke)

If from the side of the motor, replace the exhaust cover gasket - from under the motor, you have to remove the powerhead and get the new gasket that goes between the powerhead and the (leg) exhaust housing."
