Heat Exchanger Blow Out

Hi, new to the forum. I bought a 2008 Daytona road bike with just 8000 miles and converted it into a track bike (race fairings, adjustable rear sets and levers) so nothing too major.

I’ve taken it around Cataluyna and on the second day the bike spat a mix of oil and water all over itself including the rear tyre. Luckily I saved the crash and managed to get it sat up. When I pulled over the engine was running fine and temperature was good but I shut it off immediately regardless and haven’t started it since. After some googling I believe it may be the heat exchanger as it’s still stock on there. There was roughly 1/2 pint of the oil/water mix in the belly pan. I’m taking the bike home to have a look at but for now I just have a few questions.

1. Could this be the heat exchanger and not the head gasket?
2. If it is the heat exchanger, where has the oil/water mix actually come out of? The heat exchanger itself or would it have been expelled from elsewhere ?

Thanks in advance!
