oil, as well as all other fluids, will drain to the back of the motor if your "new oil level" is above a overfill valve or any path of escape you may dump your oil. and if you do not realize it you will be an accomplise in xx homicide. plus you may just get oil in places you dont want it.

I know Wayne Matlock will haul his parts quads this way from time to time during a race. You need to block off the breather line, or else oil will drain out of it, alot of oil. I think Wayne just uses some type of clamp to pinch the rubber line. Other then that, I don't think he has had a problem.

I stored by buddy's machine in my garage. I noticed a huge oil spot on the floor, we think it was the crank case breather leaking. when we changed the oil the next day not much came out. I won't be storing his or my machine on end ever again.

Same here, my thoughts exactly. Maybe my oil was too sludged up to drain out the line...

i hope it will be ok because that is the only way i can fit it in my toy hauler with our rhino and i am veryyyy sick of driving our rhino. so what breather needs to be blocked the crank case or the one that goes into the air box. one other question what makes the 700xx differant from the other sport quads cause my z400 had no issues hauling this way

You'll lose abit of oil , comes through the breathers on the head and tranny. Depends how long. Over night it is quite a big puddle!

Did you ever figure out what breather needed blocked? I need to haul mine like this for a trip soon.
