My buddy put too much oil in his Raptor once and said the same thing was happening to him. I believe our quads take 1.9 quarts but I’m sure someone a lot smarter than me will chime in on this for you.

im not sure what the go is between quarts and litres, but i know mine used 1.8 litres, and i got a feeling (havnt read the manual in a while) you supposed to let the bike sit for 5 min after runnig before you check the oil level

Check your oil as per the manual.
Your most likely over filled and need to read the manual for the proper way to check your level. Remember this is a dry sump system.

There is a certain way to check your oil as well. You're supposed to warm the machine up for 5 minutes and let it sit for 2 minutes. After the two minutes you check the oil by simply dipping the stick, do not screw it in to check the oil. All of this can be found in the owners manual.

Sounds like there is way too much oil in there. Do you know how much you put in there?
