Much like owning a boat an saying you never ran aground, it's not if ya will but when ya will.
@ Gulches ORV Park today I had the displeasure of having an insufficient angle of inclination going down a hill.
Ya. Laid it on the starboard side with the belly just beyond vertical.
Key off as soon as it touched.
Son climbed thru front, no windshield yet.
Dude on a CanAm Maverick ran up to assist - Thankx Bud!
Winched back to proper attitude within 5 minutes of laying over.
Still on steep decline & oil window was Full out of sight.
Waited 5-7 minutes before start attempt.
No joy.
Waited another 5 minutes.
Started up.
(and got thru this without a single pic getting shot, so... it never happened!)

Question to ya'll:
-Has there been any investigation on proper time to allow oil to settle back after laying over or full barrel rolls?

End of day back on level ground, the oil level was exactly where it was @ the start of the day.
No damage!

glad you and your son are ok.... as far as the machine goes: the damage will happen if the intake fills with oil through the breather. next time maybe pull off the intake boot where it connects to the throttle body and check for oil. if you find a bunch of oil there i would pull the spark plugs (and unplug the coils) and crank it over to make sure no massive amounts of oil are in the cylinders.

FJ & SW,

Gracias for the info.
Just checked airbox drain, nada!
Dodged that bullet this time.
Off to Uwarrie this weekend, see what Murphy has in store for me!
(hopefully not a trick...)
