clean the bottom. I have seen a few pics of atv's hanging verticle from a tree. Figured this might be a good way to clean mud from the belly and hard to reach spots.

If you tip it way up or hang it, wouldn't that allow the oil to run into the air box threw the breather hose

I was thinking about the fluids also. Just curious to see if anybody does it.

Guys,

be carefull with your front bumber if you want to lift it up by
the winch!!!

I bought a Cycle Country plow and they send me a plate to put in front of the bumber for protecting it from the starp attch with manual lift.
This plate will help the bumber from being damage if you want to lift your
Foreman up like a candle!

My 2 cents.

I remember seeing my Honda dealer lift my Foreman up and rest it on the back rack to do my clutch update. Now I wonder if this is satisfactory maintenance?

When we're doing clutch work or just have the clutch cover off for some reason we work on them with the bike sitting on the rear rack .. And if it's not finished by 5:00 it stays up over night or over the weekend ..

Well, looks like it shouldn't be a problem.

it should be fine but if gas runs down your seat for a while your seat will get hard and will crack.

Yes that's true .. We pull the breather hose out of the handle bar hole double the hose over and push it back in the hole about 1/2 inch ..This pinches the breather off .. And shut off the petcock..
