I'm putting a different track on my wife's '17 900. New to 4 strokes. I want to tip sled on it's side to get the drive shaft and suspension in. Sled will proly sit back down for a few days before I start it. Is this ok? I know it's a dry sump system just not sure about oil leaking or getting somewhere it's not supposed to be. Also, if sled gets stuck say at a 45 degree angle off the side of trail does it need to be shut down right away? Thanks.

I just had my GT 900 on its side for day. Was also changing oil so I drained the oil before rolling it. When I rolled it back I pulled drain plugs again let it sit over night to make sure got all oil out. Refilled and fired it up

Lay it on it's right side, exhaust side down.

It won't bother the sled at all to leave it tipped over for a couple days on its side... If you tip it over while it's running you do want to shut it off...

I had mine sitting on it's side for 2 months doing the track swap and suspension rebuild while waiting for parts and free time to get up to the garage to work on it....

Is that on a post through the riser or is it resting on that concrete ledge in the background?
