Hey all.

I'm new to this forum. Just wondering if anyone has had issues with a recon es getting oil in the airbox. I bought a new recon about a month ago for my 11 year old kid. He jumps it off a small jump on the property and has tipped it twice at low speed. I went to do the first oil change and found a decent amount f oil in the airbox?

Any thoughts?

Tipping it over could have caused this if it sat very long on it's side... I would clean it up and see if it continues. If under warranty get it checked out from the dealer after that. On an older ATV it could mean it piston is wearing out, but very unlikely on a new Honda.

Ok, so update. Fresh oil, air filter, spark plug, and a month of riding with no issues. Why they wold have the pcv valve dump into the airbox is beyond me but ok.
