Transporting Upright Rubicon?

New guy here with a quick question.

I have an '01 Honda Rubicon. We need to get two ATVs in the back end of my enclosed trailer and about the only way to make them fit is to stand the two of them side by side on their tail end. The other ATV is my buddies Yamaha (I think).

Anybody see any issues with this? Not concerned with the ability to tie them down, more concerned about what might happen to the fluids in the machines.

Holy crap. Not only does it sound like a bad idea from the stand point of all the fluids, it just sounds like a bad idea, period, even if it wouldn't cause any problems with the engines.

Being the pragmatic chap that I am, I wouldn't do it if it were me in your shoes.
Just want to make sure that when we get out to KOH that I don't have an oily mess that won't run.:icon_cussing:
If you're going to go through with it, run a test. Stand your bike up, leave it over night, and see what kind of mess you have in the morning. If it runs, or doesn't run, at least you'll know before you get where you're going and find out too late.
