my kids rolled the commander over this weekend. didn't really hurt the machine, but after searching these forums people said to check the airbox for oil and sure enough there was oil in the airbox and filter. so here's my question. how does oil get up that air tube and into air box in the seconds the machine was upside down? i cleaned oil out and ordered a new filter so i guess i'm good to go? thanks, i appriciate any help.

The tube is connected to the top side of crankcase for venting crankcase pressure. For clean air standards, the blow-by is recycled and burnt again, thus the reason it ends in air box. When the machine is upside down, oil is free to run DOWN the tube into air-box.
