Standing it up on its rack?

I have saw all this done before in the magazine articles, and i think i have read it somewhere were someone tried to stand up there quad on the rack but it wouldnt because of a six-pack rack that was on it. my question is does this hurt the quad? would it hurt to stand 2 up on the rack in the bed of a pickup (securely strapped down of course) to haul them around without using a trailer? i just dont want to hurt my quads. thanks.

I always stand my Banshee up for storage. I simply drain the carbs and the fuel tank first. It wont hurt it.

My girls Warrior has an AC 6 pack on it, and hers wont stand up because of it.

Ironic, i always used to wonder how people with extended swingarms got their bikes to stand up....just get a 6 rack.

Re: Standing it up on its rack?

Not draining the carb and tank will cause fuel to pour out of them when you stand your bike up. Not the best thing to do, I would also like to mention that on some bikes oil may come out of the breather hose. Otherwise, it should be fine to stand your bikes up in your truck or trailor, I occasionally stand my bike up to acess the bottom for doing work on it.
