I haven't done it in N. But have hit the rev limited with the clutch pulled in, which is kinda the same thing. don't see how it would hurt it, aslong as your not holding it open for along time...

And keep it at full throttle even shifting just hit clutch and grab the next gear without letting off the gas

"Speed Shift" This is how my dad taught me on my first dirtbike. A KX 60, 2 stroke, 6-speed. Looked like a 50cc, but would keep up with 125's on the trails! :cool:

You need to find out first, if the oil is leaking from some where, (typically drain bolt on casing, or drain on oil tank) or if the engine is just using the oil. I'm hoping it's a leak if it's going down at that rate. If not, and it's just using that much oil, in that little amount of time, you may have more serious problems.

i see on many videos that people go WOT while in neutral, is that dangerous for the bike?
Make sure your motor is warmed up before any high revs. Loaded or not!
On a well worn cylinder wall it is possible to have ring failure due to a lip.
Probably never gonna happen on a quad as these don't last long enough to develop a ridge.

Something else to consider is how much faster you will hit that rev limiter when not under load.

ran the quad for about 2 mins, shut it down, took the dipstick out and wiped it clean, put it back in so that it rested on the coils and pulled it out
In addition to being on level ground, I'd say this is how you do it. So to answer your question, could there just have been more in the casing, than tank, I'd have to say it's just using that oil at a fast rate, or you have a leak. Unless, the first time you checked the oil, you did it a different way?
