k1200rs oil leak

Yesterday I found my motorcycle broken by the wind in the parking lot. It was parked on the central jack and I found it suspended on the rear wheel. Some of the oil went down, about 2 liters, both in the hull and on the floor.
Please help me tell you where the oil could drain, the oil bath is almost empty and most of the oil is in the hull, the oil pump broth was in place.
thank you

Suspended by the rear wheel? As in upside down????

If so oil would find its way into the throttle bodies via the crankcase vent. From the throttle bodies then into the airbox and out into the hull? Messy....time to pull the plastics/tank and look in the airbox if no other problems such as a cracked cover?
