I have this problem when I do tall wheelies. Still unsolved in my case. I wonder if it's a big bore issue. Very few of my stock bore friends have this issue. However I only have a 434 where you have the 470.

If you simply want to keep oil out of the airbox, you can cap off the airboot port with a 3/8" ID vacuum line cap. You can go to O'Rilleys and get some fuel line hose to elongate hose 16 (the one that would go to the airboot) and either route it to the ground or put it up high with a breather (Uni Filter UP122). Currently I am doing this. It has not solved my oil separation problem during wheelies, but at least it routes it away from the airbox.
