    Smile Oil pump failure worries

    Hello all,
    I have been riding a 94 MRD Fuel Injected blaster until last year. I sold it, and bought a 2002FX140, bad choice, too bulky etc. Anyways I recently sold it and got an 04 GP1300R + 04 FXHO for my wife. I have not had either in the water yet.
    I am hoping that the GP will be what I expect!!! My main concern is the oil pump failing, one of the skiis I looked at had this happen, and the results are not good.
    So, in addition to that, I am wondering the difference between performance kits: RIVA & R&D. I have no clue what the difference will be on performance from my previous ski (blaster), but pretty sure it will be better that the FX140. My main riding habits are turns & power slides. Thank You in advance for all your help!!!

    Ride more, worry less.

    More oil pumps fail on the internet forums than in real life. It must be magic.

    I'm not so sure that the oil pump fail. It seems that most problems are due to the oil lines falling off or breaking if they are old and brittle. If you check that the lines are good and can't be pulled off easily, you are probably ok. I put new lines and used pinch clamps on my old 2-stroke skis and I'm sure those lines are not going to come off!
