I just put a working mfd in my 97 sl 1050 everything works but the light is flashing and it says there is no oil in it but the tank is full. I converted the ski to premix but like i said the tank is full is this gonna hurt anything or put the ski in limp mode and what should i do to fix it.

I know on my '96 SL 780... that low oil or low fuel will limit RPMs... quasi limp mode... so I'm pretty sure yours would do the same.
Did you disconnect the oil sensor wires somewhere? On mine... I pulled the oil tank float gauge and wired the float up so it always reads full (I premix) and it works fine... but of course... I kept all the wires connected for the sensor.

Why keep a full tank of oil if you're premixing? Get rid of the tank and pull the sensor out and ziptie the float all the way up and tuck it out of the way somewhere.

Not sure about OP's SL 1050... but on my '96 SL 780... the fuel/water separator "jar" was attached to my oil tank. So I left my oil tank in place... didn't want to try and make a new mount for the separator. I did, however, empty my tank and wire the float to "full".
If OP did have a full tank of oil... not sure why his display is indicating "low oil" unless one of the wires came loose/disconnected or something.
