    Low Oil Warning - Running Premix....

    I took my GPR out today and as soon as I started it I got a low oil warning light/buzzer. THe ski was setup to run premix back in March, but the guy that did it just left it full of oil. I was thinking/hoping he would of emptied it and use the zip tie method to keep the float up. Anyway, it's been fine up until today. How in the world could I be losing oil? I did see some oil in the hull which I mentioned to the mechanic but he said it spilled during the premix conversion and it wasn't anything to worry about.

    Can I pull the sender unit without taking anything else apart? Any idea how I could be losing oil from the tank?

    Thanks guys!

    is that Warning light strictly for warning about low oil on the gp1200R?

    Just open the front hatch look at the sending unit follow the wires to where you can reach them ( will be the blue and white wires) cut them strip the ends and connect them together, stick a wire nut and some black tape and good to go. As for the oil use a siphon pump to pump out any oil left in tank... Good luck

    You have two warning lights one for low fuel and a blinking oil can for low oil...

    Easiest way is to pop the sending unit out the top of oil reservoir and zip tie the floats in the highest position possible. And that way you can always go back to oil injection if wanted.

    All fixed thanks. I was being way to gentle with It. I was walking past it in the garage and had one of those "I'm tired of this shit" thoughts. Yanked on it pretty good and got it all apart, a couple of zip ties and I'm good to go. I considered cutting the wires but since I had to pull it to do that anyway I figured I'd just zip tie it. Thanks!
