    Replacement Oil Lines

    What does everybody like to use as replacement oil lines? Just stick with OEM or is there a less expensive better option?

    Regarding the OEM oil lines, the micro fiche only identifies lines before the check valves. I assume that this part comes with enough line to do the whole run from the pump to the carb?

    As an example, is #16 in the oil pump microfiche (part #90445-07007-00) the correct part for the entire oil line or just the piece that goes from pump to check valve?

    I always use the yellow TYGON from the local auto parts store. I think it's 3/32".

    #16 is just the piece from the pump to the check valve. I used OEM lines when I redid mine and I had to order 6 different lines (ie before and after the check valve for each cylinder). I'm probably the only one here who used OEM lines, most everyone else uses Tygon or other good quality aftermarket oil lines.

    Ok good to know. I'll probably just use tygon as well then. If those OEM parts are $15 a piece and I need 6 of them that's a lot of cash for hoses. Also, I can't for the life of me find the OEM oil line part number for the hose between the check valve and the carb.

    Each of the "6" lines on my ski have their own part number and I spent about $15 total for all 6. So yeah if your's are $15 a piece...that's too much.
