Yamaha XLT1200 Oil Line ID and OD ?
Am I correct in that most people are using 1/8"ID and 1/4"OD for the oil injection lines as well as 1/4"ID and 3/8"OD for the line from tank to pump?

A lot of people replace the old oil lines with new ones. if the old lines are still flexible and not cracking you can still use them and actually i prefer to use the stock lines but i check them out pretty good and cut the zip ties and preposition them. i also clip the end were they were on the carb. and re-install them. the reason for that is the old lines are already shrunk and are a little stiffer and fit a little tighter when installed. if the lines are too stiff to the point of breaking they should be replaced. Good luck with the newly purchased ski and don't forget to install the power valve pin retaining clips (wave eater clips) they are just as important as the oil lines.

Thanks. The lines seem to be in good, flexible condition but I am a stickler for anything that is a cheap, preventative measure for expensive repairs. I can buy the Tygon locally for $15 so it was more peace of mind than anything. Wave Eater PV Clips are on the way today.
