    Oil injection system tends to be reliable, if it is maintained.

    Replace aged hoses, make sure the hose clamps are in position and properly holding. New OEM oil filter. Use good quality oil.

    System uses about half the oil rate compared to pre-mix. Less smoke, less cost, engine runs just fine.

    What hose clamps are on the oil hoses right now?

    I, personally, am not a fan of using nylon zip ties on fuel or oil hoses. Some others are OK with zip ties, but I prefer a spring loaded or ear type of clamp that will not loosen with heat, vibration, and aging.

    if you are keeping the oil injection put real clamps on all engine critical hoses, especially oil ones. They can be had at auto part stores for a few bucks.

    I prefer to take the injection off and not have to worry about it, but that's just me. A lot depends on how/where you ride. If you are going on long rides that may require you to refuel at a dock or otherwise, where there is only fuel, injection makes sense. But in my case, I almost always have access to a gas can of pre-mix.

    Oil block offs are easy to do, just cap the old lines, remove the pump, and install the block off plate. Like wise, the oil injection lines are easy to replace as well.

    Personally I am not a fan of the non-reinforced, non-marine grade, clear fuel hose.

    I prefer reinforced fuel hose, which is typically a solid color or black rubber.

    The safest fuel hose would be genuine marine grade fuel hose.

    If not that, then at least automotive grade reinforced fuel hose. Does not need to be high reassure 'fuel injection' hose, just good quality fuel hose.

    There are other guys on here who buy and happily use the clear stuff, just not my thing.

    I used the clear lines, and then replaced them after a season on one of my skis. I didn't think the stock clamps got a good even grip on the hose, as its diameter is quite a bit reduced compared to that of black rubber hose. In fact, I found a leak on one of my skis at the fuel water separator that was easily fixed by replacing the clear with the black rubber......

    ya I was worried about that, I didn't like the way even tygon line fits with clamps,

    maybe just use the oil line with the clear that I already bought , lol , and get new fuel line ?
