remove the oil pump!....why even worry about the lines at all...so u have to spend more time mixing fuel, big deal... no other 2-stroke machine i have mixes the oil and gas for me, why would i want the machine thats the biggest and most expensive to be the one with the oil pump?

I was premix up until last weekend. I got tired of the smoke at idle, as I have to do a lot of no wake zones. Plus all the family members that ride my skis may not have figured out how to get gas/oil ratio right when they gas my skis.
When I reinstalled the oil pump I put on Oetiker (sp?) clamps to secure the lines. They are supposed to be less likely to fail.
Carl at island sent a small kit of different sized clamps for $16. They were easy to install and look to be easy to remove for carb work.
I will likely add a touch of oil to gas for peace of mind, after reading about all the engines going up in smoke due to no lube.
my 2 cents

I like to be able to fill up on the river for those long rides and it is easier to fill up with out mixing.

Two GPR's one with one without. I put new lines on and secured them well and have checked them every time I launch no issues and less hassle I would keep the pump.

I have been back and forth on 2 of my ski's. I say if it's a variable pump, witch in this case it is, keep it, but replace the lines.

Put 60 hours on a mild triple gpr1200 with oil injection, no problems.
The gpr oil pump system is bulletproof with a little simple maintenance.
IMHO The biggest reason for 'oil or pump related failure' is when people remove and replace the carb rack for jetting or whatever and just pull off the oil lines and then push them right back on. Then wonder why their oil line popped off and they toasted an engine
imo you really should cut the oil line ends off so as to get a new fresh not stretched out end to securely slide on the carbs oil inlet nipple.
When the lines are not long enough, do not put tension on the oil lines, replace them.
When lines get hard and brittle... replace them.
Not a bad idea to check the check valves also.
If the oil tank feed line, or the oil tank gets contaminated, then a little piece of smegma or dirt can keep the valve from closing, then all the oil drains back to the pump causing a dry start till the oil line fills back up... bad news
