Can anyone Identify this wire
Have an XPL2000 with oil tank removed...
can anyone help identify this wire...In the hull the throttle wire splits into 2 one for the throttle the other goes to the front of the engine ... I guess this is for the oil injection ???? does this cable pull some mechanism when it is on full throttle to let more oil????

Yes, that's exactly right. The oil pump has a little arm on it and when the throttle is applied it also pulls on that (oil injection pump) arm as well, allowing more oil flow.

the spring on the oil pump does not give tension on the throttle cable. the carbs are what put the tension on the throttle cable. the spring on the oil pump keeps tension on the oil pump cable. if it breaks, the oil pump defaults to max flow.

and make sure that spring doesn't RUST and break, my old GSXL broke and it either over rotated or something, and no oil got in the motor....BAMM went the PTO bearing on the connecting rod!
