    GP800 oil block off installation question

    Dropping back in my motor in my '98 GP800 and have a couple of dumb questions:

    1. Oil block off kit, I plan on going premix and took off the whole oil pump and installed the block off plate. I've read on a couple of other skis, oil is still required into the crank case, but I don't see such a nipple for the GP800. It looks like I could totally remove the whole oil tank and all of the lines if I wanted to since it doesn't feed into anything else, is that correct? If so, how do I prevent the low oil sensor from going off and warning me that oil is low?

    2. Putting the fuel lines back to the carb, I remember seeing that the nipple closest to the motor is the fuel inlet and the one on top is the return, is that correct? Don't want to mix up my inlet/return lines.

    I left the tank, pulled the sensor from the top of the tank, double tie-wrapped the float in the up position, and reinstalled. My empty oil tank is now always "full". You could always get rid of the tank and tie wrap the sensor itself somewhere if you wanted. Look at the floats and you'll figure it out easily.

    Don't forget to plug the two oil inlets.

    Cool... I have had some intimate experiences w/ the fuel sender, so I'm assuming the floats are the same, I'll figure that out, great idea!

    So the case has no other special oil inlets anywhere, right?

    Take the sensor out & join the 2 wires together.

    There is no oil in the cases on a Yamaha.

    These should help

    Edit: I don't have any pics but a N/S case fits perfect on the oil tank nipple. Just slip it on and zip tie it on
