Hey guys I have a older Suzuki ds80 it’s a 1989 and I noticed it had a tank for the oil injection with some oil still in it, I would prefer to used mixed gas as if this injection fails I will seize my engine.. although if I let the tank run dry with I burn out the oil injection pump? Or do I have to disactivate it some how? any help would be awesome thanks!!

Mechanically inclined just new to dirt bikes!

Some older models used to have to split the cases to remove a plate or slinger and drill some oil holes. Just put oil in it. Injection failures are old wives tales. I never saw one and got my first bike in 1972. I think Yamahas could be done just by removing the cable to the pump. It was done when enduros were stripped down to race MX.


The older I get, the faster I was.

I had a 1976 Yamaha DT250 that had oil injection. I just unplugged it and ran premix. That bike went through things no bike should and it kept on ticking.
