    I have a older ('72) Yamaha based 80cc mainibike with oil injection that for
    many reasons is inop. Can I just cap off the inlet to the oil injector and
    run pre mix gas or do I need to fully remove it and cap off the hole. If I
    need to cap it off can you tell me why? (just curious) Thanks for any help

    Best to remove the pump and fashion a plate to block off the mounting
    point. Pumps need oil too, running the pump all the time with no oil
    going thru it will seize it up.
