    Disconnect oil pump

    Hey guys,


    So i have a 95 polaris sport, that i just got running but I ran into a big problem. The oil pump doesnt seem to be working and the engine seized up on me. Obviously this is horrible but it couldve been worse because i was able to get it to turn again right after it died with a little oil in the cylinders. Although it did get HOT.

    I know people have disconnected the oil pumps before and premix the gas and oil, but i wanted to get some input before i did that. Im guessing the only difference here would be the convenience of not having to premix. Is it worth pulling off and looking at/replacing? I did have a look at the bolts holding it on it seemed like it was going to be a little tough getting off.


    Thanks in advance!

    Ok, so I looked into this a bit more. Didn't realize the pump ran based on RPM as well as throttle position, so I guess that is another advantage to the pump.

    Is there any common problems that arise with oil injection? Any input on this would be nice. I'm all for replacing or fixing the pump, if it's not too expensive and going to be worth it for the machine. But if premixing is going to be just as good, I'd rather save myself the trouble.

    Pre mixing in a pain in the a**.
    Better to fix the pump. Premix means you'd have to carry oil and a ratio rite if you ever fueled up on the trail. And like you mentioned you'd lose the variable ratio, so you'd get a lot of smoke at low rpm and foul plugs easier.
    I had a jet ski I had to premix for about a month, never again!

    Replace the oil pump, it's a cheap part.. Check ebay and craigslist.

    After replacing the oil pump, pre-mix the gas until you see no more bubbles in the oil lines.
