Is it safe to use carb vent / fuel lines as the oil line? Both the oil and vent lines are 1/8th in size. Its on a 1994 Polaris XLT 580. Only thing Ive noticed is the original oil lines are slightly thicker clear (now yellow, hard, tarnished) lines than the new clear fuel line I bought today to replace it. They do not go to carbs but are plugged into the engine block itself.

I wouldn't use that thin stuff that is used on vent lines for oil lines. Ask local dealer for new oil line and that's what they gave me and a smooth bend became a kink which shut off oil to that cylinder, Cost me an engine.
