    '95 Yamaha V-Max 175, is it feasible to remove the whole oil mix contraption and go back to the old fashioned way of premixing gas/oil?

    I have never done that on a Yamaha, but I have on many others. Since there are a number of sensors and safety controls involved, you may want to post this question over on They have been a great help to me for a long time. By the way I have found the Yamaha oil injection system to be reliable.

    On my 225 HP Evinrude I ran a little extra oil (premixed at 100:1) for about a year before I switched to pre-mix only.

    Best regards,
