Hi all. The MT I have bought has been running premix I guess as there is no oil tank fitted. I do have an oil tank that could be fitted.

Are there any benefits of running the bike on pre mix rather than pumped oil?

thanks. Harri

If the bike's been run with no oil tank you'll surely need a new pump, so I'd just remove the pump before it does something awful and run the bike on premix. The Honda injection system just spritzes oil into the intake so it's basically the same as premix anyway, except it often supplies way too much oil which you have little control over.

Thanks Ray, that makes perfectly good sense to me. I'll run premix once I give the bike a good looking over and try and get it started. Battery has been ordered so I will connect that up and take it on from there.
