    No. The oil is injected into the crankcase. The fuel, via the injectors, is injected directly into the combustion chamber. So, if you premix and disable the oil injection, the lower end will receive no lubrication.

    Besides, there is no good reason to do so. The oil injection system has a proven reliable history, consumes less oil, the engines performs better, far less emissions, etc.

    Old-school advice, often from non-Polaris watercraft owners.

    Old Kawawaki and Yamaha oil pumps (IIRC) did have a poor reputation.

    Polaris oil pumps, not the same.

    Maintain the oil hoses, clamps, and install a new OEM oil filter.
