I got my Wave Raider a month ago and I decided to go pre-mix because the ski has high hours (177) and I don't want to be rebuilding the engine because of oil pump failure.

However I just started realizing how much easier it is NOT to premix.

Anyhow - here is the question - should I go to pre-mix or buy a new oil pump. I am of the lazy type, so I might want to buy the oil pump.

A friend told me that "heavy duty", long lasting pumps are available out there? Where can I find one???

Also my hand grips are torn, where can I buy the original grips that are made to work with the QTS switch?

Thanks for the help!
