I am in the process of reviving an early 70's k100. I am not confident in the oil injection system. Would it be alright to just mix oil with the gas?

A prefered method when a bikes auto system is either getting old or suspect.
Make sure the pipework on the oil pump is capped off and pre mix no problem.

MIXING

I think that you should try the old system. I would clean out the injection system and tank with Diesel fuel to make sure that it is in fact completely clean. It is an oil base so it wont hurt the system. I would then put synthetic 2 stroke oil in the tank, AND then mix some synthetic 2 stroke oil in the gas. Synthetic oil is really great for this. I used the same process in a 50cc Honda moped in Hawaii to ensure that it in fact was working. IF the oil system is working then you will need to add oil to it and then not add any more to the fuel tank. IF YOU DECCIDE TO use regular two stroke oil it will foul the plugs and smoke if hte system is working...Synthetic won't do this. Good luck and let us know what you find out. The FORUM is a tool for all of us and we can only learn from feedback...so get back to us.
