I checked the ports and diagrams in the manual (Kawasaki shop version) and there's no direct oil port(s) going into main bearings, etc., so I feel safe from that respect. I haven't completely decided to do away with the pump, tank and lines, but if I leave it I may come up with some smaller reservoir, just for appearance reasons (ie: give it a more stark, race-bike look).
Other than ratio suggestions, what's a good quality, low-smoke, 2-stroke oil (Oh NO...another oil thread?)?

Hi Lynn,

I like Suzuki and Yamaha oils. Cheap and no smoke. Your bike wont smoke after running it on the street for a bit.
