One of the most reliable things about the majority of 2 strokes is the freaking oil injection system. I know Kawasaki and Yamaha to have ridiculously reliable O.I. systems.

For race purposes...sure, then Premix.. but for street use. Run the pump.
You are taking what i am saying out of context and you know it. But i have modified Suzuki GT750 crankcases to run premix, got 95hp @ sea level.
