I am a new owner of a 1997 ZR 440 and am very happy with the overall handling and performance but the oil consumption is brutal. Most of my previous sleds used oil at about a 40:1 ratio. This thing is about 25:1.Is there an effective way to adjust the oil pump other than the cable from the throttle assembly?

Many of us have ditched the oil injection system altogether and run premix, since these motors are hard to come by and expensive to fix (see ebay for used motor prices!) this has been a complaint on many cats but as long as its not fouling plugs and running good, oil is cheaper than a rebuild or a new motor, imo. search for oil injection delete for instructions if you go that way.

Thanks GentJim. I may consider looking into premix as I am a bit old school and don't have a problem mixing gas
