Most oil pumps are very reliable and offer variable mix, so you smoke less at idle and low RPMs but still get full lubrication at full throttle. Both Sea-Doos and Yamahas have issues with the little hoses used to route the oil. Keep the hose in good shape and it should last forever.

There is a very small chance of oil pump failure, and some folks prefer premix for that reason, and don't mind the extra smoke and expense in extra oil.

Which is right for you? Hard to say. Hopefully others chime in with their thoughts to help you out on your decision.
