Does everyone have faith in the original oil injection system or is pre-mix the way to go?

I've used it on every 500 I have ever owned and on my current 2 500's. Never had any issues or problems. I haven't heard of anyone having any probs either. I would recommend fitting check valves. That's about it.

Agreed. Injection is the way to go for a street bike. The system is reliable and works well. I have fitted check valves to deal with the common bypass issue. Very easy to do.

I've had many bikes with injection over the years. Never had any problems.

There is so much hate when discussing injection, but Puch introduced it in the form we know today in 1948, and it has been reliable ever since ;-)
