If you are going to premix you'll have to go to larger jets since the oil going through the jets will effectively make your mixture leaner. How much larger I couldn't say. Make sure you block off...

The letter in the 10th position in the VIN gives you the year. An '84 would be an E and an '85 would be an F.

What is the part number for that tank? Is it for a DR750 or something else like a DR650?

My 74 dt100 had oil injection, and so does my Hodaka Road Toad.
