high oil consumption Touring 500SLE

My 96 Skidoo Touring SLE is a 500 fan it seems to burn about 30:1 (sorry not 70:1) oil compared to my old 1980 500 fan which used 50:1. I though with oil injection you should get better oil consumption? I check the marks on the oil injection and they line up.Is there any other adjustments or shoul I buy A new oil injector? Any comments? Help... Thanks

Your consmumption at 70:1 is likely lower than avg. From my understanding they are designed to pump the oil when it is needed, ie WOT and not idle.

Check your oil pump and the cable hook up. Make sure the lines meet properly. Check with your dealer I can't remember, but I think the lines should match when you are at WOT
