Hello, folks and many thanks for welcoming!
I got my new ride, and already she kept me busy for some time. I stripped it down - removed all fairings as few things need to be taken care of.
Changed oil and filter, but want also to change air filter and also access the oil pressure switch - oil pressure warning light tests ok but then extinguishes before engine is started. This needs to be investigated. And overall now it is good time to learn how she is built. I like the way she is put together, good solutions.
My TT SE is 2014, with 10 500 miles on it. But seems in 6 years she has not seen a lot of love. The gear lever was almost seized, a bit dirty, whoever changed the battery - left the + terminal completely lose - barely touching, therefore it was badly heating up.
But she will be alright in couple of weeks when some parts arrive, and backrest pad for my dear. One more step - to get heated seats installed.
I had to put fairings back together bot not completely as tomorrow comes the inspector from registration office to check it (VIN/documentation), so don't be surprised some bits still missing - I will strip her again... Wife says if she feels I have lost - I'm in a garage with my new TT...

Hi TTSE LV,

..... oil pressure warning light tests ok but then extinguishes before engine is started.
This needs to be investigated.

I have some GOOD NEWS for you - That is NORMAL ! .....

Page 24 of the Owners Handbook :

LowOil Pressure

When the Ignition is switched on, the Low Oil Pressure Warning Light will illuminate.

The Low Oil Pressure Warning Light will go off after 1.5 seconds.

With the engine running, if the engine oil pressure
becomes dangerous low, the low oil pressure warning light
in the Tachometer will illuminate, and OIL PRESSURE LOW
will also be visible in the lower message screen.

So at Ignition ON, it is just a Bulb check for 1.5 seconds.  :028:

Cheers  :821:

Hi Coconut,
Thanks for advise!  :002:
However I cannot agree with you in this case. If there is a pressure switch which is working on/off at certain threshold value or pressure, it should be closed  under threshold (illuminating red in panel) and warning on the low pressure. This is how this type of sensor works - on/off@value. If light is off with no engine running it should mean no switch is not closing or wrong signal received to panel.

If I check my OM then this is what says:



At least this is what OM supplied with my bike says, and it is logical for this type of system.
Does your TT do the same as mine?

Just to explain: Oil pressure illuminates ok at testing when ignition is switched on. It goes out after the test (1,5 sec) and is not anymore illuminated neither engine is not running or is running.
So engine is not running, and low oil pressure warning light is still off without any pressure in the system.

Sorry if my previous email is not clear or misleading, English is not my native language therefore some thoughts might get different meaning.
