    Oil pressure warning

    Has anybody else had the oil pressure warning come on even though there is plenty of oil in the bike? The oil does look a little murky but would that make any difference?

    Did this happen whilst riding or when you started the bike ?

    How long did you run the Engine before switching off ?

    Do you get the accompanying message "WARNING Oil Pressure Low" ?

    Your Local Dealer should be the first port of call. If it's still under Warranty get them to collect your bike and bring a Loaner, asap

    Let us know what transpires, please

    Cheers

    Hi oz1759,

    What was the temperature when this happened, and how long had the bike been standing for ?

    There is a previous Thread here : No oil pressure where Member ISU Cyclone had a similar issue -
    after investigation by teh Dealer the result was that there was no issue other than the cold !

    Of course if there are other symptoms, such as accompanying warnings on the Instrument Panel,
    Unusual engine noises, no visible oil in the sight glass etc, then these need to be investigated
    and the engine should not be used until diagnosed !

    I have the light come on occasionally with the low pressure warning display, had it looked at by Jack Lilleys and they couldn't find anything wrong. This does tend to happen after I have cleaned it so me thinks its a dodgy sensor. Going in for the 20,000 mile service soon so hopefully they will replace the sensor.

    It comes on intermittently but when it comes on it stays on, cold, hot, it makes no difference, the spy glass shows oil (although its looking a bit murky). The red warning light comes on and the dash displays "Warning low oil pressure". The bike sounds fine and runs without missing a beat i am wondering if its a sensor glitch, which if I'm honest i was hoping somebody was going to say they had the same, it had the engine recall last year so there is extended warranty so I'm not overly concerned.

    Don't be too worried, get it checked though. I got them to pick it up and they brought it back free of charge and found nothing wrong.

    Oil Pressure Warnings should not be taken lightly or ignored..

    If it happens after you've cleaned the bike I am tempted to ask if you are using a Pressure Washer ?
    A definite no-no, in my book anyway..

    No, not a pressure washer at all. Good old-fashioned bucket and sponge.
