Oil pressure warning message
« on: December 13, 2019, 01:22:28 PM »
I know there is an old thread about this, but the last post was 2015, hence a new one. My 2013 Trophy has 85k on it and in the last couple of thousand miles the red light for oil pressure illuminated, along with a warning "oil pressure low" on the display. I stopped and checked the oil level, which was fine and there were no mechanical noises. I was on the west coast of Southern Ireland at the time, in the middle of nowhere, so started it up again and all was well. There had been torrential rain the day before when we got to the hotel and I thought that may have been a cause, but more likely it was wishful thinking on my part. We continued the rest of the trip and I have covered around 2000 miles since then. I started the bike up today after washing it through the week (bucket/sponge and hose method) and it came on again, but not on washing day. Oil level is okay. Stopped and restarted, no problem. I am suspecting the pressure switch, but anyone had this happen?

I had the same issue in 2017 on my '13.

https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,6713.0.html

The sender is on the right side, behind the hole in the frame gusset.  You can see the wire leading down to it.
I hosed mine down several times with WD40 and it eventually cleared up .... and has not occurred since.
I bought a new sensor, and attempted to put it in next 20K maintenance, but ... it beat me... wire goes tight over the top of the alternator, down behind the swingarm to  ?????.  Appeared to me the swingarm must be pulled to get at that connector ( suspect it may be to the shock adjuster?? ) and gave up...
I have extended warranty and figured I'd leave it to them.

Since then I've started the TTSE every couple of weeks during storage watching for the light to stay on.
Never happened again.
I now spray the wire and what I can see of the sensor with WD40 spring and fall.
Suspect issue for me was corrosion of the connector...

I know there is no way of checking the actual oil pressure using the Dealer Tool. Anyone know if there is access to another oil pressure port that might be easier to reach?

PS...Happy Christmas  and Holidays to all!
