An oil light question.....

So I have a 97 900rr that I recently changed the thermostat on. That's besides the point. Yesterday I took the bike out for about a thirty\45 minute ride as I got closeto the drive being over my red oil light turned on? I pulled over and turned it off for about a minute and decided to turn it on and drive it (I was onlya couple houses away). Well I get home parked it and waited about 5 to 10 minutes, went to turn it on and the light was gone? The oil was a little over but not below the line in the window. Any suggestions on what to check or do 1st? By the way the bike worked fine no knocks, cranked up fine even when the light was on? The only thing to add is I do have a neutral switch wire that is faulty, I thought I had fixed the wire but missed another frayed area on the wire...

Re: An oil light question.....

Possibly another frayed wire, this time from the oil pressure switch? On the Honda the oil light comes on when there is a drop in oil pressure, not a drop in oil level like some other manufactures. Check more wires for arching or grounding. Assuming your reading of the oil level is correct. Bike straight up, not on side stand.

It would be the oil pressure not level that would trigger this. Could be the oil pump or just a faulty circuit.



Get ready to laugh... When I first read through this the first thing I thought was, RED LIGHT??? that's just the MIL.... sigh...

Another frayed wire was correct! I threw some liquid tape on. It and went ahead and ordered a new one on ebay. Thanks for the direction
