Re: cbr 954 oil light

are you usuing the cossect weight oil, how does the engine sound when you see the light on. if you are usuing the correct oil and you dont have any unusal noises then you most likly have a sensor going bad or a poor connection at the sensor.

when you are on a honda you are on the best

I assume you have checked the oil level and it's okay?
Do an oil pressure test.

Re: cbr 954 oil light

happened 2 me after a fresh oil change.

2 miles late i stop to eat

10 minutes later i get on the bike, oil light comes on but when i rev-ed it went off so i assumed it was making pressure, jump on the freeway and hit the rev-limiter....KABAM!

opened her up, crankshaft is toast. oil starved.

$1,000 in the hole.

be careful.

Re: cbr 954 oil light

Loss of oil pressure when oil gets hot is, to my simple mind, a clear indication of bearings going.

Damage to the bearings is certainly likely if the pressure is low.
Having changed the oil just two weeks ago could indicate something wrong as a result of that. Not enough oil or a blocked filter would be the obvious ones. Low oil volume though would generally be fine at low revs and cause the light to come on at higher revs.
The only way to be sure the bearings are okay is to check the oil pressure.
When the oil was changed was the engine run at all before the new oil was put in? A compression test maybe?
