Oil Pressure Warning Light - FZS 600


Recommended Posts

Anybody know if the oil pressure light should come on with ignition or just when there is a problem.

If it should turn on what could cause it not to ?

Thanks

an oil pressure lamp should be lit when the engine is not running, as the oil will have no pressure. It's a kind of safety check, if it is not illuminating at this time, it probably isn't going to illuminate when the engine does lose oil-pressure.

Thanks for the reply, any thoughts as why it doesnt light, engine runs smooth and doesnt burn oil, as far as I am aware.

Have you got a owners manual for the bike ? If not try here :

The oil light is an Oil Level light Not an Oil pressure light. To check the system is Ok put the kill switch to the Run Position, Turn the main ignition switch on making sure the engine is in neutral and press the starter switch. The oil light should come on then go out when the engine starts and you release the starter switch. Remember as it is an oil level light it can come on when braking or accelerating hard as per the above manual page 3-3 .If the light comes on under normal riding check the level via the sight glass or dipstick .Tony
