I'd say do an oil change replacing the oil filter AND cleaning the oil screen. There might be a blockage. Also, check to make sure your idle isn't set too low. Slow spining engine means slow spinning oil pump.,,,

The oil light on my harley stays on when I start it but goes out when I take the revs up to about 1200-1500 but still comes on when slowing down. I've done an oil change and put a new pressure switch


What kind of oil are your running? In what climate? The light goes off so close to idle I don't think you have anything seriously broken. It could even be something like too much resistance from corroded electrical connections.

Of course the other option is a bad oil pump. To be sure though, I'd try and locate something more accurate than your oil light. A screw-in oil pressure gauge would be ideal. Then you could compare the pressure you have with the normal pressure in the FSM.

Oil light comes on only at idle goes off once i touch the throttle


Sounds like an oil pump issue. Can you hook up a pressure gauge to find out how much you have at idle vs with throttle? Probably not a real problem but you might want to replace it anyway. Obvious question here, check oil level?

If your oil pressure light is coming, you probably have low oil pressure caused by worn engine parts. Usually low oil pressure is observed when you are idling since the pump is pumping slowly. When you raise RPM's, the pump speeds up and pressure increases. Take the bike to someone who can diagnose it properly, but it sounds like it is time for some repairs.

OIL LIGHT ON AND OFF AFTER ENGINE WARM UP ENGINE KNOCKS AFTER WARM UP 20W50 OIL IN NOW OIL IS NOT LOW.B WHEN ENGINE IS FIRST STARTED RUNS LIKE A DREAM THEN STARTS MAKING NOISE AND OIL LIGHT COME ON AT IDLE...


First of all , change your oil pressure sender . It should be easy to do and relatively inexpensive. See if that fixes the oil light going on and off. If the light stays on after that , turn off the bike and replace the oil pump. If you have a bad oil pump and continued to drive the bike , you may have caused serious damage to the motor and may end up having to disassemble the engine to determine the cause of the knock.

2006 Road king. Changed oil. After warm up the oil light comes on at idle. Goes out running down the road but comes back on at idle. What should oil pressure becold and hot ?


Hi Anonymous, if your oil pressure gauge is acting eratic or your oil pressure light stays on you could have a faulty sending unit, gauge or air in the system or a restricted oil filter, start by checking oil level in tank and make sure it is between the add and full mark. With engine at normal operating temperature 180-230 degrees and the use of a 10 micron synthetic media oil filter, oil pressure will be 30-38 psi at 2,000 RPM and 3-5 psi. at idle. The oil pressure light is designed to come on at 2 psi. or less. To accurately test oil pressure remove oil pressure sending unit and install known good oil pressure gauge that reads 0-50, there might possibly be some plumbing required for hard to access points. If you are out in the middle of nowhere and there is no cell phone service and your oil pressure gauge isn't working and your oil pressure light is burned out, despair not, you still have one last line of defense left HYDRAULIC LIFTERS, as long as those tireless workers are quiet, you have oil pressure, maybe not much, but enough to get you down the road at a slow to moderate speed using the least amount of RPMS as necessary. Good luck and have nice day.

95 Softail oil light comes on when it's warm only at idle.


the only way to check the oil pressure switch is to remove it and replace it, or test with a analog guage, if the pressure at idle is 5psi or higher at idle just replace the switch, the switch is not real percise and harleys have a dry sump oil system, and the pump is a g-rotor style dry sump pump at idle the engine might have 5-15lbs of pressure when warm and higher with engine revs you didnt say what weight oil you are running it could be to light of a viscosity 10-50, use a heaver weight oil 20-50 or like i use in my bike (2002 FLHTCU w/sidecar) straight 60wt hopes this helps

Oil Light Indicator


the oil light is actually a level sensor and not a pressure sensor. That being the case since the light only comes on at elevated and sustained engine speeds it sounds like your level is to low, or you are having a drain back issue.
