On the right side of the bike, below the oil sight glass there is what looks to be a large 21mm bolt head. Remove this "bolt" and you'll find a cage like structure with a fine mesh screen on it. This is what's referred to in the Owners Manual as the "Engine Oil Intake Filter" or "Oil Mesh Filter" and the manual says that it only needs to be checked/cleaned every ~12000 miles. My philosophy is if I'm going to be getting oily anyway, it's worth the 50 cents for a new crush washer to check and clean the screen while I'm down there. There will typically be some small metal shavings on the screen, particularly for the first few oil changes. Like the sediment that comes out of your drain hole, If it's just a few very small pieces, you're probably fine. If anything looks too big, you may need to investigate further. Another thing to check is to make sure that the plastic cap is still in the end of the screen filter. I've heard of a few cases of this piece falling off (both on Supersports though). I don't know that the plastic would do severe damage from falling off in your crank case, but it would make it so that filter wasn't doing its job. Clean the filter screen. Some people just swish the screen around in a jar of gasoline or kerosene to clean it. I use a can of VP carburetor cleaner and just spray it off. Carefully replace the oil screen using a new crush washer. Make sure that everything sits flat while finger tightening it. I've bent the crush washer in the past while putting the screen on and found that I had an oil leak afterwards. My manual says to tighten the screen to 45 Nm (33 ft-lbs), check your manual to be sure.

    When at a stop oil gage drops to zero and says check gages

    Either your oil pump pick up screen is clogged or the oil pump is going out or there is excessive wear on the main bearings. Most likely the screen.
    You need to drop the oil pan to access the screen and pump.

    When i drive, the car tells me to stop due to low oil pressure.

    check your oil level, it may need oil... if the oil level is good, it could be your oil pump or a clogged screen on your oil pickup screen..the oil pan will have to be dropped to check this and/or replace the oil pump or clean the screen... if it is not one of these things, then it will be either a serious problem with the motor or a computer/electronic issue

    Turn of sign ''oil change required''

    have you changed your oil? If its new then just reset the computer/ diagnostic screen between your RPM and Speed. Press the screen button until it reads "setup menu, Hold reset" now hold the button until the screen changes again.

    press the button until screen reads "system check, hold reset"

    press and hold the button. It will start a basic system check,

    First check is for oil, it will read the percent of "good oil left" and say "if new, press and hold reset"

    thus press and hold reset, and the computer will reset your oil life to 100%.

    Low oil pressure

    Hi, you will need to inspect the oil pump screen. it is clogged. normally when the light illuminates at low idle, its because of a clogged oil pump screen. Here is a little description about this device.

    Also known as an oil pickup tube, this strainer assembly in the inlet side of oil pump circuit screens out larger impurities and debris before they enter the pump. A finely woven mesh screen is on the sump end of the assembly, and the opposite end of the assembly either presses into or bolts to the oil pump.

    • The oil pump sump screen, or pickup, must be checked to be sure it is clean.
    • A new oil pump does not come with a new screen.
    • Some rebuilders replace every screen with a new one.
    • A plugged screen can ruin a new engine in a very short time.
    To access most oil pump screens, the Engine Oil Pan must be removed.

    Please rate and god bless:)

        Black screen of laptop

        There are only 3 people that I know of that can fix that screen/oil issue. it is usually easier to replace. Because the screen will have to disassembled (generally done at factory level) and oil removed.

        It is a delicate task and no service shop will attempt.

        The cost of the screen is $125-179

        good luck
