Question about 2004 Yamaha XJR 1300

Oil Light ON ???

Recently made an oil change on my XJR 2002 model, since changing filter and refilling with oil the light now comes on when I try to start and will not allow the motor to turn over. I have traced all wiring, all plugs, and all possible problem points but still it will not start. The only thing that is different to the bike now from when it was last running (Nov 08) is that I have fitted an Acewell dash, which does have oil light of its own but I can not see how this can stop the motor from turning over...any ideas?

    The Acewell dash was added due to accident which smashed the original instruments beyond any possible use. The oil light in the orginal instrument as well as the new are just indicators, they simple reflect a result from a problem some where else in the system, or at least this is what they should be doing. I have totally disconnect the new dash as well and it still will not start (it did before the dash was added), unplugged sender - no start.

Refit your original dash and see if the engine starts, it may maybe that it does not have all the wiring you need for ignition

Yamaha xjr 1300 electrical fault oil light comes on with headlight

Just sorted my problem with oil light coming on when lights are switched on. Removed the back off the clocks and realised there was a missing oil light bulb, and the holder was out of place. It was the light from the dash light coming through the hole for the oil light which made it look like the oil light was lit. put new bulb into oil light holder and all back in place everything now working 100%. Happy days !!! Hope this helps

Oil filter

To change your oil filter, remove oil drain plug, drain oil into an oil pan, clean and replace oil drain plug, then remove oil filter, pour a drop of clean oil onto a new oil filter, and lube gasket, then replace the old oil filter with the new oil filter. Finally, add clean oil to the motorcycle until the oil level window shows oil in the middle of the viewing window when the bike is upright.
