Hi... 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?

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 A.
Yes, as you get to higher speeds the oil gets thin and pumps harder, but sense you went to thicker oil, it is most likely clogging your oil filter, then when you idle down it doesn't happen as the oil pump and filter are not pushing as hard. Oil change is not real expinsive, I would change oil back to the 5w-30 and for sure change oil filter, before it causes possible damage.
You can do it..... Look up in the Owners manual what you need to do on certain km/miles since last tune-up. Normally, would be adjust plugs gap, clean air filter, change oil+filter, oiling certain moving paart including chain greasing. Btw, go to Google and download a Owner/Repair manual for the bike.
Oil change without filter 3.5 quarts
Oil change with flter change 4.0 quarts.
Primary 1 quart.
Transmission 20-24 oz.
Very important check your fluid levels afterwards refilling to make sure you have correct level of fluids. Hope this helps.
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.
