Question about Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide Motorcycles
The oil tank is full, no pressure and the oil lamp is on
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, 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

Several things could be at play: Type or weight of oil, confirm this first. Not to question the rebuild but if not done properly (improper bearing clearances, too large) the oil pressure can be low and perhaps a worn pump too. While I am unfamiliar with the engine and oil pump loaction I'd check it if your able too. You'll probably need a good set of feeler gauges to check this if these clearances are outside of the pumps limits the pump will be less able to create pressure; this is of course more evident when the oil heats up.
Another cheap fix is to use a heavier weight oil.
Hope this might help,

What's your miles between changes?1500 to 2500 miles 1 qt. aint bad.Are you injected?do computer thing for ign/timing and air/fuel settings.If you're carb do jet cleaning and check float bowl setting.Check that float isn't leaking[full of fuel].Check plugs for good color and look for black residue in rear pipe,signs of bad air/fuel mixture and bad burning plug[coil voltage].If your carb doesn't have float check setting of rod that operates the fuel diaphragm.Do computer check for ign timing.Yea, if the plugs are oil fouled then forget what I said bout oil consumption.Baby it till winter and get top end done.Don't worry,2007 is too new for a top end.General tune-up should fix you up.New coils maybe.
