I'm having the exact same problem going on. I'm told I have air in my valves, and they need to be bled. I have a Vulcan 1500. I was advised to put heavier weight oil. I use 10/40 and was advised to use 20/50 to hopefully blow that air out...with the higher pressure.

You will need to get a mechanical gauge to check for sure, but it sounds like your oil pump is not pumping enough pressure, or you have a big clearance somewhere in your motor that you are losing pressure at.

I changed my plugs on my 05 Suzuki c90 then the f1 light came on and stays on bike running good

Hi, Robert it should be noted that the reasons your EFI light stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying bike down/crashes, rainstorms/bike washings just before EFI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin, also carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes to reduce the risk of being stranded or towed, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

Just bought a2006 Suzuki cb90 800cc Buboulevard when bike is off switch is on light flash say check oil.. how do I know there is the right amount of oil in it.. now when bike on the light( oil) don't come...

Oil pressure is non-existant when the engine is with the key on, the oil pressure sensor tells the light to flash.... Now when the engine starts, the pressure sensor feels the pressure and sends a signal to the light all is well and good, so the light shuts off.

A lot more detail is really happening, but this will give you an idea.

2002 suzuki savage wont stay running and it only has 9770 miles on it

we have this problem too. Trued cleaning the whole fuel system, changing the carb & plugs. Some one told us that the coil is bad or the key ignition needs replacing as too many keys hanging when driving is bad. I sold it but the new owner is stumped too. It may be a common problem but who knows??? Best of Luck!

I own a gsxr 750 (2002) and when the bike is running the red oil light stays on and so doesnt the check light.what could this be??im new to this.thanks.

Hi, if the oil light is staying on...........BIG bucks to fix if you run it for too long, you should hear the engine banging away quite noisely if the oil pressure is way too low Is the bike fuel injected or does it have carburettors, if it is the F.I light, it could be a blocked fuel filter causing a drop in fuel pressure at the injectors..... hence the warning light coming on.
Get yourself a friendly bike shop to have a look for you... ask your friends if they use someone they would reccomend to you. Merry Xmas.

Light on ignition switch wont go off

Yes, the current stops flowing through them, even if they don't completely darken. The reason they go out slowly is because the residual heat takes a while to dissipate. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When starting K3 GSX1000R ,red light (oil) stays illuminated & F.1 displays where temp is... what does it mean

Your oil light should be light up when bike is not running with the key on and when starting the bike. This is perfectly normal.

Starting problem

Sounds like you might have cooked the battery. Try with a new one, start the bike and see how it runs. Hopefully you didnt fry anything else.
