Oil pressure low?

Need more info. Usually this would be due to bearing wear at the crank IF a mechanical issue, that or the oil filter or pump. Then too if the engine top end has been removed and worked on some issues may arrise from there... But I have a hard time seeing what that could be. There are two very good web sites for you to get all you want. One is and the other is or .org, I forget if it is .com or .org, but these are the guzzi go too people.

Loss of opl pressure

might be the weight of oil you are using or brand. I've heard that Harley sportsters cant run amsoil because it thins to much once its warm and the oil pump can't make decent pressure on it. just a thought.

Moto guzzi 650 gt -gearbox whine in 5th gear at 50-60 mph any previous?regards

Guzzi is one great bike shy the gear box whine, I've worked on a handful of Guzzi and almost all of them have it. It does seem to get louder as the bike gets older. Keep a GOOD oil in it and shouldnt have any problems. Amsoil makes some of the best motorcycle oil i have found and that would be what i would run in it. During your next oil change check out the gears while you have the pan off to change your oil filter. Everything is easy to see and look at. If there is anything else i can help with or if you have any more questions please feel free to contact me

Depending on how much oil she uses.
Most engines use some oil and drip a little also.
Most older bikes use an automatic chain oiler which can go out of adjustment and dump oil everywher.
I would say 500 miles to a pint is OK.

Guzzi sometimes won't go into neutral

Sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. But start with a oil and oil filter change. Dirt and grit in the oil can cause the same problem. If the problem gets worst you will need to replace the bad fork. This is a very involved project and bets done in the shop.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Fran :)

Oil pressure switch again

after about a month this new switch shat its self and spewed oil every wherefortunately it was in my drive way and not on a runthis switch was then replaced with another from Stein Dinse and now this one appears to be on the way out ie slow oil leak from switch, I was wondering if anyone has had experiance with these switches failing and to warn others of these switches, it could result in an engine seizure or was dropping your bike from oil on the back wheel,I got completely fed up with the oil pressure switches. Wash the bike and they go out...ride in a hard rain and they stop working, maybe they'll start spewing oil all over the place. Good grief, I was changing them out more frequently than my tail light bulb. ,,,
