Use 10/40 synthetic or semi-synthetic MOTORCYCLE oil. Don't be tempted to use slightly cheaper car oils as these are designed for use with dry clutches and contain 'friction modifiers' which make the oil slippier to help the car engines run more economically. These will make the clutch slip on powerful bikes which have a 'wet' clutch running in a bath of engine oil. You can get away with car oils in less powerful bikes.

My oil lamp has come up on my 2003 Daytona 955i and the oil has collected moisture after only 400 miles

Could be a hairline crack in your head, or warpage allowing your coolant to mix in with your oil and your oil to seep into your combustion chamber and burn off leaving your oil low. Has your car ran hot recently? A cracked intake or warn gasket on your intake or heads could do the same. Research it

I own a triumph 2005 daytona 650.could anyone tell me if the engine light,flashing oil display and oil light being apparent, is normal when turning the key,not actually starting it

Not sure about the 650, but on my 04 Daytona 600, is does the same thing, this is the engine check lights, and oil low lights being checked. IF you tried to start the bike it wouldnt, until this sefl test is complete.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Daytona 650 Is any chance the oil light is on if too much oil there?

Doubtful that is the cause.
Is the sensor faulty? Is there actually pressure there?

89 daytona foamy oil... white smoke...???

The information you gave gives the impression that the head gasket has gone bad and the engine needs to be rebuilt. You can just replace the head gasket, but that's just a quick fix for now. The antifreeze mixed with the engine oil is bad, Antifreeze is very corrosive to the main crank shaft bearing and most likely need to be addressed. At this point might as well go through the whole engine since it's apart. Sorry for the bad news friend.
