Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FLHR - FLHRI Road King
If you indeed do not have any oil pressure, our engine will rattle very badly. It'll sound like tin can full of rocks because your lifters are hydraulic. If you've installed a gauge on your bike and it's showing no oil pressure, this is not unusual.
A Harley engine is a high volume low pressure system. The reason is that the engine is a roller bearing engine. Unlike an engine built with "shell type babbit bearings", you Harley will not hold a lot of oil pressure, especially when it's hot. The oil pressure switch on the older bikes used to turn off with only four pounds of oil pressure. You might can screw your oil pressure gauge out and spin the engine over, not start it, but just spin it over for a few seconds to see if oil pumps out of the pump.
If you're still not sure, trailer your bike to the nearest dealer and let them investigate the problem.
