If the Low Oil Pressure Indicator Lights

If you check your engine oil level
regularly, you should never see the low oil
pressure indicator while riding. Normally,
it will only light momentarily when you
turn the ignition switch ON. Occasionally,
it may flicker at or near idling speed.
Low oil pressure may be caused by an oil
leak, a low oil level, or some problem in
the engine's lubrication system.
If the indicator comes on while you're
riding, don't ignore it. Pull safely to the
side of the road. If possible, pull the clutch
lever in and coast to a stop. Stop the
engine as soon as it's safe to do so.
