1200 - oil pressure issues at idle
Hi All, I have a 98 1200 Trophy with less than 7K on the clock.. so hardly used. Anyhow, I have an issue with the engine oil pressure warning light coming on at idle. It only happens when the engine is hot, i.e. engine fan is controling. When idling, the oil light starts to flicker. The hoter the engine the brighter the warning light. If I blip the throttle, the light goes out imediately, but as so as she returns to idle it lights back up again. I have set the idle speed at 1200, but that doesnt seem to cure things if the bike is idling in London traffic on a hot day. Oil has been changed and levels checked. All good. As there are no issues when the bike is cold or at normal running tempreature, the local dealer suggest changing the pressure switch, but I am sceptical. Any thoughts please..??? Thanks, Andy
