If somebody like me was doing the wiring, it's very possible that I screwed up the wiring and there's nothing wrong that putting the oil light back on it's own circuit wouldn't cure. I'm not saying that's what it is, but after some house rewiring, we had to turn on the front porch light to get the stove to light. It happens.

Nothing less than synthetic for such a critical application.

5w30 Car oil is just as good, works in transmissions too

Maybe he doesn't have 30,000 miles

maybe he doesn't like to change his oil every 3K

If you don't care, then why do you post?

Why don't you worry what the f&ck you say and quit worrying about me.

And you were saying something about being condescending?

I always keep up wht great work. If an a$$hole like you doesn't like me, I know I'm on the right track.

"If you don't care, then why do you post?"

If you actually read what I wrote instead of becoming so belligerent you would have seen my point was his question IS "completely legit" and should be answered coherently.

Not muddied by useless and dismissive comments like "quit changing the oil so much and ride the damned thing."

So there have been two responses, barring all the noise, that have been offered so far:



Airhawk - > pump needs to be primed



Sarnali - > you f*cked up the wiring, retrace your steps and undo, see if it fixes it.



My vote is for Airhawk's; there's no way the fuse for the lights and the turn signals have anything to do with pumping oil in the engine.

Very true but splicing into wiring could effect the oil pressure switch and cause the light to come on, which was the point I was trying to make.

This mat be a possibility...



Does the oil filter cover fit more than one way? On the Kaw. Super Sherpa the cover will fit either way but only one is correct (it has an oil channel cast in the cover). Maybe worth a check.
