OiL light flashing

While out riding my Oil light started flashing. I stopped at nearest gas station and added a quart....took of riding again and it started flashing again.....( only at speeds above 60 )...Headed home...light quit flashing. Has anyone had this happen ? I do need to change oil in it. The oil doesn't look bad.

try changing the oil filter first. That's the cheapest thing to troubleshoot, and sometimes filters block and make the gauges go wonky.

It's also possible the sending unit is bad. Both of those possibilities are preferable to the oil pump being bad.

I do not know why I was a quart low...Just wondering where is the oil sending unit.... Last year I broke the drive belt, and the neutral light has not worked since then. Could the belt have hit some wires and cause this ?

The sender is on the bottom back corner of the case on the left side. 99-01 are famous for the flickering light. Especially if it has recently been washed, or ridden in the rain.

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

do you know you check the oil with the bike standing straight up. You screw the dipstick until it seats and the unscrew it.
if you lay on the ground on the left side and look at the oil filter just to the left on the back edge of motor is the oil sending unit. It has a black slide on connector. Some model came with a rubber boot over it.
It only takes one drop of water to short it out

A quart is a lot to be down, how long since it'd last been changed how many miles since it was on the full mark?
If it's not leaking it must be burning...excessive smoke?
Oily spark plugs? Compression test may be in order...
How many miles on the bike?
