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.
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 ?
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

My Bike is a 2006 V92 TC....... Yes It was standing straight up when I checked oil ... and I seated the dipstick to pull it back out....
I plan on changing oil this weekend
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?
