Hello, I was just helping my buddy do up his '01 ZL 500 with some accessories over the weekend. When we went to start it up, the oil light came on, there is plenty of oil, so what else could it be? Does the oil light have another function, like an engine light could mean any number of things. It has never come on before but I don't think we could have caused it meddling with anyting, we pulled his handle bars apart to put on some hand guards, and put on a new windshield but no performance add-ons. So does anybody have any suggestions or ideas?
Location: EastCentral MN * * * (just N of TwinCities)
Where I sled: East Central Minnesota - I want to go back to the UP though
You mention there's plenty of oil but is it full?. If you haven't tried yet, try adding oil see if it goes out. I know the light on my '98 ZR goes on when the reservoir is still almost half full.
Just an easy test to see if it's something simple before tearing things apart.
