no oil pressure after change? - July 3, 2009, 05:21 PM

just got done changing the oil in my bike, 1996 zx6. i go to take it for a spin around the neighborhood to make sure nothing is leaking and i now get the red oil pressure light coming on. all i did was drain oil, take off old filter, and replace all. Anyone have any idea what would cause this?

It should be to that line with the bike in the full upright position, not on the kickstand.


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

Fresh oil can look clear in the window, it's hard to judge sometimes. So it may be low (not up to the slight glass) or over serviced (filled beyond the site glass).

That should not be the problem. I run that filter as well. I was asking because some cartage filters have a check that and if not installed in the proper direction of flow the valves can block flow.

Did you start it? Dumb question, did you loosen or knock the connector for the pressure sender off. If you oil level drops in the sight glass your pump is atleast moving oil.

hmm maybe, when i first put oil in it the red oil pressure light was not on. i ran it for like 1 or 2 mins then stopped to recheck the oil level. then i cleaned up, pulled the bike out of the garage and started it and the oil pressure light stayed on at that point.

edit:ill have to check it out tomorrow morning, but where is the connector located? close to the oil filter? and since my bike is a 1996 does it have a pressure sensor or is it just an oil level sensor?

I've seen the check valve in new filters go bad.
Even if the level was low the pressure light should go out.
Replace the filter.

If you did everything right,ride it a while.It's like when you have a car and you don't put your gas cap back on,you get the check engine light.....same thing with bikes.


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven
