Oil Light on - September 25, 2007, 05:23 PM

Today while riding the bike in heavy traffic and mostly in low gear I noticed my oil light came on(when the bike was standing still) and went away as I started moving (air circulation started) ... I also realised that the fan which used to start running when the temperature went above 221 F doesnt work anemore ... I guess overheating is causing the pressure to rise .. I has a crash few days back and just wondering what kind of damage I am looking at. Thanks in advance.

Check your oil, the wreck probably displaced oil into your airfilter and you're low.

The fan probably lost a power connection.

Yes that is normal. It's just gas coming out of the overflow vent tube. No worries.

I checked it all and the fan cant rotate coz its blades are hitting the radiator .. and the radiator as a whole looks bent .. is K&N High-Flow Air Filter good as a replacement if I need it

Heat does not cause a rise in oil pressure...just the opposite. The oil thins as it becomes hotter and in this case, if you bike was mildly overheating, the oil was thinning to the point that it was dipping below factory minimums on oil pressure.

Fix you fan and change your oil.

Like Scott said, K&N air filters are really no improvement over stock. If you have exhaust of some other things to assist in air flow, get a BMC race filter and then you will see some benefit.

Hatch is right, I've heard more stories of loss on a dyno from a K&N. Stock is fine. BMC is an excellent race/performance filter, but you will really see the gains with modifications on the other side of the motor (e.g. exhaust, PCIII)

Sry Ice I dont like suzuki's styling ..

For my oil I just changed it a few days back and its Repsol oil with exact reccomnded viscosity .. I might have confused by mentioning air filter instead of radiator .. I dont think stock bike has a air filter in front of the radiator (am not sure) .. but my radiator definitely looks bent and the fan is jammed due to this ..

ps is air filter and radiator the same I am
