Oil light flickers at low RPM when warm

Post by zamboni920 » Mon Jul 30, 2012 7:15 pm

Did some forum search and came across an old topic in GL1100, wich describes the same issue I am having.
http://www.goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewt ... f=4&t=5987
I am wondering if there ever was a follow-up..... the famous Happy Ending.
How much should/can I check without engine removal.
My light flickers only at very low RPM's, usually only idle, about 800RPM. And only when engine is good and warm. I was considering going to heavier oil, but this would only mask the problem.
Any ideas , suggestions ?
