GL 1100 oil pressure drop

Post by JACOE »



Greetings from South Africa I need urgent help/advice on my Wing
Bought the bike after it stood in storage for several years. Gave it a full service, replaced the timing belts and cleaned the carbs
The oil light will flicker back on after several minutes of idling. I replaced the oil sensor and traced/checked the sender wire.No avail.
I then replaced the oil sensor with a dial-type pressure gauge. Pressure is 2.5 Bar after startup then drop to .5 Bar after several minutes.
Changed the grade of oil to no effect
PLEASE HELP

I posted this in that other thread you posted in.
Good bet it is the pickup screen plugged. It's on the right side just behind the lower engine mount, the one the long bolt goes all the way through. The front screw is difficult to get out but can be done, then replace with a slightly shorter screw.
