Low oil cutout switch

Post by jetchason » Mon Aug 20, 2018 9:26 pm



Is there a low oil cutout switch that prevents bike from being started? Oil light came on and starter will not initiate.

The OEM gl1200 does not have a oil level sensor,just a pressure sensor.

Did your oil light come on when the bike was running?

Oil lamp came on during initiating start.
Starter initiated and then failed.
Bike did not start and oil indication did not clear.
Further investigation identified blown 10 amp fuse in ignition system.
Replaced fuse and attempted to start again.
Same results occurred.
Zeroed in on issue possibly related to Starter Relay coil defect.
Have ordered new Starter Relay.
Everything else appears normal.
