GL1500 Oil light not coming on

Post by agedbikeman »



Can someone tell me where the oil light switch is, my oil light is out, if the switch is easier to get to than the lamp I can run tests from the switch

Thanks

It's right next to where the oil filter screws on. On the right side.

Way easier to get to than the light, for sure.

I really wouldn't worry about it. If your bike doesn't use any oil, which I never had a bike that did,
