i don't think you can see the oil when the bike is running...not sure though..check it after you stop the bike and wait 15min for the oil to drop back down into the pan. make sure you have enough oil in her....

You won't be able to see the oil level when the engine is running because it's kinda swooshing around...switch the engine off, put the bike on a level base, then let it settle for a few minutes.

Did you add or remove any oil? My old R1 used to bring up the oil light on some occasions, but the levels were fine, so I suspect some dodgy electrical connection somewhere...

Check your dodgy service manual and look for bloody oil press. indicator light symptoms. At least it's a start, 'innit?

WHen it is running.... If you look at the oil sight window.... Can you see oil flowing or something in the window? I thought you could. I think my old f4 was like that.

Will someone please check. I am kinda freakin out.

NO I never seen it flowing through the sight glass on mine... when you turn on the bike it should disappear and then when you turn it off it should return to the sight glass in 5-10 mins...

Forget about your oil level. It propbably has nothing to do with oil. The light is an MIL (Malfunctioning Indicator Lamp) and can come on when you have FI problems too. What were you just working on? A PCIII install? You could have a short somewhere in one of the PIN connectors or one hooked up wrong.

If you hook it up right!

Double check all of your PIN connectors on your injectors.
