    Oil pressure light

    Took the cr in for service and mot today. I get a call to tell me that the oil pressure light is coming on under 2k. They completed the oil change again and changed the filter - still the same. They now have to get some specialist equipment in from the USA to check the the pressure and thereby begin to eliminate causes.

    Anyone experienced this before ? :087:

    Presumably the bike did not have an oil pressure light on before the service but did afterwards. Logically it points to something that happened during the service, although logic does not always get you the right answer.
    Did you use a Honda dealer? If not, then what make and model of oil filter did they use and what type of oil?
    It is remotely possible that the procedure has cleaned/dislodged/upset something in the oil pressure sender itself or moved a bit of debris under the seat of the oil pressure relief valve (wherever that is).  It might be easier and quicker to firstly fit a new oil pressure switch, unless the Honda price is prohibitive, although debris in the oil pressure relief valve is my hunch.
    Keep us posted

    Annoying.

    Do you have a loan bike (and is it any good?  :007:)?

    Agree with Scimitar above, keep pressuring them for answers and let us know please.

    Good luck.  :028:

    "specialist equipment from the USA"
    normal procedure to align the warp coils on a V4 engine also the neutron injectors have to be recalibrated.

    dude the bullshit level on that one is over 9000 and what angers me most is that they even try to insult anyones intelligence with a blatant lie like that.

    never ever go to that dealer ever again. I would not even start the bike when ( and if ) I get it back. I would not trust them to have used the right oil and filter or anythign for that matter.

    man that makes me mad

    That sounds like a prime case of the three "B's" (Bullshit Baffles Brains)

    I still suspect that poor housekeeping methods have allowed debris to find its way under the oil pressure relief valve. Infuriating!  Try to establish who is going to pay to sort out this mess. It should not be you!

    Honda dealer?  I trust it was not?  Have miles been put on the bike while it was in the shop?

    If not a honda dealer I would get the bike trailered to one and have them look at it with a view to landing dealer number one with the bill for any damage.

    Years ago I saw my own yamaha going flat out on a dual track when it should have been having its 500 mile service. The mechanic ran it dry of two stroke oil and blew the main bearings out. 3 months of walking ensued.

    If that happened to me & they come back with that BS I'd be starting to think they may have, fitted the filter with some plastic storage seal not removed correctly, wrong filter or swapped something out for another job in the workshop. Dump the oil & pull the filter back off & check it out is all I can say.

    Crikey the world just loves a conspiracy theory don't it!

    The logic behind getting specialist equipment to measure the pressure seems fine to me. The light was coming on either because of an electrical/sensor fault or the actual pressure is low. Therefore the 2 have to be separated in order to eliminate each other I would've thought, or am I missing something. The test result showed @ 50kpa @ idle and 200kpa @ 6k rpm.

    Sump was removed and oil ways checked nothing suspicious found. A used oil pump from a low mge wreck was sourced and fitted. Result now reading 500kpa @ 6krpm. Bike reassembled and road tested no faults or leaks found. Felt very sweet on the way back home!

    As to the provenance of the dealer - I've used them for 30 years and during that time they've always been superb. Its a Honda main dealer who have not lost the personal touch and indeed have saved me money in the past when I have requested work to be done which they found wasn't needed.

    As always I was given the faulty part that was removed from the bike. Additionally the only charge to me was for the used pump.

    They said this situation was very rare and had never come across it on a CR but very occasionally other bikes in the range but certainly not a common occurrence.

    Bring on the summer!

    Good to hear it is sorted!
    And yes, we are a judgemental species unfortunately.
