Get well, Paul, and watch for signs of pneumonia, which seems to creep in on the heels of this particular flu after you think you're over it.

I got slapped with the bug the day after having a bunch of teeth extracted. That was a bit of a scare as I figured my immune system was otherwise engaged. But I apparently had defenses in reserve and came out of it in a week or so.  It was the first cold or flu I've had in several years. :43:

Looks like it was a poor connection/corrosion in the oil pressure sensor connection as the problem has gone away and not been seen since. Thanks for the help and advice.

Just had the same intermittent warning light on my bike too. Checked the connection to the oil pressure switch and it had also "gone orange". Cleaned it up and greased it with anti-corrosion grease and now is fine again. Thanks for the tip!

Had the same problem come back again after I thought I'd cured it but no joy. In the end I changed the oil pressure switch and given it a good 5 hour ride today and that seems to have cured it. One to watch as the corrosion on the switch is hidden by the rubber boot that covers it.

This topic takes me back. My Dad always said that whenever you’re fault-finding you start with the simple things and work towards the most complicated. About 40 years ago I was supposed to meet him but when I was part way there the oil pressure light came on. I found a phone box and called him in a panic.

“Is the oil level OK? Is it performing normally?”
“Yes.”
“Is the engine clattering or running hot?”
“No.”
“Then find a spares shop, buy a pressure switch for it and we’ll fit it when you get here.”

And that was it, of course.

I've experienced exactly the same issue: red led and oil pressure indicator on at idle speed with engine hot.
The dealer has checked the connections of the sensor and has found a bad contact.
Problem solved.
