Engine warning light
on: March 20, 2020, 11:49:29 AM
Have just had a rather wet week in Wales on my versys 2017 model as you can imagine it was really cruddy .
Went out this morning and the engine warning light was on I rode it round the block and it stayed on
This was prior to any cleaning going on, post cleaning it was still on
It has only done 6500 miles
I have over 60k on my 2 previous versys 1000 without a single blip have I been lucky till now
I am no mechanic Help

Have had two FI faults riding in the rain. Keep starting and riding like the FI fault light is not there. It will go off after a while.
This is a bloody great Bike....!

Check the connection to the oil pressure switch. It can corrode a little and make it seem like the oil pressure is low, throwing up a fault on the display. A clean up and some protection on it sorts it out (if that's what your problem is)
Hope you get sorted  :028:

I had a similar problem, and as mentioned the oil pressure switch was the culprit.

Peeling back the rubber boot that covers the switch revealed lots of rusty damp crud on the oil pressure switch connection.
Once cleaned the fault seemed to clear.

But, a few rides later the fault returned.
I fitted a new oil pressure switch and all has been well since.

You will find the switch on the underneath of the left side of the engine (gear lever side) covered by a rubber boot, hidden behind a metal water pipe.
