Thank you Tony for providing the correct information on how to turn off the blasted light. MY manual provided incorrect information on how to do it. It told me to push a button that doesn't exist, along with the select button

I made my hubby come out and see if he could figure it out and he got just as frustrated as I had. Finally, I found this thread.

Thanks Norman for suggesting it get moved to this section, I never would have found it otherwise

Re: OIL LIGHT ON

I just purchased a K3 heavy with 5000 miles on it..

Just under the Tach on the left (at 0-1000rpm) there is a little OIL symbol..

I changed the oil and filter even though the dealer said all fluilds had been checked/changed...

Is this symbol supposed to be there? What does it mean? Can i get rid of it? If so, How do i get rid of it?

Is this the OIL check or change indicator? I do not have an owners manual..yet

Thanks..

Re: OIL LIGHT ON

I don't know how the K3 works, but if the light is the change oil light, it will reset if you turn off the bike, press the select and reset buttons on the right side simultaneously, turn the ignition to on, and wait just a few seconds. It will reset itself and go out.

If instead its the check oil light, put the bike on the center stand, get down on your hands and knees and check the sight glass which is on the left side of the bike, below the floorboard. I need a flashlight to see this. If the sight glass is clear, the oil level is low and you shouldn't run it. If the sight glass is amber colored like motor oil, run the bike for a minute, then shut it off and give it a couple of minutes to drain. If the glass is still fully covered amber, you're over filled and some oil will have to come out. If the amber color is in the middle of the two marks on the sight glass, your level is OK. You could have an oil pump pressure issue, or you could have an oil pressure sensor issue. The former is bad. The latter isn't too bad. Either would need to be repaired.

Via con Dios!

It's the "Low Oil Level" warning. (The "Change Oil" indicator is just below it, visible when your oil change interval comes along.)

If this indicator is on when the bike is on level ground at a steady speed, you have enough oil left to do the job but only just barely. The oil level is probably low enough that there's none visible in the sight glass. (On the other hand, if the level in the sight glass is normal, you may have a bad sensor.)

If this is the only indicator that's on, check the oil level and add more if needed. (Frequently, after changing the filter you'll need to "top off" the oil level after the first time you run the engine, because the filter will have absorbed some.)

If the red "Low Oil Pressure" light on the right side of the panel comes on while the engine is running, though, that's when you're in immediate peril of oil starvation and need to shut down the engine.

HTH.

It is now reset.

If you wish to adjust the interval betwwen oil changes:-
1/ Turn ON the IGN.
2/ Press in and hold the ADJ button and continue to hold for many seconds!
3/ The left side LCD (ODM meter and trip meters) will change to show the inteval in miles. Reduce and Increase with the SET and ADJ buttons.
4/ Leave for a few seconds and the new value will be stored.
Hope this helps.

Start with the key off. Press and hold the SEL button. Turn the key on. Wait about 3 seconds for the Change Oil indicator to blink 3 times and turn off. Release the SEL button.

Re: OIL LIGHT ON

Supposedly the interval can be changed. Instructions in the Owner's Manual haven't worked for me so far.
