    Oil light and buzzer on FZR....?

    I don't have the manual on a trip I am currently on, and limited access to internet/Greenhulk here in the middle of the desert in Mexico....

    I changed out the oil just prior to the ride due to precautionary GIO issues and we were doing some pretty hard runs CC runs around a very small island, maybe 70 ft by 70 ft. Then went straight into a long straight WOT run....then the buzzer and oil indicator went on. I turned the engine off, sat there for a couple of minutes, started it up and all was fine after that.
    Oil level is a hair above midline, so that looks okay. Yes, the cap is on and the dipstick is in.

    My question is...
    When the buzzer/light comes on notifying you that there is an oil "issue", what does this mean? Low on oil? overheated oil? Pressure?

    Thanks guys.

    It may be that with the oil being just a tad low on the dip stick and you were doing a lot of agressive turning constantly the oil level sensor became un covered long enough for the sensor to signal a low fluid level. I would set the oil lever to full on the dip stick and see what happens if it goes off again. Tommy Jordan

    I was hoping for something like that.
