Yesterday I was out for a fabulous impromptu Fall ride and the dreaded red triangle appeared on my dash briefly then went off. No other messages came on. I stopped and checked the oil level and it was fine.
The bike was running great and I had no idea what the problem was. (I would have check the codes right then but forgot the service number.
(Later I remembered I had the numbers with me in my phone. doh!)
On the way home the warning appeared twice more for a second or two each time. When I got home I looked up the codes in the dash and DSB 08 was in memory. That's OIL PRESSURE ANOMOLY. I immediately thought about Peter's warning of the upper oil pan gasket.
I am planning to change the oil soon so decided to buy both oil pan gaskets (#s 01003650,05003630) and a new pressure switch for good measure.
I'm thinking ahead and am wondering what I else I should be looking and preparing for when I take the pan and spacer off? I'll check the oil pick-up screen too. Has anyone encountered this situation and discovered the upper pan gasket was OK? If the upper gasket is fine then what might have triggered the code? I forgot to mention the Low Oil Pressure light never came on.
Thanks in advance. I apologize if this has been asked and answered before.
