I finally got around to replacing the broken oil sensor on my 84 VT700. What a complete PIA!!!! Question: Now when I turn the key on my oil light comes on and stays on until the bike is cranked up and running. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

Thanks much. I sure hope I never have to replace that sensor again but it sure is nice knowing that all is working as designed.

If your bike is not running, the oil pump is not pumping, therefore no oil pressure, as a result the oil light comes on as it is supposed to. Turn the key on your cage and watch the oil light. It will stay on 'till you start the engine.
