2020 Ninja 1000SX oil light
on: 24 Jun 21, 04:45:28
Wondering if anyone has had the misfortune on this one.

Took the bike out today to scrub in new tyres.  Close to my returning home the oil light came on just before I got into my street, when dipping clutch.  Rev the bike or when its in motion and the light goes out and stays out.  I parked it up, left for a bit, then light stayed out.  However after 5 minutes ticking over, light on again, then started to flicker on and off, then just stayed on.  Soon as you put it under load with revs, light is out.

It will be getting recovered tomorrow morning by RAC and taken to Kirkcaldy Kawasaki.  Bikes been running fine, oil level appears fine.

Hopefully just a faulty pressure sensor. Better to be safe than sorry though!

Hi there don’t worry at all !!!! Did it happen after you went out in the rain or you washed it ?? I had 2018 SX with same fault but only after it rained heavily or I pressure washed it .. eventually it stayed on all the time so I had the pressure sensor changed under warranty!!! I’ve now had my 2020 ninja 1000 SX for 18 months and it’s doing exactly the same !!.. comes on intermittently after heavy rain or pressure wash !!! I could put money on it !!! It definitely is just a sensitive little pressure sensor !!! Doesn’t like getting wet !! Anyway Id get it checked out if you’re nervous…but mines been doing it for a few months now I’ve had it serviced in between and they found no faults with anything!!!???.. it was doing it before and still does it now!!! I check the oil and I don’t worry!!😁😁😁🤝🤝

Funnily enough, the bike hadn't been washed for a good few days, then it never happened till close to the end of my dry run.
Its with the dealer just now, so see what they come up with.

I am keeping my fingers crossed, but I suspect you may actually be right.

Got the bike back yesterday.  Apparently it was moisture in the pressure switch.  Dried out, some corrosion block applied and it was as good as gold.
While in the shop though, I feasted my eyes on Z H2, and managed to source one with a fantastic trade in.  Had no intentions of making the switch, but there you go.  Heavily discounted 2020 bike unregistered and an offer for mine I couldn't refuse.

Thanks for the input everyone.
