I finally have some good news! I finally received the seals on Friday. On Saturday installed the new seals. I filled the oil filter with oil and every other channel and pipe. When I first cranked it over the oil light did not go off. I thought **** still nothing. Then I applied a tip I read about where they mention you must "burp" the oil system. I loosened the oil filter a bit and cranked over the engine. At first nothing and then the oil started pissing out. I nipped it up quickly and then cranked over again. The oil light went off in two seconds. I was so relieved it was finally sorted.

To conclude. It was the oil pan o-ring seals after all that was causing the oil pressure loss as I thought from the beginning. It can clearly be seen in the pictures. The bike goes like a dream now.


Thanks to everyone for all the advice. Much appreciated.

Shaun thanks for the reference pictures and the update saying you've sorted it out. This is why this forum is so useful. I may well be back in this thread someday when I can't figure out why my bike doesn't have oil pressure.

I had the same problem. Checked everything. Took engine apart to check pump. Everything was perfect. The pump won't prime sometimes after an oil change so you have to push the oil up to the pump. Connect an air hose to the crank case vent and give it pressure while cranking. The pump will prime immediately.
