R1200 R 2006 Vinatge

Postby Mike D » Thu Feb 13, 2020 7:05 pm

Hi All

Anyone with an R1200R 2006 year care to enlighten me on whether the oil light flashes BEFORE the engine is started.

Maybe this post would fit better in the R1200 section

It was meant to be put in the 1200 section, but I was reading the article on the R1200 alternator, and thought 'oh I must post thatR1200R question' and did it without moving to the 1200 area.

Hi Mike,

My oil light does indeed flash before starting the engine. It goes out once the engine is running. Mine is a 2007 bike.

Hi Airhead.IRL,

Has it always worked that way?

I have the bike two years and it has always functioned that way. I had assumed that it's supposed to be that way. Once the oil level in the window is good then I'm a happy camper.
