Low oil pressure

On all BMW motorcycle model engines from the /5 and forwards, low oil pressure might occur.  These are the testing and repair procedures.  All these years later, this is more likely to occur.

We rarely saw the low oil pressure light flash on.  The pan wasn’t baffled and a really good rider could use so much front brake that the oil would move forward for enough time that the sump didn’t pick up any oil and the light would come on.
