Oil Pressure

I am wondering what everyone's pressure is when their bike is hot. Mine at idle seems really low about 5 psi. Is this normal and something I should worry about. Oil level is fine too.

Perfectly normal, if your idle is set below 1000rpm you may even get a flickering oil light once in awhile. As long as it runs up in the 30+ range at highway speeds you're fine.

The Softails and Dynas have alot fewer oil pressure complaints, because they don't have a guage................

can't tell what yr your ride is, but 5-7 at idle is normal if you don't have a highflow oil pump. Which runs @26 idle & 60 at a gallup

I have a 09. I do not get a oil light. And you are right my dyna did not have one so I never worried about it.

My oil pressure runs about 15 at hot idle. 34 at speed. I had a new oil pump put in when I did the cams.
