I don't know that you can. I remember hear lots of griping about that when MoCo made the change.

As I understand it, the initial readout was the actual PSI, which resulted in an influx of owners in the service department who thought their oil pressure was "low". Changing it to a good/bad readout was the adjustment. I've not heard of anyone being able to switch it back.

It would read lower at idle as it should. I have been "told" the only way to do it would be with a replacement sensor installed in the engine. I hope that is not correct as it should read the psi.

Well interestingly, one of the actual GTS manuals for '19 has the actual oil pressure reading indicated in the diagram instead of "OK". However in subsequent versions of the manual online, it just shows "OK" in that same diagram.

I talked with HD and was told that there will be a sensor kit coming out - but I havent seen nor heard anything more. I havent had the time to call HD and ask again, so if someone is inclined, let us all know

I am not concerned so much with what the oil pressure reading 'normally' indicates - ie: if it is 37, 31, 28, 25 psi or whatever at a given RPM, but I do care about any significant change from what it normally should be. Thats what I want to monitor. I added an oil pressure gauge to a TC88 and on hot days at idle at red light it would read just about zero, but I knew that was normal and didnt freak out about it. Bike now has 80K miles and going strong

I could be wrong, but I don't think the Distance Till Empty shows up in the Engine Info pages either. At least I've never noticed it.
