  • Low Oil Pressure Indicator Blinking In Pulsar 200NS

    Hi all,
    I recently bought Pulsar 200NS but from the 2nd day onwards I can see that after riding a few kilometers the oil indicator starts blinking and won't stop until the ignition has been turned off. I took the bike to the service center they checked the oil level and coolant level and said everything seems to be fine and not to worry. Since its just a pressure indicator and sometimes the pressure might vary so nothing much to worry. Again after a few days I went back since I was facing the same problem and it seem to be that the engine gets heated up very soon say a ride of 2-3kms. This time they topped up the coolant and told me there was some loose connection and it would be fine. Yesterday again I took the bike back to them, they checked the fan if working or not and it was so they told me getting heated up is a normal thing and during the first service they will check the oil pressure thing if it continues to blink. Is it ok or am just being to curious.

      Get it checked asap. And immediately turn engine off if 'low oil pressure' light comes on.
      Few 220's had this issue, not any mechanical problem just some issue with sensors. And may be that's why svc guys are nah taking it seriously. But its better to be safe than sorry.

        Why is thread not merged with the ownership?

        Nevertheless, Oil Pressure Icon Blinking is a very known issue. The sensor is the culprit, and is being replaced as well, and it won't harm the bike in any way.

        BTW which SVC you went to? Almost all the SVC people are aware about the issue.

          Guys, i too have the same problem. And my bike engine gets heated if I drive in high traffic for some. I think my radiator fan is not working. I gave the bike to SVC guys. Waiting to get it back. Let me know if any other have this problem and what you did to solve this?

            If your bike is in run-in period, the engine will tend to heat up more. so dont worry.

              Yeah point taken. Hope after 1st service everything falls in place.

              Does the shifting also becomes a little stiff after riding few kilometers...

                Keeping the bike on stand, start the engine and keep it for few minutes.. do minor rev..... you can feel sound and hot air blowing...which means your radiator is working. When the engine temp raises above 88 deg the fan starts working

                  How did you come to conclusion that your radiator fan is not working and bike is getting over heated? Did the Engine Coolant Temperature icon blinked? Or did just felt the heat?

                  I don't think so the oil pressure icon will be solved at first service. Take it to Khivraj or Auto Service. But better to wait till the second service, when all issues will be sorted out. Gear shifts will also be very hard, it will bed in by 1000Kms. Don't worry, nothing is going to happen, just get the oil change in time.

                  200NS engine is relatively cooler and will not start even when you idle for a minute. And the engine temperature has to reach 98 and not 88 degrees to switch on the radiator fan.

                  To check if radiator fan is working, one has to ride aggressively in traffic under high ambient temperature, it's not that easy!

                    I am confused now. Whats the reason for the oil pressure issue vanishing after 2nd service? I tried last time and I kept the bike for 5mins and rev'ed it for sometime the fan started blowing air. Thanks for the 98 degree clarification.

                      I didn't mean that the issue will be sort out themselves. Just that by next 15 days or so, all SVC centres will know about the solution to the issue. Just that let the bike be atleast 2000Kms on odo, so that everything settles down. Start resolving the issues after then only.

                      To be sure check the OIL level in the OIL inspection window, with centre stand and the bike is off.

                        @Thread Starter: Were you riding on slightly wet roads when this happened? If yes, this is definitely a sensor malfunction and a common occurance on the P220 too. Definitelly not a serious issue.

                        BUT, if this is not the case, we might need to dig deeper for the solution.

                          It started from the 2nd day itself and after riding say 2kms the indicator would start blinking. If you switch off ignition and restart it would go but again start after few kms. From past few days its not popping up but the spanner indicator is constant. Time to go for 1st svc

                            I am from Chennai and its hot here. I drove it for 20min in high traffic. Within sometime(5 min), the engine become hot and the metal below the seat is too hot that I cannot sit in my seat comfortably. After reaching the place, before switching off the engine, I checked the radiator fan and its not working. And also while riding the low oil pressure indicator is also blinking. Its been more than 1 week now, the bike given to SVC and still It is not rectified ...so worried...

                              1st servicing done. The sensor problem still alive, really don't know what to do. Everyday day when I go to office or come back from office it starts blinking. I asked my younger who takes the bike to college he says he is not facing it. Yesterday I was at the pillion and he rode the bike no sign. Don't know whats going on. Also after riding for sometime rmp goes to 3 at idle even when shifting the rpm doesn't settle down immediately.
