Yes! Music to my ears! For a moment there, I really thought my oil pump is screwed. Thanks for checking!Thus, while your engine is idling, the engine doesn't need much oil pumped and you will see most of your oil in the oil pan. If you put your bike in gear so that the clutch is connected, your oil pump will then start pumping more oil as you gain speed.
As it turns out, to check whether the oil pump is working properly, all you need to do is look at the instrument cluster or meter unit/gauge. For as long as the "Oil Pressure Warning Indicator (red) Light" doesn't turn on while the engine is running, the oil pump is good -- meaning, regardless engine hot or cold, oil pressure is more than sufficient to circulate the oil into the engine's nooks and crannies. If the oil pressure is too low, the red light will stay lit (NOT GOOD!). However, if the oil pressure is too high, the "Oil Pressure Relief Valve" (another engine safety device thingy located inside the oil pan) will bring the oil pressure down to within specs. However ever, if the oil pressure is way way too high, the engine will explode -- just kidding, the oil will get past the oil seals and there will be oil all over the garage. SOOOo, it looks like everything looks good for me. hihi
p.s. Pare, pinoy ka din pala? What's your exact 10-20 good buddy? Nice to hear from another Kabayan!
