    Oil Level

    Is there a trick to getting the Oil display to work? Manual says that it will show if the oil level is OK as long as:

    • Bike is at operating temp
    • Side-stand is up
    • Bike has idled for at least 10 seconds


    I went for a ride this morning and checked at every stop light it always shows "_ _ _"

    Oil level indicator

    The oil level display 1 provides
    information on the oil level in the
    engine. This display can only
    be activated when the vehicle is
    stopped.

    The conditions required for using
    the oil level display are as follows:

    - Engine at normal operating temperature.
    - Engine idling for at least ten seconds.
    - Side stand retracted.

    Displays
    Maxi-Scooter is positioned vertically.
    The displays which may appear
    in positions 1 and 2 mean the
    following:
    OIL OK: oil level correct.
    OIL CHECK: check oil level during
    next refueling stop.
    OIL ---: no measurement possible
    (above-mentioned conditions
    not met).

    I read that section, but I am not getting a display. I've been stopped at several red lights for well over 10 seconds and no display. I've also sat on bike in garage after a ride and waited while idling - no luck.

    It's not that big of a deal, but it is a hassle to check the oil with the stick. The bike has a few months warranty left - I suppose I could have the dealer look at it.

    Maybe your oil level sensor is not working properly. My display shows 'oil level ok' almost as soon as I stop.
