First off...


Second, the oil light...more than likely, it doesn't have anything to do with flow. It is a oil pressure sensor.

I bet if you could find a service manual you could test the sensor with a multi-meter.

secondly, are you sure you checked the oil sensor? there are a few sensors on the engines for these bikes, you may have accidentally looked at the neutral sensor, and thought it was the oil pressure sensor.
what I would suggest, is take the oil pressure sensor out, clean what dirt you see off it, and you may have it done.

now a low oil pressure causing the oil pressure light to stay on because of a pressure relief valve being stuck open or partially open is a possibility. why it'd be in such condition I dont know though.

And you are dealing with 2 sperate things but 1 problem. If the pressure relief vlv is stuck open causing you to have low oil pressure and the light to come on. Then your problem is the vlv not the sensor.
