So I began using my bike at hight traffic (not that I really wanted to) and obviously engine temperature rises up and fan starts working... but lately during this I got some blinking from the oil pressure light and even sometimes the bike shuts down. This only happens at iddle, never does it while running.

I did some testing and noticed that the iddle is quite low. Actually the oil light only appears at iddle and when I accellerate just a little bit it goes away.

Last oil change was like 6 months ago, I'm using fully synth Liqui Moly 10-60 (I think that 10-40 is the one recommended). been Reading a lot and some people solve this by changing oil or "burping" the oil filter.

Need help! Thanks!

Small Black knob on a cable hangs down on the left side of the bike, under the frame rail should be clipped to the coolant line

idle speed should be about 1300rpm, or just slightly higher if need be

Finally I turned the idle speed up to 1300-1500rpm and never got to see that light again. Note that before this I had it under 1000rpm.

Also engine temperature is working lower than before. I guess because of the idle... the water pump wasn't working properly.

Thanks!
