    During the last ride of the season, on my 1998 FLHTCI, the needle on my dash mounted oil pressure gauge started jumping up and down and sometimes staying up towards 40 PSI or higher. The oil light did not come on at all. Being lazy, I put the bike away for the winter. Now that it's time to take it back out, I'm pretty sure it will be doing the same thing. Any ideas out there???

    Check the oil level and the wiring to the gauge as well as the ground. If all checks out , check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge.
    Last but not least suspect there's a problem with the pump.
