    Keep reading about oil pressure at idle around 10-15 pounds, mine runs 24 at warm idle, should I be concerned? Highway speed averaging 42-46. 2007 Road King, 96 cube, 38,000 miles, tru duals w/stage 1 and Screaming Eagle EFI Race Tuner Kit

    What kind of gauge and where is your reading taken from? If this is a stock H D gauge you may check pressure with a master gauge, H D gauges are not very accurate IMO

    That is GREAT oil pressure and DD is as good as it gets, I would not worry with pressure like that

    Twin Cam Engines

    Cold engine start-up : 44-50 psi

    Warm engine at 2000 rpm and up : 30-38 psi

    Warm engine at idle : at least 10 psi
    I suspect your DD gauge is VERY sensitive and accurate:s
