    anyone have a shovel, i'm wondering what is the average oil pressure at idle around 850 to 900 rpm
    i had 20/ 50 non synthetic oil with 85degrees temp and bike was steady 20 psi.all of a sudden oil pressure dropped to 10 psi.i checked oil tank, oil line to pump.changed oil filter put in straight 60 wt.oil.
    is 10 pounds of oil pressure ok at idle i'm a new member. thank you in advance

    10 LBS is more than enough. Some bikes in hotter weather barely move the oil pressure gauge.
