Oil Pressure Issue
The bike is a 2010 R1200GS.
Without a history of any issues, it suddenly has zero oil pressure on start up. This presented as a rattle on start-up, getting louder over the next 10 seconds. I connected an oil pressure gauge on and it shows zero.
There IS oil in the engine to the right level.
I removed the oil pressure relief-valve. The spring is is okay and the relief-valve piston moves freely on and off the seat.
Are there any known issues with this model regarding oil pressure? Does anyone have any ideas?
Some input from others may save me some time in fault finding.
