Oil pressure gone up
Posted 11 June 2018 - 06:38 PM
Just had an oil change (Millers 20/50 Classic) & the oil pressure appears to have risen by around 5psi throughout the range. Not a huge increase I agree but when cold the pressure is up to about 90psi until things warm up & it comes down to around 75 when it used to be 70 @ about 3000 rpm. After several miles the tick over pressure is around 20 to 25 when it used to be 15 to 20 (as I said overall a 5psi increase). Question is should I adjust or leave well alone? Just a little concerned to see it so high @ start & possibly pushing out more oil from the rear oil seal than before!

I have much the same problem. I choose to take it easy until
the oil gets a bit warm. A bit frustrating, but I don't want to
mess about with the relief valve adjustment.

Chris is right.
I wouldnt worry, I just changed back to Castrol classic on my 5 this time and saw the oil at like 90 when I started her. Took her out for a thrash (after she had warmed) beating some life out of the oil and now pressure is not so high anymore. hahahah
