    Hello! I just bought a 1997 bird. First of all bike has no history data, it has been driven ~53 000km (I don't believe that). It is already modified, for example it has kawasaki zx10r tail. Now I have one problem, when the bike is idling, oil pressure light is blinking slightly. Bike is idling around 1000 to 1100rpm. When raising rpm little, light doesn't light up anymore. Previous owner said that he changed engine oil 1000km ago, and I did check oil level and it was ok and oil was bright. Idling is also little wavy.

    What to check first? Carb sync upcoming days ofcourse, but that does not remove oil light problem

    Is this even right place for this kind of a question, if not can you please guide me to the right place

    And I am sorry for my bad english, I'm from Finland. I hope I'm not sounding like Yoda from star wars

    welcome to the bb family, well to start just make sure your idle stays at 1100 rpm that's normal but if you have 4 to 1 then I would go up to 1200 that's how I got mine set. unless you have a pc2 or 3.

    You can also tap off the oil pressure light with a T and install a guage to check you pressure.
    From the factory manual
    Oi l pressure at oil pressure switch
    490 kPa (5.0 kgf/cm 2 r 7 1 psi) at
    5,400 rpm / (176 °F/80 °C)
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    Welcome to the flock TonyXX.
    As noted already the idle is too low at present, 1125 is 'standard' but most riders up it a bit to avoid clutch rattle on start up.
    Personally I would check the oil pressure as suggested by beestoys, that should give you peace of mind.
    Full of Hot air? Intercool yourself............ you know it makes sense
