I have a VRSCAW 07, oil pressure light has been coming on randomly for a while now, only happens when motor has been running for 50km or more and motor is very hot, Had it checked out by Harley they did cold and hot pressure check and advised it was within factory specs' and they fitted new pressure switch and said not to worry about it, however light is still coming on, when light is on if I bring revs up to 100-200 rpm above idle the light will go out, I am not convinced that this is not a problem, has anyone else had this problem?

Welcome to the forum. I have not had that problem on my '04, but I'm sure someone will be along shortly to help you!

How did they diagnose this????
Pressure check?
Even if the pressure is OK, having a faulty engine safety indicator is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
Insist they find to root issue, wiring, bad pressure switch, BAD PUMP.
I would not run it until this is resolved!!

I recommend checking the bolt that connects to the water pump on the alternator side. There is a "How To" that Max did and it takes less than 20 minutes to check it during an oil change (the bolt is actually on the alternator side of the engine).
