Blinker problem

When I push the switch for the blinkers, the light on my cluster does not blink. The light just stays on all the time. Anyone know what that could be?
ALSo... I've been catching the "oil can" warning light come on once in a while. Any idea what that could be? Maybe just vibrations? Idk... Just did a service a couple days ago

The signal light on all the time means the signals are not wired correctly (could be front or rear) or one bulb is burned out.

The oil light is not good. Check oil level (i.e., not on any stand)

Thanks for the advice, I'm going to check out the wiring

Front and back blink together. I'm guessing someone mixed up the hot and ground wires

RF/RR are supposed to blink together.
LF/LR are supposed to blink together.

When you did the service, how much oil did you put in? Did you check the oil level with the bike on a swing arm stand?

Oil warning light means NO OIL PRESSURE if the system is working correctly.

Don't run the engine any more than necessary to see the light go out -or ride till you have figured out what it is.
