Oil Pressure Indication

Last week I did the 6000 mile scheduled oil change, and out of habit watched the instrument panel when I started it to watch for a Low Oil Pressure warning to go out. To my surprise, there didn't seem to be one. Even the Rider's Manual doesn't make any mention of it. My RT has that feature. Am I missing something?

To be clear, I'm talking about oil pressure, not oil level.

My 2012 doesn't have an oil pressure gauge. I don't know about the newer models.

Here's a very short thread from 2013 I have never seen an indicator light on the dash and like you, didn't find one mentioned in the owners manual. At one time I thought of adding an oil pressure and oil temp gauge but decided I didn't need the added stress in my life watching those gauges too.

Never gave it much thought....Coming from bikes that only had an idiot light for oil pressure, I guess I assumed it was part of the Oil Level indicator on this bike... Meaning that it sensed the pressure in combination with the level....'OK' meant all is well...oops

I'm an idiot

I honestly try to not ride faster than my guardian angel can fly , however....I know it's pooped by end of the ride

I'm pretty sure that if the bike senses that as an issue it will drop to limp mode

You may very well be correct. However, with a loss of oil pressure, it would be a short distance limp.
