So Friday I purchased my first Harley and first bike for that matter. I got a brand new 2014 883 superlow. Drove it quite a bit yesterday and really enjoying it. Only issue is took it out this morning and when I left the barbershop about a mile down the road the oil pressure indicator light came on. Checked the oil when I got home and everything looked fine. Called the dealership and they said to bring it in cause they think it might be a sensor issue. Has anyone had this problem? Also as I am a new rider at what RPM's are the shifting points or is that something I have to figure out on my own.

Your owner's manual will give you guidance with regard to shifting.

I wouldn't be driving it. If it's not the sending unit, it could a major problem. I'd have the dealer come & pick it up if you can't deliver it.

since my 2004 883 does not have a tach, I go to 25mph in 1st, 35 in 2nd, 50 in 3rd, up to 60 in 4th then shift to 5th. The bike does not seem to mind at all.
