Hello
My oil light on the 1984 Honda Shadow 500 VT was coming on and off last week.
This week I changed the oil and oil filter.
Took it for a run up the road and ther light is still coming on.
No I do not need oil put in the right amount and checked the dip stick.
What could be the problem.
What to check for.

Do you have the ability to hook an oil pressure gauge into this and actually measure what the pressure is - whether it's an actual problem or just the sender?

Hi Thanks all.
I did check the oil hot and cold while on the stand after oil and filter change.
Will put in a spare working sending unit, if no go will do a oil pressure test.
I gringe and taking engine out, and opening it up to get at the oil pump.
Can the oil sending unit hole be clogged??? will trying cleaning that also.
