Default Will the D675 not start if it is low on oil?

I haven't had the chance to look closely yet. I'll post a video later.
  • When trying to start...
  • Oil light on. Check engine light is on.
  • It turns over once. Does not start.
  • Check engine goes off, oil stays on, temp light goes on then off.

I'm not much familiar with newer bikes, hell i was confused when the bike would shut off when i threw the kick stand down haha. Use to my old 1980...

My question is, is it a safety precaution built in, if it is low on oil, or needs an oil change, to not start?

I'll do some checks when I get home tonight.

Thanks D675 community!

What year is the bike? and have you had the R/R recall done? and what was the oil level like? Depending on your year it was shown that the 1st gens came with a longer dipstick which would equate to less oil compared to the later gens which came with shorter dipsticks. Hope that made sense.

I took my bike in to the dealer for the R/R recall and they told me my oil wasn't even reading on the Dip Stick. I have an 06' and it still ran.

It is a 2008, and no I have not (as far as I know). I don't know how to go about it. Bought the bike in April of this year.

I also had a dead battery issue maybe 3-4 months back. Replaced it with a new light weight 1 and ran perfectly until today.

Well the dealer is replacing them at no cost so you should definitely check it out if you have not done so. Most of the time its the R/R, but it could also be the stator as well. Here are some threads you should check out when you evaluate your bike:

Sigh... this is why I bought a new bike. So I would feel confident it would start each morning.

I have noticed the gauge lights having a light flicker, from what I remember reading this accompanies the R/R issues?

Nearest dealer is about 1.5 hours away. Fantastic.

Wonder if I just mail the unit to them, if they'll change out the wiring...

I have had the exact same problem when the battery is low on voltage. Charge the battery with a trickle charger and try again maybe? It scares me a bit but I cannot even boost my bike off a car if the battery dies...I must use the trickle charger. These ecus/fuel systems are super picky.

If you dont want to go to the dealer you can always order one from Ridersdiscount, I purchased mine before the recall. My battery kept dying and I went through 2 batteries before I figured it was the R/R. You could try and ask the dealer for any options. But read over the threads and check all the obvious things before you got with the R/R, stator, etc. Very easy to switch out, takes 15-20 minutes even if your not mechanically inclined.
