To be honest it would be as cheap to buy a new back case as they aren't that expensive,however the front cover is round the £100 inc VAT mark.
My plan is to make my own from billet but i need to talk to someone who can tell me how to make it 
better.There's end float there on the feed side,hence the marks on the crank case i think. 
You can't go mad as it starts to rob horse power and then blows seals out either that or replace the whole unit every so many thousand miles,but i would rather be finding a solution than put on a plaster,if you know what i mean.
I used to be uncertain , but now i'm not sure anymore

Wonder if you could remove it and fit an electric pump?

Tried Lewis' suggestion of removing the switch and allowing it to bleed a bit before replacing it, I thought it had sorted it as it got to 68 degrees still no light, 75 still no light, 80 still nothing.. 85... 86...87 oh happy days ................ 88 degrees... Ping ... light on!
Just ordered a new switch and a filter from Griff, gonna replace the switch first then try it, then if that don't cure it swap the filter as well and try it again, if that don't do it I'll get serious with it and give it a good talking to.....

This had crossed my mind too hemi.There must be someone in the racing community who has found this problem apart from Micha.
Frank Wrathal maybe.

New switch fitted, seems to be sorted. Let it get hot enough to trigger the fans (91 degrees) a couple of times and no light. Still think I want a pressure test just to be absolutely sure.
Thanks for advice all.

My 2001 hasnt got an oil problem, it has the longer filter fitted, i have read that the longer filter doesnt have an oil bypass switch where as the short one does !

Which is better ? short or long ?

short


long



the difference between the filters



exploded diagram



Many incedents of the oil leaking back through the oil pump could this be a problem ? causing low pressure and lots of noise on start up ?
Gen2 bikes with the weaker crank which ran closer tolerance bearing s (0.15 instead of 0.25) were often supplied with either the long or the short....

What a lowlife company K&N are, they sell faulty filters for the RSV gen 1 and 2 , and if you fit K&N faulty chinese made filters it your fault.

The problem.



the failure



your filter fell apart ! k&n blame you. k&n did eventually support their product and paid for a rebuild. I dont think this would happen in england where anything goes....

NEVER USE K&N , Cheap chinese crap with no quality or back up. And the OE Aprilia part is half the price ! Watch the video of the track blow up of the k&n oil filter !

I'm planning to replace the K&N air filters on my Tuono and Honda CB1300 with OEM or Hiflo.
Been hearing for a while some doubts as the the level of filtration from their air filters.
Been using K&N oil filters on the 13 for years, but after reading this will replace with OEM or Hiflo again.

If you are running them inside an airbox and the airbox is clean inside then you know they are filtering.

I struggle to see why the most important filter on a bike wouldn't be OEM every time really. For the sake of a couple of quid?

I think the air filters are fine, or Green which I have in mine atm.

If you are running them inside an airbox and the airbox is clean inside then you know they are filtering.

Or, on the other hand, the dirt has gone through the combustion chamber.
We're talking filtration down to the 5-25 micron level here.

Yes, I agree and there would certainly be signs of it inside the airbox if it were getting through the filter. Mine is absolutely spotless inside.
