I had this happen on my F7 also. I think the oil is sloshing from one side of the tank to the other in the corners and the sensor for the low oil light comes on from the oil moving up and down in the tank.

Interesting topic. A few weeks ago I had gone over a snow bank and the sled tipped to the recoil side. Soon after as I was going down the trail I noticed the oil light coming on....blinking on an off sporadically. I rode about 5 miles to get to my brothers house. Seemed to get more frequent. When I got there I added oil, but I got a surprise. Filled up without hardly adding any. So that had me worried. Thought maybe it got an air pocket from tipping. So then I put a bit of oil in the tank just in case. At any rate the light never came on again that night and nothing bad happened. Guess the oil sensor is picky......hmmm.

It's a lot of topics regarding this enoying light.
And it seems to blink when the trail is bumpy after half a thank of gas.
When the light is constant the oil that is left should cover one thank of gas.
But i agree that it's enoying when it blinks so you don't have the time to see what light it is thats blinking... :angry:

My engine light started flashing on and off after about 50 miles on the sled. The trail had minimal snow. I pulled over and read the manual. It said this could be the heat exchangers are getting too hot due to lack of snow. I started again after about 10 min and never saw the light again. I due find a bit of loose snow to ride in when I can to cool off the heat exchangers. 200 miles now and no problems.

I've had my oil light flashing several times on multiple rides. I'm a quart low at the most and when I ride hard rough trails, it goes on and off often. Keeping the tank full remedies this.
