Call me a wuss by all means... But look at this first:

http://www.myweather2.com/Motor-Raci...it.aspx?sday=1

100% cloud all day
16-23 mph wind
Rain clouds all day

Weather was crap but got through the morning at least. Looking forward to the race, just hope it's dry!

Hope the afternoon was ok for Phil and Bradders who dragged the elements

wasnt too bad a day after all, although running a fox over at 0425, nearly running out of fuel as the local station wouldnt take my fuel card, narrow escape at ahem speed joining M3 as plod clearly on overtime joined behind...and nicked the geezer behind! No garage space, pi$$ing with rain, total w4anker of a noise tester - 7k revs, 103.7?! ****! Oil light flicking on lightly then coming on flat out down bentley straight, sitting in an hours traffic within 5 miles of circuit on that bloomin road!!

but actually was a good day bike felt ace, reckon I went far quicker limping round in track mode than race mode last year (same conditions), and first time ever enjoyed riding in the wet

apologies to the guy who came over to say hi - I probably came across as pretty rude but we were on our way somewhere and as much as I love to stad and chat (ask anyone!) I dont when its peeing down and outside and I'm wet

Well I mananed a lap and a half. Something seriously wrong with my bike after the crash at brands, but there is nothing obvious. So 3 hours drive there 4 1/2 back, 3/4 of tank of fuel, 90 trackday, arse of a noise tester 103.7!!!

What a good day

At least i have found out now and not on test day before race.

Probably/more than likely a duff switch, change it or put a direct feed gauge in place of the switch to read the pressure directly.

wondered if it was because its wet. Light was on very faintly until last session when flat out it came ping on. Bike seems to run ok, and oil level fine

Whats a direct feed, where do I get one and how do I chnage it?!

Just a union to screw in, in place of the pressure switch, which has a pipe connected to a guage. Most sevice garages or handy mechanic should have one. I have one here, but I'm not very handy, geographically speaking.
