    I would definitely change the oil and make sure 10w-40 goes back in, with only 97 hours i highly doubt you have any serious engine problems

    But you can just hook up one temporarily and see if the pressure has dropped to unsafe level when your alarm goes off
    That sounds a little overboard? Am I reading that right? Do you check the oil pressure with a gauge 3 times every ride? Do you have the gauge permanently mounted in the glove box? Do you do this because you had an oil pump or oil related failure?

    I had a spare gauge so I installed it. Nice to know I have the good startup oil pressure. I know the warm idle pressure and I can see if someting is amis.
    I had a oil cooler failure early in it's life. (mfg defect, bad cooler)
    Before every days ride, I pull the seat, do a visual inspection, Check for anything out of place or leaking, Carbon ring look over, Coolant and oil level check, and hose check.
    Its an 04 with a lot of years on it, its meticulously taken care of, (Looks new inside and out)but every bit of precheck could prevent a stranding miles from home. I often go 50 mles on a ride.

    liability is the reason we don't have anything but " too little too late" warnings on PWC, aka "idiot lights". PWC Pilots need to keep such a close look at what's ahead that they don't dare do a scan of the instruments. Unlike airplanes which often have so many gauges for every little thing including fart gas temperatures....

    go figure
