Food for thought! I think with the oil pressure being all over the board with the different engines, and different Prowlers it seems to me that my 2009 XTX 700 is showing different readings on the gage. 75 PSI on cold start, then drops to 25-30 at cruise rpm, and around 10PSI at idle. I think what we are seeing is head pressure going into the oil cooler, and as the oil thins out due to heating up the head pressure drops. My spec's are for 10-12 PSI at 2,500 RPM on the upper fitting/port. When the oil is fully warmed up, I suspect the supply, and return lines for the oil cooler are equalized, I'm thinking all prowlers are running basically the same pressure, If you are running a cooler, and your Oil Pressure stays high, I would highly recommend cleaning the cooler, and check for oil flow to the top end. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks RD
