      Am I right in thinking the GV650 (carb model), is not fitted with an oil pressure warning light ?

      You are correct, it is usually a custom mod thing,

      The gv650 read the temps of the radiator and displays it on the dash
      the absense of an oil cooler (like the SV) probably means it probably wasn’t intended to have extra sensors for oil related functions of the gv bikes

      I couldn’t have imagined Hyosung spending extra R&D to do a oil pressure related work & display it on the dash ,  maybe not readings as in bars or numbers ,  probably they could have just used a car’s  oil lamp that flashes in some sequences   (some bikes do this)   fast sequences (blink) probably means oil pump issue , slow blink maybe pressure to low etc .
      Peharps more likely to have appeared on the EFI bikes as ECU will have a field day with all sorts of sensors attached to bike.

      Carby life meant the bike just needs CDI, Coils, Carb,  Coolant Switch & Temp controlled fan for the radiators. Less R&D time by their hands i guess.

      Dont think it would have taken a lot of R&D to fit a oil pressure warning light. About 5 mins at a guess, especially as the cluster has the light already fitted.

      The aftermarket route was just to fabricate some mini STAGE6 cluster and  read the custom fitted sensor near the bottom engine casing.

      The 250rs have oil coolers and since the dash is off a 650. It has the TEMP bars switched off on carby models (650 has a water radiator but what gives? Lol)

      The EFI 250 came later with a new display off the efi 650s , but modified to turn OFF the temp display….. despite the sensor is clearly visible on the motor block (aka. ET Sensor) they could have just made the extra R&D for dash to display the oil or engine temp anyway or check pressure flow as you mentioned about GV

      Its a mess lol,  ive read the GV service books. Only says use a hand held gauge to read preasure when servicing thats it.
