Bearcat 3000 shuts down while riding?

This article's title is, -Bearcat 3000 shuts down while riding.
I just drove on the frozen lake 50 km / h, 35miles, bearctin engine died during a ride?
The oil light flickered on in the instrument cluster, but the motor still left to go without any problems?
Why does the engine died during a ride?
Appear to be the same problem as the initiator of this topic as Karen?

Is the oil level low?

If the light was flickering at idle, once you get parts moving fast you will have less oil sitting in the pan and it might trigger the low oil shut off.

Add oil and try again....

one possibility, happened few years ago on my T660, oil light, flickered, then on, shut down engine. Dealer could not find problem, even changed the oil pressure sensor (good dealer- did not have part, but took part out of new sled on his floor). Even then the problem repeated on last ride of the season, returned to dealer. After a lot of time on his mechanics part, found the problem--- the wire from oil pressure sensor/sending unit passed through a "holder" that had a rubber gromment missing and wore through the insulation on the wire and then touched the metal and grounded out. Fixed, problem was gone for good. again, a remote possibility, different models and all. goodluck
