Oil light and red warning light flashing after oil change
Just got my 07 zx6r last week on Sunday, and the oil wasn't completely dirty but I wanted to do an oil change so I could have a starting point and keep track of the maintenance. Anyway,Iasked the dealership near me what oil they recommended and I used Kawasaki 20W-50. I drained the oil, changed the filter and put in about gallon of the oil. Started the bike and let it run for a few mins, then went for like an 8 mile ride. Now, when I turn the key on, the oil indicator and red light flash, but when I start the bike they shut off. then once I cut the engine off, they flash again. Before the oil change, the oil light and red light would flash for a couple seconds when the bike was turned on, then turn off. Now they just stay on unless the engine is running. I have tried " burping" the filter by unscrewing and screwing back, leaning the bike over as far as I could each side. in the sight glass, it appears there is enough oil ( between the lines) then I start the bike and it's way above the line. what should I do? any advice or input is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
