Zx6r j2

Howdy all, new to this forum! Unfortunately i crashed a few days ago and ripped open my stator cover causing my newly changed engine oil to spew out everywhere. In the process of replacing the cover the final bolt snapped even whilst using a torque wrench. I thought i'd test my luck and start her up, now the oil light stays on which i can only assume is because the cover is now not fully tightened up. There is also a new knocking sound which can be heard in the following linked video. What could be the source of the knocking, is it due to the lack of oil pressure or possibly damage done whilst crashing?

Thanks for any help,

While​ the bike is running, lossen the oil filter until oil spews out and then retighten, that should restore oil pressure.
