Re: OIL LIGHT ON
I don't know how the K3 works, but if the light is the change oil light, it will reset if you turn off the bike, press the select and reset buttons on the right side simultaneously, turn the ignition to on, and wait just a few seconds. It will reset itself and go out.
If instead its the check oil light, put the bike on the center stand, get down on your hands and knees and check the sight glass which is on the left side of the bike, below the floorboard. I need a flashlight to see this. If the sight glass is clear, the oil level is low and you shouldn't run it. If the sight glass is amber colored like motor oil, run the bike for a minute, then shut it off and give it a couple of minutes to drain. If the glass is still fully covered amber, you're over filled and some oil will have to come out. If the amber color is in the middle of the two marks on the sight glass, your level is OK. You could have an oil pump pressure issue, or you could have an oil pressure sensor issue. The former is bad. The latter isn't too bad. Either would need to be repaired.
