Arrow Need some repair help.

I lowsided this morning at about 35.:BangHead: Of course the cager that cut me off didn't stop. It was my first time to go down in 3 years and 12000 miles of riding. I'm fine (was wearing gear) and there is minimal damage to the bike due to the framesliders doing their job. I need a stator cover, shifter and new sliders. After I collected my thoughts I started the bike and was going to ride it the rest of the way to work but after about 10 seconds the oil light would not turn off so i shut it off. So I let it sit a while and tried it again and the same thing. Is there something I need to check or reset after a crash?

If I see an oil light on (potentially indicating no oil pressure) in any vehicle (car or bike), I would shut it off and not turn it back on until I was certain I was getting oil to the top end components.

Likely it is the tip switch on your bike, and it can be reset.

Nothing leaked out but I did check the glass with it shut off and there is the correct amount of oil in it. I did not check to see if it was washing around though. How do I reset the tip switch and why do you think that is the problem? Is the light just an indicator that there was a problem? Like a tip over?

Some of them reset themselves.

I seriously doubt that you broke anything serious with a slow low-side, but you never know. Take your time, check everything well. Start with the most basic things and work your way to the more difficult.

With the light, sometimes you can unhook the battery for 20 mins or so and it re-sets everything if nothing is wrong. I would try that first after looking to see if oil is circulating or not.

I really don't think that I broke anythng serious either because I've seen bikes roll 4 times and go end over end and start right back up. I just didn't want to take any chances.

Thanks for the help.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Got the bike home on later that day and she started up as normal. Oil light turned off like it should and rode it around for about 30 mins everything worked great. I guess the bike just needed time to reset itself.

Something to keep in mind is if the stator cover is dented in at all it could be contacting the alternator. If it is that can put a lot of metal where it shouldn't be.
It would be a good idea to pull it and check that out, even if the cover is not cracked.
