Oil Change Weird/Normal

Just did first oil change. Weighed oil to make sure refilled to same level.

Oil looks a little high in glass but same as before.

Now I have a red oil light on the dash and when I give full revs in neutral the motor revs hard. But If i give slow rev the motor spins up a little then seems to cut power, a little valve near the radiator ( shown in top right of pic) turns and a little blip of oil comes out from the two pipes at the bottom left of the pic exiting the silver exhaust cover.

When I rev hard this valve doesn't turn?

Pics show valve and two pipes which exit silver cover bottom left of pic

Any ideas? Help welcomed.

Pictures are fuzzy, but the oil light appears to just be the oil service warning light, page 224 of your owner's manual should be what you're looking for. That freaked me out when it popped up on mine.

The valve in the picture is the exhaust valve servo motor, probably wont move much under light throttle.
Thanks from Samba636

Thanks for reply.

Figured out the light, why they do that they trying to freak people into taking bike to dealership?

Weird how the oil dripped out the tubes which leave underneath the bike from the silver exhaust cover.

Not sure why they did that, the last generation had a light that said "oil service" so it was a little more self explanatory. Might want to look into that oil leak further, it shouldn't be leaking from anywhere.

True, those hoses have a purpose? Was weird how it blipped a couple of drops. If it's design that would end up under he rear wheel.

Those two black hoses have the steel exhaust valve servo cables inside them, no oil, so there shouldn't be any oil coming out of them. Is it possible that when you pulled the oil drain plug some oil got up in there?

That would be a smart guess, I dont think so, will check tomorrow and keep an eye.

If the hoses go through exit straight through the silver fairng though Its coming form them

There's no way for oil to get into those two cables as they aren't connected to the motor as they have steel cables similar to a throttle cable inside them, so my guess would be some oil got on them when the drain plug was removed.

The smaller hose that connects to the fairing is the coolant overflow, and the larger connects to the airbox. If you overfilled the oil its possible that it was forced into the airbox and would therefore leak from the larger hose in the fairing.
