    I think when you changed the oil it caused an air bubble in the oil line or rail , for a second it had no oil press because of the bubble.

      Does it stay light after the bike starts? It is normal for it to come on when you turn the ignition to "on" but it should go out a second or two after you start the bike. It can take a couple of seconds longer to go out after an oil change but it should still go out relatively quickly once the engine is started.

      I would check the pressure sensor (underneath the ignition rotor); something could have happened when you were rotating the engine during the valve adjustment. Make sure the wired connection is tight.
