Engine Shuts Off...Oil Pressure Problem?
Hey guys....Im new to the site and totally new to motorcycles. I just bought my 1999 Gixxer 600 a couple weeks ago. Havent done too much riding on it. But sometimes when I go to start it, it starts but dies on me and shuts off after a few seconds. Then the oil light starts flashing. Then other times I'll start it up and ride around on it in first gear and it seems totally fine.
Then today I got on it rode it for a bit it was fine. Turned it off, went to start it again, shut off on me. Now it wont start. Goes to turn over but does nothing. I just checked the oil levels in it, seems like it has too much oil in it. If I drain the oil and put new in up to the required amount....should this fix the problem? Is there anything else I should look into?
