Did Something Stupid - Oil Light ON?

Hi. This is my first post and it's embarrassing (as is my username which I would love to change!)

My Rebel 500 ABS was delivered Thursday. I'm sure others have done this but it wasn't even 2 days of ownership and I got off the bike in my garage without putting the kickstand down. I have crash bars but haven't installed them yet. It went down slowly on carpet so the only damage is to the clutch lever which is now bent. However, now the oil light is on when I start the bike and turn on the motor. Does this have anything to do with the clutch issue? It's going back to the dealer tomorrow because it was delivered with some damage but I wanted to get a heads up as to what this may be.

I doubt a bent clutch lever would have anything to do with the oil light being on.

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.

Me neither. Just grasping here. The bike has 10 miles on it.

Is the oil level visible in the window?

Also some people don't what the lights are on the speedometer....the ABS light comes on at engine start and stays on till you start moving.

Yes when I stand the bike up straight there is plenty of oil. I do understand the ABS light goes on and comes off. However the oil light isn't shutting off.

It might stay on after righting it after the drop before the oil settles maybe. But it should then have cleared.
BTW, most of us have had our bikes on their side by mistake at one time or another. Hope it is sorted soon.

Oil light shut off! Looks like it corrected itself. Thanks for your help.

Crash bars tomorrow...

I tipped mine over a couple months ago, clutch lever bent about half as much as yours, had some gas and oil leak out while I got up off the ground, no oil light problem, but then again I rode mine home from the accident.
The "missing" oil might have simply been caught in an interior pocket then later drained back down allowing the light to go off.
Just glad a member is ok.

I just bought the GIVI engine guard. 25mm (1 inch) not too big.....I dropped mine in the garage too.....exhaust caught the brunt of it.
