I am new to the world of motorcycles. I purchased my first bike 2 weeks ago- Honda rebel 500. When I brought it home I had a male friend come over and walk me through where to check my oil, fluids etc. When I brought the bike home I had proper oil levels looking through the view finder behind where you put the oil in it. That was on 7/13/17. I took short rides around town during the following week, did not notice any oil leaks or anything. On sunday, 7/23/27 I went for a 75 mile ride with some friends, had no problem with it. Monday evening I got on to take a spin around town, turned the ignition switch on, turned kill switch on then hit the start engine button. All lights came on like normal and went off except for the oil light. Put the bike in the upright position and there was no oil in it. Called dealership and had it towed there. Got a call back this morning that they took it off the truck and into the shop and no lights came on and the bike started without any problems. So i'm not sure how a bike can go from having 0 oil to having oil and running. Has anyone had any issues with this? Any thoughts? words of advice? I was told by the dealership that I just didn't know "how to start my bike." Any words of advice are appreciated! Thanks!
