Just want to say hi. Riding 2005 C50 out of Orlando, FL. Less than 200 miles - 20 days since purchase and oil warning light came on. Taking dealer 2 days to come pick up for diagnostic. Hope it works out, I like the bike but hate being stranded.

Welcome.

I'll ask the obvious, have you checked the oil level through the sight glass on the right side? Bike has to be level/upright for the sight glass to be effective. Have you heard the radiator cooling fan turn on and off while your riding or while stopped ? Do you have a warranty from the dealer for a your new to you, used bike? Thought I would ask some quick questions for you to consider before taking it in and paying for service.

What's the deal with the fan going on and off? I thought that was normal like a car. It would go on while I stop or riding real slow. Is this normal. I changed the oil.

If he were low on oil, the engine would get hot faster causing the fan to have to kick onn and off more than normal.
I think he was just low on oil... dangerously low.

by the way.....welcome from Indiana.
