Engine dies when put into gear (Was oil indicator)
Just finished a routine oil/filter change on my 2009 DL650; Suzuki filter & synthetic oil. Started the bike and let it run for a minute to fill the filter; oil level is just below the Full line. I went to take it for a ride, it starts right up, but when I put it in gear it shuts off (the kickstand is up). The red indicator light on the dash is on, as well as the oil icon right above it. Rechecked the oil level: ok, started the bike and let it warm up a bit longer, but as soon as the transmission leaves neutral the engine stops. It acts just like shifting into gear with the side stand down, but it is up. Any ideas????
