I prefilled the filter. I removed the filter and put it on again. Started the bike and the oil light went off. When I last changed the oil I used a Kawasaki filter and had no problem. But, I had a problem with the Kawasaki filter on my Ninja 500. I have always prefilled the filter in my cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Only motorcycles have exhibited this problem.
Rereading your post I think I inadvertently did what you suggested and the problem was resolved. Thanks!
