Dropping a Vulcan 750 can also cause an air bubble in the oil pickup, and it can take some time to build oil pressure back up. That red light seems to stay on forever. I hate to think what might be happening during that time. The EX500 has the same issue, and some have seriously damaged their engines from dropping the bike. This seems to be a design issue with some Kawasaki's.
I would drain all the coolant out, and refill it. Fill it VERY slowly with the engine running. Also check the reservoir which is on the right side.
It's a good thing you didn't drop it on the left side, that usually breaks the shifting mechanism inside the engine.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
