Oil pressure is low. Stop riding till you find out why. Could be the wrong viscosity oil. Could be a failure in the system.

Stop riding until you find out why.

Sorry dude. Oil light is one of the major lights you never ignore. Only time you should ever see it is when turning on the bike or after an oil change.

Dunno where you go from here. Prolly engine shopping on eBay
