Question about Motorcycles
How long has it been since it was changed? Was the light on before you changed the oit? When you changed the oil did you change the filter if there is one? If you changed both you may have a problem with your oil pump or it may be as simple as to disconnect the battery(at least 1 minute) and then see if it goes off.This will reset the brain (Computer chip) By all means if none of these things work take it to a dealership.

There are also 2 separate drains/fillers one for the transmission and the othe for the crankcase . The measure is 620 ml per side, although some guys run up to 700 ml on the transmission. 10W-40 is the correct weight for the engine side. On the trans side a Transmission specific oil in an 80W or 85W grade. Maxima Extra full synthetic is the best oil you can buy for the engine. Maxima MTL is the best for transmissions.

Always check for the oil level before you start for the first time during the day. If you can just shake the bike you'll know how thick or light the oil is. The more lighter, you'll have to change faster. Also check for color. Oil can be maroon/red/dark green/etc. depending on brand. If its really black, change it fast. Dont do top ups. Better drain the entire oil and fill fresh oil.
The oil also acts as a lubricant to the gearbox. If you feel gear shifting is becoming too slippery or too tough, check for the viscousity, as said earlier. Slipping gear shift can also be due to a loose chain. So check for that too.
By the time you finish 1500 kms or 2000kms, its better to change the oil.
It is better to use Castrol Power1 for Pulsar. It prevents overheating and also keeps the engine and gearbox smooth. It also maintains viscousity at high temperatures for better lubrication.
I used to put servo and every 900-1000 kms i had to change oil. Now with Castrol, I change only between 1500-2000kms. I'm getting mileage between 50 and 55kms for a litre of unleaded petrol.
Hope this helps in solving your problem.
Have a nice time riding pulsar.
Always wear helmet and drive safely.

levibit is causing confusion by talking about the oil filter. Tranny oil is separate from engine oil on this bike. Changing engine oil and engine oil filter is a different procedure altogether. You have found the filler cap for the tranny and it has no dipstick on it. It has an oil level check bolt on the side cover as fido stated. The tiny check bolt hole often gets an air bubble trapped in it and fails to flow until you have grossly overfilled. This can be remedied by poking a paper clip or wire into the hole.

Generally any big bike can hold up to 3.5L oil with filter change.
Rule of thumb when changing oil and filter is to fill the crankcase with about 2.5 - 3L oil and check dipstick on oil filler neck for indicator as it's normally marked high and low (max or min oil) that cn be in crankcase.
If good enough and answer your question just give a 4 thumbs up. Thanks
