Check with your dealer, but I believe on that enginee, the oil pump has a nylon drive gear. THis gear has been shreding on that modle from 1988 to 1999. It Happed to me. I called customer service at Kawasaki, and after some haggling, they assumed all the costs to fix the bike.I have a 1997 1500 A modle Vulcan.
Good Luck

Use a cheap mechanical pressure gauge to test. If no pressure, did you prime the oil pump before starting engine? Also, what are you working on?

Red light

if the oil light is staying on it could be one of many things ,it could be a very cheap oil presure switch or something very expensive if it is an oil pump failure.start with doing an oil presure test . presure should be 14 to 57psi(2.0to5.0bar)@3000rpm. oil at 60c
if all is ok check cable going to switch for breaks or touching frame and shorting out,if thats all ok next change oil presure switch . if the test do not produce the results to spec then the right hand side off engine will need be striped down to replace the oil pump and inspect the internal engine componants for oil starvation damege which could result in a complete engine overhaul. i would not be using the bike until repaired. engine seizer can result in an accident.
