It would be a good idea to change to oil completely as it looses it's lubricating properties when it gets too hot. As I suspect you've cooked it.

Under the engine there is sump that store the Oil. At the lowest point in the sump there is a bolt with a washer on it. With a 2 litre tray (ice cream container) undo that bolt and the remaining oil will drain out. Wait 10 minutes till or untill it stops dripping. Refit the bolt with the washer.
On the right side of the bike there is a back plastic screw in cap a 6 inches or so above the rear brake. Remove and fill hole with 1.5 Litres of good oil ($40US). In a moderate climate you probably want to run an oil called "10W40" (the numbers in oil refer to the ambient degrees celsius that it is designed to be used in.) Refit the plastic black cap.

In your case there is some merit in running the bike for a while and repeat the process to flush out the system.

P.S. What you did was bad. Don't do it again. You probably need to change your air filter and tighten your chain too.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor


Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

Rattling/knocking noise under low acceleration?


Afraid that sounds like the ends are gone, the best way to tell is to get a compression test done on it, but you can usually work it out for yourself.
The engine is under most strain when the power demand is highest for example when accelerating uphill from a slow rolling speed. you will also get the knocking on the overrun, i.e when you have been running at a higher speed and you shut the throttle. When maintaining the same speed does the knocking get more or less? if its less then its almost certain the ends have gone
If as I think it is the ends (usually the big ends rather than the little ends) I afraid its probably terminal. the cost of repair would be too high.
Be careful when riding as the probable result of worn end shells is a con rod through the side of the block and at speed that could be seriously dangerous

Oil light on even with oil level correct, now engine making a rattling noise, live in Spain need help. A6 Avanti 2002


The light is on because of oil pressure being low in the engine, do not drive this until the source of this low pressure is corrected. The noise you hear is engine parts lacking proper lubrication. Have this fixed ASAP or you will destroy the engines bearings, a $4000.00 repair on this car.

My Audi A4 2009 makes a rattling noise on cold starts which resolves in less than 30 seconds. Dealer says its an air pump. This doesn't seem correct. The noise comes from the front of the care. Does not...


READ THIS (happy ending so far...):
audi a4 2L turbo quattro, manual transmission with 98,000 KM. Perfect conditions, no oil leaks whatsoever.

Left the car off for two weeks in very cold weather (-10C down to -25C). When I restarted, it started immediately but with heavy rattling noise due to camshaft adjuster not getting enough oil pressure. After 3 minutes of warming up (outside temp.: -12C) at very low rpm (below 2,000rpm), I start moving the car. Still hearing heavy rattle noise. As soon as I pass 2,000 rpm, I get a scary red warning, low oil pressure. Turn off the engine immediately. In 1 minute, I re-start the car and the engine lights check ok, so I drive in first gear super slow (1,200rpm) hearing the same rattling noise. After another minute, finally the noise all the sudden disappears and the car starts running just fine.

Called Audi dealer and they told me that in extreme weather conditions, I should warm the engine for 10-15 minutes if necessary before start moving.
Take away: luckily, I didn't screw up the engine since I was using it at extremely low rpm (easy to do with clutch and manual transmission) until the oil reached full pressure. I am pretty sure now that the problem was leaving the car off for such a long time in freezing weather. All the oil flows back to the bottom, and when I restarted it, the cold oil with high viscosity took a long time to reach all the parts of the engine, specially the camshaft adjusters that are actuated by using oil pressure. Next day, the car started at -9C perfectly without making any noise (as usual). Basically, the longer you leave your audi in cold weather, the longer you might hear the rattling noise until the oil reach full pressure inside the engine. My car took 6 minutes to fix it after couple of weeks in cold weather. This makes sense to me; in fact, in the past I only heard the rattling noise after leaving the car off for a couple of days in the winter.
So far, this has had an happy ending....

Engine rattle noise


Have you checked your oil? Sounds like you may have run it way low, the loud metallic noise is probably metal on metal contact inside your engine, add oil and it that fixes it, count yourself lucky, if not need to take it to a shop.

Honda cbx 6 clutch rattle at idle and low rev hirendouse


Glazed alternator clutch plates? Kind of a ratcheting sound? Common when oil wasn't changed or sitting unused too long.
1. Easy fix - drain oil, remove filter. Add diesel fuel to crankcase. Turn engine over. let sit and drain. Refill with new nonsynthetic oil and replace filter. Warm up. Drain, remove filter. Refill with fresh nonsynthetic oil, and install new filter.
2. Harder, but better. Remove plates and clean or replace them.
