There should be a oil pressure sending unit close to the filter, install a manual guage to check the actual pressure, and chack the filter mouting seal surface with a flat edge it may be warped

I put some new 10 40w oil in the case and took off. 2 miles and 120 mph the clutch completely slipped and would not engage. Did I put to much oil in the bike or did the clutch burn up? or What? please...

Not being able to see the bike makes it hard to assess. Get your self a manual, if you haven't got one, go to , and download one. Once you have it apart you will be able to see the damage, and rectify it, and you may even work out what caused it. Sounds to me as if you blew a seal, whether from to much oil or not is very hard to say.

Suzuki sv650 crafshank problem...

I agree with your mechanic. The likelihood is that the oil in the gearbox got too low and starved the crank bearings of oil. It could also have been a defect at the factory that has gotten worse and worse and finely is showing as a major problem. I suggest you get a service manual for this project. A manual becomes instantly priceless when you realize that without it you would have done something wrong or not done something you should have. Install new crank bearings and seals and output shaft bearing and seal at the sprocket. Flush all metal bits from the engine and oil pump. New oil filter is needed. Follow the manual and all should be good. Buy your mechanic a six pack.

Just bought 2001 suzuki savage and when i start it up i see oil dripping from the front

Probably the gasket is worn, and doesnt seals the cover to the oilcarter.
drain the the cover...replace the seal(gasket)...cover back on,turn the screws tight but not to tight...put oil back in...start the engine let it idle for 3 minutes then rev it to apr. 4000 and hold it for 1 minute...kill the engine, check the screws and tighten hard if needed.
That should stop leaking from the front, so you can get back to riding again.
