I know the owners manual says sae 10w 40, but i found valvoline motorcycle oil at wal-mart for about $4.00 a quart works really well, it has the additives for all twin and wet clutch. they have it in several viscositys available.

According to the Kawasaki site you should use SE class SAE 10W40, 10W50, 20W40 or 20W50 oil for the engine. You use SAE 10W oil for the front fork.

The two switches you are having problems with are thermetically controlled; they can easily short out which will cause the light to stay on. First what I'd like you to do is disconnect them at the sending unit, if the lights still stay on you have a short somewhere deeper in the wiring. Most likely it will be a grounded wire. If the lights do go off you will then want to use an OHM meter to check continuity at the senders. If you get solid resistance then the sending unit is shorted out, if one remains open then isolate the other. You may have a situation that one switch is causing both to stay lit.
Let me know if this helps you out at all. Tell me if you don't have the resources to co the diagnostics as described and I'll be happy to give you a work around. We will just have to be a little creative.
Either way let me know and I'll be happy to help you resolve the issue. I'm inclined to thing your problem is a short not a heat related issue since both sending units are both indicating a problem.
Regards,
RSelvy

Synthetic is best but also $$$$$$. Just buy your oil from dealer, mine holds a hair under 4 qts (i use 4 qts) with filter. drain plug is under motor assy (bottom)

Testimonial: "thank you for the quick response. I went and bought 4 qts. I put in just over 3 1/2 w/new filter. when the bike is straight up it covers the line."
