I recently put some BUB Big Wily pipes on my 03 Vulcan Classic , then I changed the oil and the filter came apart when I was taking it off and the rest of the filter wouldnt come out, we aren't sure why. So we put it back together on the bike and left it. The oil light comes on now and I"m not sure why.....any help would be great

I received a recall notice (Jan 04) from Kawasaki for my 2003 1500 Mean Streak, it also listed the 2003 1500 Classic. On eligible units during cold starts, a delay in response of the oil pressure relief valve can occur allowing oil pressure to momentarily rise high enough to deform the bottom plate of the oil filter. The dealer told me that some oil filters had the ends blown out. I don't know if this is your problem but you might check if your bike has a current recall.
