Soft dropped bike, oil question
I'm fairly new to motorcycles and I'm a mechanics ignoramus and I recently bought a 2003 919. I love the bike but the 2nd day I had it, I stalled out at an up hill stop sign and ended up soft dropping it. I broke the left mirror off and ended up with a small dent in the fuel tank where I tried to hold it up with my knee.
I got the bike up and the oil light came on and it wouldnt start for a few minutes. I drove the bike home and I've driven it quite a bit since.
Now almost a week later I go out for a quick spin and as I pull back into my garage the bike dies and the oil light came on. I checked the oil and couldn't see any in the window. I put 2 quarts in before I saw any in the window. As far as I remember, the oil was full when I bought the bike and it hasn't leaked.
Would a lay down cause the oil to disperse or something? I'm confused how it took so much oil.
