Bike slowed down while riding with chugging motion (Not low gas)
Hello, my name is Nicholas, I am extremely new here. This is my first post so please be patient. I am a new rider as well, bought my 09 Ninja 500 a week 1/2 ago.
I've been riding around my area for awhile just fine getting the hang of things. Yesterday I decided to drive 24 miles to my sisters house, no issues. Then my brother-in-law decided to go fishing. I took the bike with me down some back roads and at a point my bike started to slow down. I would try to initiate throttle to it, and during this process it felt like it was "Chugging". I would still try to throttle it as it was slowing down on it's own and it would still chug. I'm not sure if it was chugging due to me throttling it. (I was trying to throttle it because I thought I was doing something wrong so I would try shifting)
As I was downshifting I noticed my oil light came on briefly. I would let it rest, start her up again and it was fine, and I would get a mile down the road and then the same problem happened. I called for a tow service to pick her up. And unfortunately it got dumped over on a flat bed because the driver didn't tie her down properly. When I went to store it at my local dealer, from what I saw my oil light came on permanently this time, and didn't want to stay running.
Long story short, bike started to slow down, I would throttle it, it felt like it was chugging, oil light briefly came on, started it after resting and it idled fine.
Please help, thank you,
