No oil, Knocking sound, Im screwed!

So I was riding in to work today and about half way there my bike suddenly starts to make a knocking sound with about a 50 % power loss. AAAhhhhggg!!!!
When I get to work I checked the oil and there is none. WTF?? I just filled it about 1,500 miles ago.

Anyways, I didn't ride with it in this condition very long, its just sitting in the parking lot right now. At lunch Im going to Cycle Gear to buy some oil for it and take it in for service this weekend.

Am I royally screwed? It didn't overheat or anything like that. No warning lights, nothing! What the hell am I up against right now?

call your dealer and get it picked up today. You have a warranty, use it.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Im certainly going to do that, but I was wondering what the hell the problem might be. I guess they'll figure that out. I want to avoid at all costs the whole "well you know this is your fault" kind of shiat that dealers like to pull.

When you start hearing knocking noises, it is smart to stop riding.

I have had the same thing happen, but to a bike that uses a lot of oil. Roll off the throttle, noise went away. Roll on the throttle, noise came back. That means rod knock from too much bearing clearance (bad bearings) or lack of oil.

Any idea where you lost the oil? When I do an oil change, I always run for a minute or two , then check again. You didn't use a lock washer for the oil bolt by chance did you? is the bolt dripping in any way? 3.75 quarts or whatever the bike calls for is a LOT of oil, you would have slipped the back tire on it for sure, or you will see it under the bike and so on....

The dealers suck, I feel for ya, but for now, it is their problem...

+3 on the dealer and warranty. If you never got an oil warning light that's really odd.

Keep us posted.

That sucks man, the power loss was due to high heat. Same thing happened in my car. Did you notice the temp? Strange no oil light came on. I always try to keep an eye on my oil before I hop on just a good habit to get into.

I hope your bike is ok.

Fill the oil level to the proper oil level first. VERY IMPORTANT. Then call the dealer. If you don't they might say you should always check the oil level and make it your fault. I'm just think what they might say cause I work for a ford dealer (Yeah I know they are crappy, but they keep me busy).

how long did you wait to check the oil level. most of the oil is in the head and other places. you have to wait for it to settle before checking. my guess is that you did not run out of oil.
