oil light constant flashing!!!

Hi, I've been on the forum for about 2 hours now trying to find a solution to a problem I'm having. Here's the situation:

06 Honda CBR600RR, 3990 miles, everything else is stock.

Today I started installing my DDM hid lights kit(both lights). I disconnected the + battery cable and got to wiring everything. Nothing difficult about that. Everything is pretty much plug and play(I made sure to connect the + and - correctly).
I did the low beam first and decided to check out the light to see if it would turn on. I turned the key, and the light just flashed for about half a second and stayed off. Did it again and the same thing happened. I tried turning the bike on but it wouldn't. When I pressed the ignition start button, everything in the dash turned off, then came on when I released the start button. I decided to disconnect everything, but now the bike won't even turn on. I turn the key everything in the dash goes as normal(rev needle goes up then down, speedometer counts down to zero, etc...), but when I flip the killswitch on everything dies and the oil indicator light begins to flash on and off constantly with a "ticking" or "clicking sound". The clock is on by the way.

I thought it could be the BAS, but I didn't mess with that.

What does that constant flashing and ticking of the oil light indicator???

Please help.

not an 03-06 guy (maybe KS will chime in), but pep's tend to kill there battery when installing HID's and what not. it doesn't sound like this is your problem. first things first, go back over EVERY thing you did. double check it. it was fine prior, so it's something you did. it "does sound like a weak battery. i'd see about jump starting the bike AFTER you re-check everything. get back to use about whats going on. T.K.

he asked me before i PMs. I told him that's very queer.

you know, now that i've had a night to sleep on it, i wonder about your battery.

take it to a place that can load test it. your battery might have OCS.

Battery is not strong enough same reason for acting up cluster
