Just got done changing the oil on my 1980 Suzuki gs250t, and at first it cranks right up! After I try to start it up again it doesn't start.

The oil light is on and went off for a second then came back on?

Any help would be nice!

Did the oil light come on while it was running or after the engine shut off?

Will the engine crank with the starter?

How was it running before the oil change?

It came on after it shut off, but if you try to start it up it'll go off then come back on.

It doesn't crank with the starter.

It ran fine before I changed the oil, and changed the filter.

No real help here, but double check your work.
Check for some wire you might have knocked loose, clean the the contacts on the battery terminals and any other wire connectors that might have corrosion.
Check the kill switch, it could also be dirty and need cleaned.
Just go through everything and take it as a opportunity for improvement.
