To troubleshoot things on the internet you need to provide more detail. For example what year and model bike do you have?

On all bike's the oil light goes on when you initially start them. It's so you can tell the bulb is working. It's only a problem if it stays on. On some bikes the number of blinks after the bike first starts acts as a trouble code to tell you what the problem is.

Unless added way too much oil an oil change is not going to cause a bike to not idle.

I don't have a ZX10 but this is apparently not that rare a thing. Here's a whole thread on it. You can use the search function to find more:

Changing engine oil with 4 litres of oil has nothing to do why engine dies. How long has this bike been sitting?
