2015 has gas in the oil.

Recently I had noticed that after my bike had warmed up, if I stopped anywhere short or long distance, the engine will rev high on restart only for a few seconds. I did not think too much about it until today when we had made a short stop on the side of the interstate the oil light began flashing. I shut down the bike and restarted a few minutes later it revved high as I expected but the flashing oil light had stopped so we continued on. When we got ready to exit about 10 miles down the road the oil light began flashing again so we pulled in to the nearest gas station to check the oil which is when we found that there is a lot of gasoline in the oil. to the point it was half way up the dipstick.

That sounds nasty.mine revs higher on restart but then drops back down fairly quickly.not sure about the gas in oil.might be one for a pro.

Maybe the Coolant Sensor is going bad. And causing the engine to flood

This is not a car coming from open loop to closed loop for emissions, nor is it a cold start injector on early TBI/SFI systems... There is no way with modern technology that a small brass ECT sensor would cause the engine to dump that much amount of fuel, causing the gas to lose viscosity and cause severe damage to the motor...

I would be looking at all possible angles, not just the "mechanical" side of things, also the electrical... I mean you can't diagnose over the phone or without any pictures or proof, I told everyone it's pissing in the wind or shooting in the dark... Something tangible would help greatly...

Double check the regulator/fuel pump, I understand that regulators are internal with our pumps and cannot be serviced separately, along with several other avenues of diagnostic steps... PCM data readouts if need be, several other ways to go about this...

I DO NOT recommend you drive or start up your motorcycle without diagnosing and fixing the problem first but also changing the oil ASAP

Also did you get the recall performed? I understand that in the 2014 and 2015 models they had several issues with the fuel delivery, and I am guessing this has a lot to do with it... And the fact I cross my fingers you still have some kind of warranty...
