Oil pressure problem

So I changed the oil in bike and used rotella fully synthetic 15w 40. Oil light wouldn't go off found out oil pressure sensor under stator cover wire was broke. So I wrapped spare wire around screw and tightened it then wrapped it with oiled wire. Turned on bike and oil light went off. After getting pretty warm light turns on until i rev it to 2 1/2 it goes off. Tried to take it for a ride whe. Bike gets highway speed and motor gets really hot oil light stays on till 6k rpm. Took it straight home. I'm not sure if it could be from the sensor and the way I hooked it up or something else. I checked oil filter to see if oil pressure seems to be there and started bike and oil shot out. So I'm puzzled any help? Oh and I don't know if this makes a difference but there is a leak on valve cover gasket and stator cover but I already have the stator cover gasket coming in.

Was it working fine before the oil change ? Did you change the filter ? If so I would try another filter . I do not think the leaking valve cover or stator cover would be the problem unless it is pouring out .

I'm not sure it was messed up when I got it a couple weeks ago I'm just now in the works of putting it together
