Default Check Engine Light

Hello. I just purchased a 2008 vegas 8ball with 3000 miles on it. It was fine when I rode it for about 45 minutes last night, but today I got a check engine light. It comes on after only going a few hundred feet down the road. The strange thing is that the light goes off when I stop and let it idle. I tried changing the battery but it didn't fix anything. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Also, I forgot to mention that there appears to be some metal shavings in the oil. Other than that, the oil seems relatively clean.

Those were actually tiny bubbles in the oil, not metal. Regardless, an oil changed fixed whatever the problem was

Maybe too much oil in there got it to foaming at speed thus a loss of oil presure.
