oil change problems

I own a 1989 zx 1000 B. Before I changed the oil and filter I changed out the old gas with fresh gas and synced the carbs. The bike ran fine. I rode it around the neighborhood all weekend. Then I changed the oil and filter. As soon as I started the bike it would not stay running without the choke being held open. The brand and weight I used is 20w-50 quicksilver. I also noticed while the engine is running the oil level sight glass shows no oil at all. I also replaced the oil/bolt.
