Never seen that myself. However if it has just been serviced, it would be reasonable to assume that it was caused by the service. Basic question, but it would be silly not to ask: is the oil level correct? Assuming that's ok, I'd suspect a bad oil filter. You probably can't see the brand without removing it, but what colour is it? You will find it on the left side of the bike, in front of your left foot.

Sounds like a bad filter for sure...low oil level still should still maintain oil pressure at idle

I'd suspect the oil filter possibly being faulty, had that once before causing oil issues on a previous bike.

If its just been serviced then first port of call is to the dealer in all honesty

That has definitely been mentioned on this forum previously. Can't find it at the moment but I think there might have been a sensor issue. However if it has just occurred after a service then perhaps it is something else.  :084:

Glad it seems to have fixed itself.  I had a very similar issue.  The final resolution was having the Oil pressure sensor replaced.  No issues since and I just got back from a 2600 mile wander in the US.

was my final update.  Read thought the earlier stuff for symptoms.
