R3 oil light issue

I have a brand new r3 a month old. Sometimes when the bike is started the oil light will stay on and it will stay ob till I give it a bit of gas then it goes off. I have been to the dealer and they made pressure test and it was fine they said. Is this a common thing on the r3 and also the 3rd gear on the display sometimes it don't display then sometime it works. They checked the sensor and said it is working fine. I don't know if it's a common problem.

Yes, and maybe.

Oil light is extremely common and most were fixed with the recall. Mine has not been back on since the fix, it was always on before it.

I remember reading about some gear indicator issues but have not had any myself. You may be able to dig up a few threads using the search

Mine had the oil light issue once or twice until the recall was done. Haven't ever had the gear indicator problem though.

Mine has come on since my first oil change. Since recall. It has an extended warranty on the engine so **** it, if it blows I get a new engine.
