Flashing Oil warning light

Has anyone had this issue: Oil warning light comes on & flashes 10 times & then off for 3 seconds & then 10 more flashes (Flash is like a turn signal light flashing).... does this w/engine off & ignition key to ON position as well as when engine is running, and never quits until you turn off key or engione. Appears to be some kind of sensor warning signal as opposed to being related to Oil level. Called Yamaha Dlr Serv.dept- they don't know what it is,suspect Fuel injection sensor issue. If anyone has had this issue what was it & what was the fix? Thanks in advance Mike

Sounds like time for a new dealer! A quick search of the shop manual (linked in a sticky in the general forum on this site) resulted in the answer. Page 8-112, paraphrasing here, but 10 flashes then off for 2.5 sec means malfunction detected in oil level switch, replace switch.

+1 on that. A service dept that can't even diagnose a fault code is not one I'd want working on my bike!
