ktmdude, your dealer is probably right. If the oil pressure stays on constantly without popping up intermittently, then you truly have an issue. But then I guess on (any) new bike it ain't supposed to be happening, as you've pointed out, perhaps a faulty batch.
Upon asking, my dealer here advised me, if you keep seeing LOW OIL PRESS warnings, and you are on the far side, park your bike and check your oil level, if it's on the right level, pressure shouldn't be problem, perhaps it can be just a sensor issue. Eaton pumps last a life time, so as long as the oil level is pukka there's nothing to worry.
If you keep seeing a constant oil pressure warning (rather than an intermittent) one after a mile or so after you first cranked your bike, then it's wise to get it checked as ASAP.
Just my two cents when asked about the question to my dealership here.
Fool me once - Shame on you
Fool me twice - I'll kick your @rse
