Do you jump on and ride or do you let it warm up the back cylinder first? Oil check every day on a new motor, I would document the check of the oil and the red light when it comes on. Are you accelerating hard when it comes on? Are you following the proper guide lines of breaking in your new motor? These are things on a warranty issues when they arise. If the dealer goes under or you take it some where else to get it looked at. I would log every thing..

I have over 12000 on my 11 XR and have started it 100's of times. The lights in the guages come on when I turn on the ignition then go off when I start it. None of them stay on so yours sounds a little wonky. I would make sure the oil is at the right level; too low and the light will come on but if it's anything like my V-Star the light may also come on if it's too high.

Agreed. Check oil level first. If ok, consider an oil change using standard vic oil- it's possible the dealer put the wrong weight in.

How long have you had the bike and whats the mileage?
