Oil light fun.. 07 S2R 1000. On and then off.. On and then off..

It finally happened to me today. Intermittent oil lights out on an hour long trip..
Top speed was likely 50, but everything felt fine. Oil level is a hair above max on the glass, and temps when I returned home were just a tiny bit under 100. No loss of oil.

It actually turned off both times when I stopped at a light and got to accelerate away hard in first again..
But, really the bike feels great.. theres just over 10k on the clock, and I just changed the oil.
This could be a coincidence as the light only came on twice, but it did come on both times in 4th while thudding along at a cruise.

I'm presuming this is the bs light from a possibly failing switch, but is there anything to make sure it is, so it won't play on my mind so much.

I also heard the sensor is identical to the Vauxhall agila oil pressure switch. Is this true?

Many thanks.

Rob.

You really need to put a pressure gauge on it , but it sounds like the light may not be working right.
