Oil Pressure Light 2006 ST3S

I used rubber plugs on the TBS synch nipples and one expired. I thought the Check Engine Light came on. Bad news, it was the oil pressure light. I drove home (< 5 miles) and had no expensive noises. . I replaced the synch nipples with proper metal plugs and gaskets. I started the engine and there was no Oil Pressure Light. The next day, I took the bike for a test ride and within three blocks, the Oil Pressure Light returned. The bike was running well.
Am I right in thinking and hoping this is an oil pressure and sensor issue? If so, how do I test it?
