There is plenty of oil in the window. I did recently add a filter relocation kit but I’ve put a couple hundred miles on it since.
Pump? Filter clog? Pressure(level) sensor? Relay for same?
It runs well, no weird noises (like dry cams, etc) not overheating...
???

Happened to me with my 1100 occasionally, usually after a long highway ride. There are a couple of theories I've heard about - oil foaming and fooling the sensor, and the sensor getting dirty. The thing to remember is that it's not an oil pressure sensor, it's an oil level sensor. If your oil level is good you have nothing to worry about. Whenever mine came on I'd stop, check the oil, then continue. It usually went out in 15 or 20 minutes.

NorthernRider is correct, the 1100 is infamous for false oil light.

I am glad to hear that when i did my voltage regulator i noticed the dealer that did an oil change before i bought it left one of the screws loose. It had a little leak but not enough to leave drips. After i put the regulator on i let it idle for about 5 min to check and the light came on. Turned the bike off and have never seen it since.
