07 zx10 oil symbol and red light blinking

Hey there guys, new to the forum not sure if this post is in the right section, so somebody correct me if im wrong. anyways.
just got my 07 zx10 candy plasma blue today from a dealer today and was fully serviced and including oil change, but my question is that when the key is in "on" mode the oil symbol and red light blink continuously, but when i start the bike the blinking red light stops as well as oil symbol. I checked oil level and its perfect..anyone help me out?

To expand a little...

When the engine isn't running, there is no oil pressure, which would result in the light being on.

Once running, the oil pump is delivering pressure, hence the light being out.

If you have any issues in the lubrication system while it's running and the light comes on, that's a good time to kill the motor and figure out why it's come on...

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
