Red Warning Light

Today I had a indicator light come on that was a red circle with a red line outside the right and left side. My manual is not available for a week. (Thats another story) Is it the brake pad warning indicator? Please tell me its something else. 08 GT with 2400 miles. I have been reading all the posts about it but only read that it is red (no description). No pictures that I could find and no manual. Please help.

According to the 2008 Owners Manual it is "Brake-pad wear limit reached"

Welcome to the K1200GT "broken pad wear sensor wire" club. Unfortunately it isnt an elite club as it has many many members.
Your dealer will replace all of your disc pads under warranty and replace the wire zip ties with less tension than the 1st time round.
