Don't worry, that symbol comes on if you are just a few ounces low. I found out right after my 600 mile service. When I got the bike back, I used the BC button to cycle through to the oil check, and I got the symbol. Checked the oil with the dipstick, and it was just below the Min mark. I added about 4 ounces of oil, and the little check mark came right back on, then I called Manhattan BMW to bitch, they mailed me a quart of oil, with an apology. Bottom line the sensor is very sensitive, as it should be, don't worry about it ride home add a few ounces you should be good to go. I think if your really low oil a different light comes on, making you aware you have an oil pressure problem, and its time to kill the engine immediately.
