On my 2007 K1200GT, you can scroll through the various settings, but the Oil Check display varies on whether you are moving or not. My KGT has the TPM option, so you see a Tire Pressure display as you scroll through the various "BC" displays. The order of the displays when I press the BC button on the right handlebar is:
Distance to Empty ->
Average Speed ->
Average Mileage (MPG) ->
[Oil Check] ->
Tire Pressures (TPM) ->
Outside air temperature ->
(back to Distance to Empty again)
If you are moving, the Oil Check display is skipped when scrolling between displays.
If you are stopped, the Oil Check display is available and you can scroll to it.
If you leave the display set to Oil Check, then it changes to the tire pressure monitor (TPM) as soon as the bike starts moving. When you stop again, the Oil Check display reappears, unless you changed the display while moving.
Not everyone has the TPM option on their 2007 KGT, so obviously their bike is different. I never thought to ask what happens. I would guess that their bikes switch between Oil Check and Outside Air Temperature depending on whether they are moving or not, but I have not seen it for myself.
