A perfect answer @leorojasma. Yamahas have a tendency to show the low oil level light when the bike is cold, and it goes away when it warms up, even when the oil level is fine. It's also more common to see an oil level light when the oil is dirty, as explained above. The most likely scenario is that you have some of both going on for that bike. The oil is getting close to change interval and it may be slightly low. Not low enough to trigger the low oil light at idle, but enough to do so at speed. No big deal. A little top off or a normal oil/filter change and most likely you won't see that happen on the next ride. If it did repeat, some more investigation is warranted, but it's not a crisis to worry about. Just a sensor/wire corrosion/connection issue.
