M8 oil light coming on when getting on throttle

Has anybody had this issue, I have a couple thousand miles on motor since dealership rebuild from sumping. Was getting on freeway yesterday and noticed after I got into traffic the oil light was on. I know the oil couldn't be low but went immediately home and checked oil it was full. Called dealership and talked to them about it, he said sometimes if getting on it on a hill the oil light will come on, I was on flat ground. I've never heard of oil light coming on when accelerating up a hill. Will be taking it back in tomorrow, hoping it's not another bad oil pump.

I had a bike that the oil light cans on during hard acceleration. It was a VMax. Pretty a Harley is not supposed to do that. Take it back to dealer and make them fix it.
