not a 1250... but maybe helpful for 1200s
on my 16, it works, but sometimes a bit squirrelly in its response time. I trust it.
What I don't know is what it can show other than "OK" or "---" ? How does it indicate needing oil?
I am able to check the oil at a traffic signal, IOW it works that quickly.

Electronic Oil Level
The oil level indicator seemed to work better on my '09 GSA than it did on my '14 and, now, the '18 GSA. Seems like it take at least 30 seconds to show up but, when stopped at an intersection these days, I tend to keep my eyes on the rear view mirror rather than the instruments.

|BikerPilot||I have the 2019 R1250GSA with 6000 miles now. No issues. Electronic oil level works, after sitting still, level (i.e. in front of traffic light), after about a 6 to 10 mile ride. Never really bother with it as the sight glass is instantaneous and just always works, regardless of temperature or my mood 😉|

|Mark_M||I think it is specific to the 2019 R1250. You guys that are reporting that it works, do you have the 2019 R1250?|

|emidyl||is the neutral bit specific to the 1250? I'm usually in gear, clutch lever pulled at a light, and have noticed it register an oil level OK reading. Sometimes it won't show but sometimes it does. 17GSA and my manual only says level surface, at least 10 sec and at normal operating temps.|

|marc||My guess is that the bike really needs to be at full operating temperature. The only time I see the oil level on the dash is after a mid ride fuel fill-up if I happen to have the bike in neutral long enough. That is rare, usually I start the bike and ride away. It happens if I'm waiting for another rider and started my bike a bit too soon.|
