Oil light blinking 9 times, where is sensor?

I dropped my bike off at the dealership to put on some parts and as I did I told them that my oil light was blinking, and it was blinking nine times. They looked in the service manual and said that it was a sensor and showed me a picture and said that it was probably just a bad connection and easily fixed. I assumed that they would check it for me but when I picked it up I asked them if they did and they said "Oh, you wanted us to check that?" So anyway, I was kinda pissed but didn't want to pay however much an hour to get it checked, so can someone with more knowledge than me please help me:

1) figure out which sensor it is referring to
2) where it is because I forget the picture and "somewhere near the airbox" doesn't help me find it.

Thanks!

looked at the manual.
9 Blinks = IAT Sensor

It should be #11-From the looks of it, JUST under the connectors for the ECU.

IAT = Intake Air Temperature sensor

If the bike is under warranty take it back and tell them to fix it. It's either loose or the sensor is bad. If it's not under warranty then you'll have to pull the tank cover and check the PIN connector yourself. Not too hard.
