Its worth trying a new oil sender switch.
I assume you have put new oil and filter on the bike

Low oil pressure light comes on in 2003 chevy venture?

Oil level? Last time serviced? Oil filter changed? Number of miles? Regular service as required by Owner's manual? Otherwise if none of these are a problem, you may have a failed or failing oil pump. Worst case is bearing problem.

Need help with oil light

If your oil light is on, then it'll mean either your oil level is below the recommended level; the oil pressure sensor is bad, there's a leak somewhere reducing the pressure of the oil); the oil pump is faulty

Oil level is fine, however, oil light has come on after a 200km ride once in peak hour traffic.

The light is not a level indicator, it is a pressure indicator. Assuming you have the correct oil and the right amount of it, something caused your oil pressure to drop. My first suspicion is clogged oil pick up, but you should pull the oil pan and take a look.

Low oil pressure

Hi ....... Have a look at your handbook and check the type of oil stipulated and that you have the correct amount & level, maybe another, thinner/cheaper oil has been used and when it's up to operating temp' the viscosity isn't enough to maintain pressure and fully open the pressure switch. If oil level is OK and correct oil filter has been fitted REPLACE the oil pressure switch, they're cheap and easy to do.
Let us know how you get on.
