Engine Trouble light..

Hey R6 owners any of you guys ever got a engine trouble light? Mine came on today for a while, and then it just went off.. It's the third time it happens sometimes it stays on for a while until i turn the bike off. When i turn it back on it goes away? I got it today, i was running low on fuel, i ran 14 miles witht he low fuel light, but i don't think that has anything to do with the engine light.
Anyways i think i saw a number 18 the other day.
Any idea?....
I think i am going to have to call the dealer and see what's up.

The low fuel light shouldn't cause your engine light to come on. There shouldn't be any trouble with running your bike on low fuel...except for running out of gas. Take her to the dealer and have them check'er out.

Thanks marko i checked the code today i threw me a 18 code.
According to the manual it's EXUP servo motor
(stuck) EXUP servo motor is stuck.
The EXUP is supposed to be an exhaust valve in the under-engine exhaust collector that creates variable back pressure to tune the torque curve.
I didn't want to call the dealer without knowing what it was, so i'll give them a call and see if that's covered under my warranty or not.
