Yamaha Question

Recently purchased 2007 Yamaha 200 HPDI. It has about 50 hours on it. Cranked it Saturday, warning buzzer sounded. Not a solid beep, but beep-beep-beep. Both oil tanks full, nothing blocking the water intake, peeing fine. I put it in gear to get away from the launch a bit, and it stopped. Idling in neutral, buzzer was sounding, as soon as it was put into gear, no buzzer. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Captain, it is still doing it. And, I called myself reading the owner's manual, don't recall anything about a maintenance buzzer.

air
Sounds like air in the oil line. Had that happen once on a new engine....

Water pump Impeller?
I have an Evinrude with water pressure sensor - does the same thing if water pressure gets low. it will drop to idle and stop if engine continues to heat up.
Be carefull it want take much to damage your engine.

Thanks for all the input. I spoke with the service dept at Boats Unlimited and plan to leave it with them tomorrow. I'll re-post as to what the problem was.

Update
Update---according to the mechanic, it is water in the fuel, but, he is still scratching his head bc the buzzer that's sounding is supposed to be the "low oil" buzzer. What he's saying is that that engine has 3 different buzzers. A solid beeeeeeeeeeppppp is over heating, a 3 beep repeating sequence is supposed to be water in fuel, and a non stop beep-beep-beep-beep-beep (what mine is doing)is supposed to be low or no oil. Leave it to my motor to have an odd problem.
