    Turning the ignition on with the tank off will have caused that. Don't worry as it should clear after 3 heat cycles.

    Run the engine, let it warm up (ride it) then let it cool down and repeat.

    That's interesting. The book says the bike should be cycled through to running  temperature and back to cold three times. It seems you've been able to do it by just cycling the key on and off. If that's the case ---good find!
