SV problems

Hey guys,
On my 04 SV650s I was riding down the road and came to a stop sign and my bike died. When i checked to see what was wrong, my oil light was on and the bike would try to kick over but no such luck, it just goes right back to dead. The oil light stays on and tries to idle around 400 rpm for a split sec before dying out. I checked and the oil was really low so i refilled and hoped for a fix. i let the bike sit for a while and when i started the bike it ran just fine for about 3 miles and crapped out again, same problem but still had a full oil reading. no leaks no nothing.

History: i bought the bike about 2 months ago from a private seller on craigslist and has about 18k on it. oil and filter changed about 1k ago. Running temp around 190.

Is this a oil pump problem or something else?This is my first bike so i am kind of flying for the seat of my pants. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds stupid, but is there gas in it? You never mentioned if you checked.

The oil light will stay on until the bike is running, there is no oil pressure if the bike is not on or running long enough / high enough rpm to build pressure.

Tia- Yeah full tank.

YZF- yeah, it usually shuts off when i start the bike. the red light came on just seconds before the rpms dropped and it went dead

it sounded like it wanted to turn over but to no success...

How much oil did you you have to add to bring it back to full?
Are you checking the oil on the kickstand or straight up and down?
If you can bring the bike by I can look at it and let you know if it's an oil pressure issue, no charge.
