Is this a factory install?
Based on what you are saying here ... I suspect you have a faulty ground. Make sure you have a good ground.
You can test this by making a temporary ground with a wire connecting from the metal case of the radio to the neg side of your battery. This may not be a teller since you say the trouble is intermittent. Your radio will probably never give you the chance to check it peacefully. It will always work when you have the tools out!
If in doubt, install a good ground. Use a very flexible wire, at least #14 or heavier, stranded or woven NOT solid. Fasten the new ground onto the metal case of your radio - make sure you don't create any shorts. Hook the other end to a known good ground on the frame, NOT the handlebars. To make absolutely sure, go to the neg side of your battery with your new ground. Also, make sure your antenna has a good ground and is not shorting to that ground (bad leadin wire).
Let me know if this works for you.

First I suggest that you join the VRCC club ( its FOC) and they have lots of answers on the site.
Of course it depends on the make.

The fastest way is to get a multimeter and set is on DC volts, get to the battery and start the bike place the leads of the meter on the battery posts and rev the motor to about 2000 RPMs you should get a reading of 13-15 volts if the system is working if you dont get that reading then you will have to check the stator,and regulator.

Looking in the service manual it does NOT appear to have a low oil pressure shut down sensor. I has a low oil pressure sending unit that will turn on a light.
