my engine stalls when its warm

I just got a 2003 600rr and every time it gets warm (210-220 F), the rpm tends to slowly decrease in like a 3 second period (while at a complete stop in first gear), it putters, then shuts off/stalls. Every time this happens the oil light comes on. I am going to change the oil/filter tomorrow with gtx 10-40 I think.
I can start the bike when it does this with the throttle pulled back slightly, but as soon as I let off the gas it begins to putter and stall again.

Edit: I felt the clutch cover and its quite warm when it does this.

Just to clarify: Are you saying the oil light comes on prior to stalling out or afterwards?

If it is lighting up after it stalls out, don't sweat it - that's similar to the light coming on when you turn the ignition to the "on" position prior to cranking the bike over.

Right as the rpm slowly starts to fade, the oil light comes on. It also comes on when the bike is cold. In the time period that it is at around 175-210F it goes off, then reappears once the rpm slows down to a stop.
I will probably take it down to a Honda motorcycle dealer if this still happens, once I change the oil/filter.

this indicates a problem

the oil like is a pressure sensor ... if its not getting full pressure untill its warmed way up, you have an issue

it should be off within a second or two of the motor running (and having built up pressure)

Sounds like your water pump is bad.

Yea, when it stalls the fans remain running, but the engine shuts down.

Oil light is coming on because of the stall. It has nothing to do with your oil.
If your engine stalls when hot, and your fan is coming on, it's the water pump.

...assuming your battery is good.
