Bike shutting off when slowing quickly or sitting at light.

I was slowing from about 50mph to 20mph as I approached traffic .. noticed the red oil light on my dash .. released the clutch and she fired right up again ..

A few min later, I got to a red light, and she turned off, pulled in the clutch and hit the ignition and she fired right up again.

Even had the tank off this morning as I noticed a drop of gas near the petcock, just had to tighten it a 1/4 turn .. not sure how it got loose. I checked all my hoses & lines.

Any ideas?

Mine does this when it gets below 30 degrees F, the past 2 mornings it was acting up. I had to turn up the idle a bit to keep it from stalling. Not sure why the cold does it, maybe something about the temp and fuel/air flow. but riding above 40 degrees it's fine
