ZX6R vibration and oil pressure loss?

Hey guys...I know I have been away for awhile but the fish is back in the pond again and I thought someone might have some suggestions for me about my ZX6R.
Last year I rebuilt the top end of my motor and the thing ran great for about 5,000 miles.
While I was on my way home one night (not running hard) my motor started making a loud vibration noise but the exhust felt like all cylinders where doing their job.
I thought I could limp the bike home but about an 1/8th of a mile down the road my oil pressure light came on and I shut the bike down instantly.
My brother picked me up in his truck and I took the bike home.
I have a new oil pump that I will be installing first and with some luck that may be the problem..........But......If that doesnt do it I would really appreciate some Ideas as to what you guys may think this is.
I know my top end is solid and all my work there is dead on so maybe there are some Issues in my bottom crank that might cause my noise and oil press. loss.
My best advice has always come from this forum and that is why I will not subscribe to any other.
Thanks
