Zx14 oil starvation problems?

So guys I'm looking g into buying a 2007 zx14 with 22k miles, I've heard a few horror stories about the engine blowing up do to oil starvation. Is this very common? How does one prevent it from happening? I don't do track days, I ride very casually, to Chicago and back about 40 miles every couple days.
