Need Some Help

I have a 2011 ZX6R with almost 13k miles on it. PCV,M4 Slip on, and a K&N filter on it. This morning I was heading out to the SMR and my bike stalled while i was riding. I stop on the side of the road and then begin trying to start it and it wouldnt start right up. After about couple of mins it started up. Rode for about 3 hrs and it happened again while i was exiting the highway. Anyone ever encounter this or heard of this?? I would really like to get an idea on where to start for diagnosis. Thanks in advance

When it wouldn't "start", would it turn over but not run or would it not turn over?

Sounds like the eductor coil in the ignition is heating up and opening.

Some call it a "pickup coil".
I had that problem on my Triumph.
Running down the freeway at 70, and then roll of when I'd get to my exit, the motor would die and restart after about a minute.
When you roll off the throttle like that, engine temperature peaks due to the sudden decrease of coolant flow.
Back in the `70's Ford had the same problem with their distributors.
If this is your problem, it will get worst.
You can put them in an oven, hook up an ohm meter and watch for it to open as it gets hot.
I'd say about 250 degrees F.

It can be done. you would need to have the resistance value spec of the coil.
If you have a service manual it should be in there.
