So my bike has developed a little issue. I can get on it start it ride however far I want to. But as soon as I stop somewhere after having rode a little distance it won't start back up. It acts like the kill switch is engaged.....that's a good band. Anyways if I let it sit for a while and cool off it will fire back up like normal. Any ideas? Thanks.

You mean no starter when you push the starter button?

Solenoids can act weird, as can the starter button itself when they get hot. I believe your bike's solenoid has a tiny plug on it to give the signal, you might find it is corroded or the wire compromised. First thing I would check. The kickstand wire next.

Both solenoids and starter buttons can act like that just before they give out completely.

It only happens when its warm or hit after a ride. I would think if the solenoid was bad it wouldn't start at all
Resistance increases with temperature, clearances also increase with temperature. As a result, brushes, solenoids, switches and terminals that are working fine at ambient each add a bit more voltage drop and a single component or a combination may let you down at operating temperature. Check resistances cold and hot to chase down the problem(s).
