ya need to make sure you have SPARK at the point of this happening. if not then i would say your pickup coil is going OPEN on ya. i dont believe your loosing both coils at the same time.

what year zx6 ? if its got a fuel pump then it may be going OPEN when hot also or vapor locking.

Some bikes have problem with hot starting. The increased heat causes more resistance in the coils giving it much less starting power when hot. I have seen this problem even on very new low mileage bikes. Doesn't mean it's your problem, but it is a possibilty.
