Lately  as the weather has been warming up my GPZ has become very difficult 
to start.  This only occurs after riding it for a while, then stopping for a 
few minutes  to an hour and then trying to start it back up while the engine is 
still  warm.

      If the battery or switch doesn't cure it,  try cracking the throttle 
about 1/3 to 1/2 open while you crank it, mine suffers  from the same symptoms 
as yours on very hot days, and it seems like it is  boiling the gas and 
flooding itself.  Cracking the throttle while cranking  helps to clear it out a lot 
faster, just be ready to let off quickly as soon as  it starts up. 
      Good luck
