Starting issues 08 r6

Hey guys, new rider here looking for some help with my 2008 R6. Ive had the bike for about 4 months, the problem started about a month ago. Cold the bike starts fine, but when i ride it and shut it off, when i tried turning it on it would crank and turn on but immediately shuts off. yes the kickstand is up, the bike is in neutral. It doeant happen every time i try to turn it on either but when it does, the only way ive been able to get it to turn on is to give it some gas and and drive around for about a minute or so and it stays on after that. The bike is stock except for fender eliminator and flush turn signals.. any help would be appreciated. thanks in advancE.

No check engine light. When it does it, the only lights that stay on are the lights that are normally on before it starts

Check spark plugs. Mixture for start and idle is rich timing also different. Spark might be too weak.
