Sounds like a basic wiring/connector fault contact/no contact etc. You can link out the side stand switch with a short piece of wire to eliminate it.

strange thing is it only happens when the bike is hot. never had a problem any other time. suppose I should eliminate the side stand switch.

You need to check the two wires/connector that goes to the starter solenoid. When you press the starter button this energises the solenoid thus the starter. If the bike will bump start when the problem happens then you may have found your problem.

If lights come on that should rule out the ignition switch and the ignition relay

Does the fuel pump prime, if so main suspects are right hand switch gear (start button), start Solenoid or the starter motor itself, the brushes in these do wear down, also the commutator wears and if the oil seal goes the commutator ends up frying in oil
