Problem starting my '00 zx6r

hey guys, i'm new on this forum becos i was trying to find a place to get some helpful advice etc. I just bought my zx6r 3 days ago, when the previous owner first dropped it off at my house and introduced me to the bike, it started like a charm everytime. I took it for a rip that night and it was still ok. But the next day, I started having trouble starting the bike, it seemed I always needed to hook it up to a battery charger to start it, so I figured it was just the battery problem.

Today I bought a new battery and it was working fine, I took it for a rip to get some bubble tea and after it wouldnt start again. Eventually I started it from a rolling start in 1st gear and tried again, after 3 tries I got it started.

I'm really stuck on what could be wrong, could it be the alternator? Can anyone find a diagnosis for it with all this information I gave? If anyone has any ideas about what I should try to find a diagnosis for the problem, please help! I appreciate everybody's input! Please and thank you~

oh I forgot to mention that last night I charged the old battery overnight, and this morning before I bought the new battery it would start fine. But after a while of being off the battery charger, the same problem would come up and it wouldn't start again.

I am also having this issue with my '98 zx-6r. It seems to start fine when cold, but if the engine is hot I have to give it a rolling start in 1st gear. Any solution/ideas anyone?
