When was the last time the valves were adjusted? Valve adjustment affects more than compression but vacuum as well and should be checked... A lot of rider never check it until they have a problem like this, and it gets worse when it is colder outside.

One, or more, of the three necessary ingrediants for combustion are missing: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time).
You said that it started to overheat. Find out why. Then, check the engine's compression. You need at least 140 psi of compression, in every cylinder, for the engine to start and run. Low compression indicates either the need for a valve adjustment - or serious engine repairs.

Testimonial: "cheers mate will conduct a compression test and take it from there. thanks. "
It is a very good chance your Kill switch is on, find it and turn it off. You need a manual, but I haven't got a freebie available. Just google it and there will be plenty for sale, but if you hunt hard enough you can generally find a freebie.
