Question about Honda XL 125 R Motorcycles
If this is faulty will it stop the bike from starting ?
Possibly, but you can short it out to prove the switch. try pulling the clutch in when you start. The stand cut out should only cut the engine if the bike is in gear.

sounds like its the safty cut out switch on the stand to me as well, you should see it by looking under the bike by the stand,,,its just a push in switch,,,
as for leaving the bike over winter with out charging the battery up,,,well smack your legs! you will soon need a new battery for that!
il give you a tip here!!!! get yourself a cheap solar charger of say 2.5 watts hook that to the bikes battery and leave the charger in good light,(sun light is good) but good day light works as well, this will keep the battery fully charged up all winter and can double the life of the battery,,,cheap power?

What you are describing sounds like an ignition coil breaking down as soon as it come up to temperature. It could also be as simple as a spark plug and most probably is. I tend to disagree with the suggestion you received about the contact points (if your motorcycle actually has them). Generally points will make a mess out of starting and if they are failing wouldn't wait 20 minutes to let you know. I'm going to say spark plug(s) (change 'em both) then possibly a coil OR the high tension lead is shorting against the block or some part of the frame. Now I can't say names or someone will get upset but a German made motorcycle doesn't generally work to well with spark plugs made in America. Been in the Recreational business for a lot of years and if there is one spark plug that just works it's found in every Honda MC and of course is made in Japan. Hope you picked up on were i was trying to lead you ;-). Cheers have a great day, hum you riding your motorcycle and I'm up to my bum in snow and getting another foot of the stuff :-(

Bypass your switch,,,,Unplug the switch and see if it runs,,,If not,,,run a loop wire between the two wires on the switch,,,Read your wiring diagrams.
