Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ignition coil.
2. Faulty spark plug cables.
3. Faulty temperature sensor.
4. Faulty starter motor.
5. Valves adjusted too tight.
6. Spark plug gap too wide.
7. Fuel has vapor lock.

SOURCE: cbr 125 choke problem
It sounds like the choke line may not have been routed correctly when the new one was installed. Remove the gas tank and check to see that the line is not being stretched anywhere along the way AND that the gas tank when re-installed is not stretching the line. The line may have been kinked when installed. Look at the mechanical movement of the choke at the carb. Does it operate freely? Remove the air filter and look inside the center of the carb, (you may need to use a small mirror for this), does it look like the choke is opening and closing properly when the choke is moved on and off?

Is your fan kicking on when your bike starts to get hot?
On my cbr the fan would kick on at 215 degrees. Even sitting in traffic on a 90 degree day my bike would only get up to 220 at most.
If your fan is kicking on when its suppose to and you have your radiator filled up full then I would check your thermostat.
The thermostat is an object that opens up when your engine reaches a temperature of around 180 degrees and lets antifreeze run through your engine to keep it cool. If the thermostat isn't opening up then the antifreeze isn't circulating through your engine, its just sitting inside your radiator. And that's not what you want.
You can remove the thermostat from your bike and put it in a pan of water and heat the water up with a candy thermometer in the water and you should see your thermostat open up at around 180 degree's. Just do this on the stove. The water won't be boiling so you will be able to see it open up.
Hopefully its just your thermostat because they are very cheap(around 10 bucks).
If your thermostat is good and your fans kick on when they are suppose to then I would say its a water temp sensor or a sensor period.
I'll bet though that if you take your bike for a ride and when it gets around 215 degrees that your fan isn't kicking on to help the motor cool back down.
Hopefully this is the case and if it is you can just run the fan wires to your battery and hook up a toggle switch to turn your fans on whenever you please. This is just a bandaid fix and not fixing the real problem but it will get you by until you can fix it the right way.
Well I hope I may have been of some assistance and good luck,
Remember to check your fluid while the bike is running and warmed up completely, because if you just fill your radiator with the bike turned off it will only fill your radiator with fluid and not your motor as well(because the thermostat will be closed) which is what you want. Also after you fill your radiator when the bike is running and you can fill it any more let the bike run for a little while with the cap off to let any air in the cooling system purge out of the open radiator. You should see some air bubbles coming out of the radiator cap hole. If you have air in the system that will cause your bike to overheat as well. Had this happen on a Honda Car.
If you feel I did a good job answering your question please give me a fixya rating and THANKS!

It all seems to be leading to fuel starvation. Have you checked the tank breather is not blocked which can be a small hole in the petrol cap or a tube from under the tank. It could also be a blocked fuel filter. There should be two. One inside the fuel tank under the petcock, another before the fuel pump. Here is the workshop manual where you can find all info you will ever need for this bike.
Hop this has been useful, rate me if it has...?
Thanks and good luck.

The bike wont start for a little bit ????????????
What do you mean.Either it starts or it doesn't.
First of all check the fuel pump.Place the kill switch to "off" position and turn on the key.Put your left hand on the pump (it is under the seat and close to the fuel tank I think.Looks like a drum with 2 pipes on one side and wire on the other end) and then press the kill switch to "on" position.The pump should start pumping for a few sec and then it will stop.
What exactly is a "spudder" that you heard from the exhaust? Like an explosion with a flame (backfire)?
When you crank the engine does it feel like having combustion or it turns like there are no pistons inside?
