Motorcycle will push start but not ignition switch start

Does it turn over when trying to start? If no then it could be the starter, switch, or battery. Sounds like the starter, especially if you tried another switch.

Hi, I have yamaha yzf 125 r(2008) 2 days ago i washed my bike with water. After washing bike started normally as usually. But today when i wanted to start it, starter just trying to start the bike but...

Check your ignition components for condensation. If you wash the bike using water especially around the motor, you should promptly dry it thoroughly before starting it to avoid the possibility of condensation caused shorts in the ignition system. I personally use a leaf blower to dry mine and let it sit in the sun for a while to make sure it's dry. I think you will find condensation is your problem. Good luck and safe riding.

have you checked for a spark at the plugs. You may well have got water in the coils.The cure for this is natural drying. if this is the case the coils will need to be sealed. and the leads silicone sprayed
