Question about Motorcycles
Check your battery fluid level and voltage. It should be about 12.5V. A marginal battery can die quickly if not run consistently. Lights will come on at less than 12V but some ignitions won't fire a spark below 12V. Also check kill switch, stuck stand switch, and clutch lock out if so equipped.

SOURCE: yamaha yz125 wont start...
hello there guys, listen a top tip is when the engine's cold tip the bike almost right on its side nearly touching the floof, wait for the petrol to poor out of the carb over flow pipe, this should take a matter of a few seconds, stand the bike back up again and kick and that baby should start right up, if it does then you have a problem with your float, if it still doesn,t then take it to a shop and get them to check it out, hope this helps. regards sam

get the clymer yamaha motorcycle repair manual for 1981-2002. it will be twenty bucks well spent.
most book stores carry it or you can go to a motorcyle shop or on the internet at clymer.com

The battery is not under the seat - its sits behind the square plastic panel under the handle bars. (If sitting on the bike the battery cover is beneath the ignition switch. Held on with on screw and pops off to reveal the batt box. The batt should have a retaining strap which would need to be removed before batt will come out.
Hope this helps

Check the kick stand switch first. They are always in a location that is ideal for collecting dirt etc. Put the stand down and press the switch a few times by hand and then try starting again. Maybe even a bit of WD40 on it if it's anything like mine after being riden through the winter.
If this doesn't work, the kill switch is then worth investigating.
