It could be the ignition key switch..They are the number one thing that goes out in these bikes,,Check for power on the side that comes out of the key switch,,Make sure you have power going in and coming out..If no power out then suspect bad key switch...

Check your fuel petcock, check the vacuum hose to the petcock. Make sure it is not cracked or not sealing well at each end. Hope this helps.

Take the spark plugs out of the engine and see if the engine turns over then. If it does but the engine will not turn over with the plugs in it, have the battery checked. Never assume a battery is good because it's not very old.
If the engine will not turn over with the spark plugs out, it sounds like may have serious problems. In this case, I'd consult a professional mechanic.
You can repost if you find out more information for us to work from. Good Luck

It sounds more like a fuel problem to me. If I had to guess, I'd say that for some reason your bike has started to run lean. The lean mixture is causing your engine to run hot. The heat from the is "perculating" the fuel in your float bowl and causing it not to start. I've seen it before on race cars.
The mixture on your bike may be running lean for any fo several reasons. You could have trash in one of the jets in the carb or you could have a vacuum leak. I'd put my money on the later. There is a hose that comes off the backside and feeds vacuum to the VOES switch. Make sure this hose is intact and doesn't have any cracks in it. I'd also replace the intake gaskets at the heads and the carb seal provided the carb is the original CV carb.
If the carb has been changed to something else, there could be other problems as well. Also, make sure your not running gasoline that has a greater than 10% ethanol mixture in it. The greater the percentage of ethanol (alcohol) the leaner the engine will run.
