if the water pump was working before draining all the fluids i would possibly rule out the pump failing. i do think it is very possible, while very common that there may need to be more coolant added. coolant needs to be added through the radiator cap, and a good practice is to run the cycle while the cap is off and add coolant accordingly. do this for a few minutes. cause likely what has happened is there was an air pocket when adding the coolant, and this can make is seem like enough was put in. but after the pump working it can cycle the water through and help expose those pockets.
hope this was helpful. thank you.

possible bad rings allowing excessive oil seep up and wash spark out on next fire. do a compression check, ck for proper spark, and fuel....hope this helps

measure voltage going to solenoid for power when you hit the start switch.... you should hear a small clicking sound coming from the solenoid .if no clicking... the solenoid might be going bad. maybe the starter ground wire is broken internally or its possible that you bought a defective starter...you might want to take the starter to a dealer or repair shop to insure it in good working order. the battery you have should be up to a minimum 12.6v 12v wont be enough! 13v is perfect so you"ll have to get it trickle charged up. Oh and before we go on any further, do you know how to push start a motorcycle?have you tried this yet maybe the engine cylinders is seized up from no oil lubrication...get back to me on this you need to know if the engine is seized-up! put in neutral run real fast along side of the bike then pull yourself on top of bike ,pull in the clutch push down into first gear the pop the clutch while you sit down on the seat at the same time. MAKE sure the key is on when you do this and also make sure the kill switch is set to run. if it starts then this is probably your problem ....not getting enough oil to keep it form seizing up...so turn off the engine quick...don't want any further damage. let me know how it turns out.

sounds like the fuel is being evaporated by the heat hence hard to start when hot, but when it cools down enough the fuel is not effected, check fuel filter & fuel pump pressure,
here is a manual to help.

this is definately a valve problem. The valves are worn and seated to deep in the head they are pulling through. get new a good condition head with valves or good used vales and have them fitted. I might have a head for you.
