Question about 1983 Yamaha XJ 650
Hi and welcome to the site,
Initially, by "won\'t kick over", do you mean the starter will not turn? If yes, check the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.
If on the other hand, the starter will spin but engine will not catch, then check for presence of spark on the plugs.
Good luck and thank you for asking.
