If it doesn't turn over when you push start, but it does if you wiggle the key back and forth, it's probably the ignition switch. Try to isolate the problem by only doing one thing at a time, such as wiggling the key while it's in the on position, or pushing start several times. It might be the starter motor too, but that seems a less likely possibility if turning the key back and forth fixes it temporarily. The way to make sure would be to jump the ignition switch all together (hotwire it) to see if it always starts then. You should be able to find a wiring diagram to show you how to do this.
sir im sorry we lost connection if it has sat or had old gas in it drain the gas with the bowl drain brass screw on the bottom of carb if that does not work you need to pull the carb off and take the main jet out witch is the larger brass jet and run a small pieace of wire through it sometimes you can blow through it but hold it up to the light and make sure u can see through it if it is clear then you have a electircal problem those bikes have good motors but the electrical components leave sothing to be desired tyr the carb first and comment me back and well get it figured out when u take off the carb if u are unfamilar take pictures with a digital camera so you can remeber were everything goes let me know
