Check the kill switch. If it ran recently then you must have a loose wire somewhere.

Do I mix the oil and gas together and pour it in the gas tank or do I pour the gas in the tank and the waverunner mix's the oil and gas together?

Mix the oil and gas together first.
Or you can add some gas into tank, then add some oil, then add more gas, then bit more oil ... so oil-gas mixture is uniform.

I have a yamaha triple 1100 and when I hit the button just a clic

You have a bad connection either at the battery terminals or the starter terminal. If the battery is new and fully charged and was not accidently drained overnight by another power source,then a thorough inspection of battery connections is needed. Not much else to cause this primary starting circuit problem,other than the starter itself.

We have a mercury 60 2stroke outboard engine and nothing happens when you turn the key to start it

go through the basics first: is the kill switch on, battery switch on, battery charged, are the battery cables clean? if not these then most likely the starter solenoid or the key switch itself

II have a waverunner jp 1200 97 and did not startet and i took the battery and now the clock asked for a code

If you did not previously have a security code set, you will need to set one at this time. It is an easy procedure. First, open the front hatch and remove the storage trunk. Find the group of wires coming out of the handlebar assembly. In that group, locate the blue connector with only one wire in it and disconnect it. Now, look at your multi function meter (speedo/tach), you should see the red warning light at the top between the two gauges lit. Hit and hold the mode button until you see the word "CODE" on the right gauge. At this point, enter any 4 letters you want as your security code by using the letter buttons on the right side of the MF meter. You should see them taking up each of the 4 blank lines as you enter each letter. After you have entered your 4 letters, re-connect the blue connector, put the trunk back in and close the hatch. Now your waverunner should start. If it does not, hit and hold your mode button till it says CODE on the right gauge again, and enter the same letters in the same order that you stored them, now it should say START. Hit the start button (with the safety lanyard in of course) and your engine should crank!

2007 FX Waverunner 1100, turning left the engine dies for no reason. It will restart but you must hold the idle high or it will die. Holding full throttle the engine will speed up and slow by 1000 RPM...

First, I'd check the routing on your throttle cable. make sure that at left and right turn, it has slack and no tight spots. Assuming your fuel stystem is clean, that pretty much leaves a ground/short problem somewhere. The fact that it happens at left turn tells me it's in the wiring that routes through the controls- perhaps the kill switch wiring. Something somewhere has rubbed the insulation off the wiring, and it's being moved when you turn left, so it shorts against metal. This will be the same metal point that rubbed it raw.
A. Check the throttle cable routing. Move the bars back and forth, and watch for a tight spot.
B. Check your wirinig harness from the bars to the main wiring harness, and look for signs of rubbing or wear.
