Hi, Alex and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Hi, Bobturner204 your bike starts great when cold but once it reaches operating temperature and the engine is shut off for a few minutes then you try to restart it and it will turn over but will not fire or it doesn't do anything, the usual suspects are:
1. When electronics get hot they build up resistance then stop working. It might be an ignition coil, stator, CDI unit etc. First, you must find out if the spark dies out. When the bike won't start, pull a plug wire off, stick a new spark plug in the end and ground the threads on bare metal while someone cranks the engine over. You should see a nice big blue spark between the spark plug gap. Incorrect spark plug gap will cause or contribute to a no start when hot issue.
2. Fuel Tuners have been known to cause this type of problem, disconnect it and see if resolves the issue.
3. Any engine management sensor could be faulty especially the ones that monitor temperature.
4. Gas cap not venting properly, improperly routed fuel lines they must always go down from the gas tank to the carburetor never in any kind of a loop this will cause a vapor lock. Clogged, bent, kinked, pinched or restricted carburetor vent lines will do the same.
5. Overhead camshaft valves adjusted too tight when cold, this will cause loss of compression when hot, except for pushrod engines they usually get looser when hot.

Follow the live lead from the battery it will go to the starter solenoid,disconnect it from the solenoid by undoing the bolt that holds it on then undo the other fat lead that goes to the starter motor then the smaller wires that are in a connected block.pull the solenoid off its rubber holder,that's it

You can use any oil rated for heavy duty, API SJ, SH, SG/CF
I have used Valvoline in my bikes with excellent results
use less expensive oil and change it more frequently,

You need to drain all the oil which by now is contaminated with gas.
You will also need to clean the carbs and get the float pin examined and better to get the carbs throughly cleaned also resetting the float to the required level in the float chamber.

Check the fuse, if ok. Check the wires.

These types of intermittent starting issues are commonly caused by electrical malfunctions in the starting circuit. First, check all electrical connections for corrosion and a good connection, and deal with any issues there.
If that checks out, next time it gives you a hot start problem check the battery voltage with a voltmeter or multimeter. You could also take the battery to an auto parts store where they'll check it for free. If the battery is good and it still won't start, it could be a bad starter solenoid. You *can* jump the solenoid with an insulated screwdriver, but be careful...they're pretty cheap to replace just to rule it out.
It could also be the starter itself. You could remove it and take it to a parts store to be bench tested.
If all of that checks out it could be something in a starter safety switch or other electronics, but generally a hot start is connections, battery, solenoid, or starter. Good luck!

Since the bike laid on its side all night,oil got into your top end and just needs to be run till all oil is cleared out.Clean the air box and anything connected to it.The breather from the crank case runs to the air box,that's why there's oil in it.Should only be a fine mist when running.This is the bottom ends only way to breathe,piston goes up,pulls air in from breather hose.Piston goes down,makes pressure and has to have a means to releave that pressure from the cases.This is how the bulk of bigger bikes are set up to opperate.Just laying on it's side for any length of time won't hurt anything other than what I just said.Takes a bit of time for it to finally clear all oil from tha breather system,and you'll have to change your plugs a coupl of times.Use NGK's that burn oil.

it must be a carburator flouting valve leaking

VL125's only have one air filter on the left hand side. The right hand side is blanked off and has no inlet so it does not need a filter.
You will not need to change it straight away, you can clean it using hot water with washing up liquid, careful not to wring it out, just squeeze it repeatedly. Then once it is clean, rinse it out with clean water until there is no soap left in it, then dry it completely, then dip it in engine oil squeeze the drips out so it is moist but not wet......and chuck it back in! :)
No hassle at all once you've done it once, I do it every week!

Muffler putty, no. If you have it off, take it to the local welder. They can tell you if it is fixable. Usually your best bet is to just spend the money and order a new original equipment replacement part (if a good salvage/used part is not available. Be sure to replace the exhaust gasket in the head when you put the pipe back on. EBAY may be a good source of a good used head pipe.

Sounds like it got a little dirt in the carb and was blocking a fuel jet. As the engine runs OK on the idel jet but thwe main had something in it, As you reved the engine it was too lean as the jey was clogged but the lean engine backfired and the resulting pop dislodged the dirt and now everything is back to normal. being careful where you get your fuel and cleaning the filter screen in the gas tank and any inline filters may help. If your bike sits for a long time it's a good idea to fill it all the way up before you park it. of course it does'nt always work out this way and as the gas evoraperates it'll leave deposits in the fuel lines and carborater and as these get washed up with the freash gas it can get stuck in things. The dried fuel will dissolve in the freash gas, and the bike will go back to normal.
