SOURCE: starts good cold with choke runs bogy until fully

You might be too rich on the pilot jet. (Too large)
Run it for a minute with the choke on, then shut the choke off, and let it run with just a little thrttle till it's warm. If it doesn't "clear" up, your jetting may be off. (The pilot does idle) Pull the plug to see what color it is. Black is too rich. (Too large of a jet)

Why will a suzuki 125 intruder not start when hot

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!

Everytime i pull the clutch in on my suuki rm 125 and go to put it into first gear it just stalls as if i dont have the clutch pulled in can you help

You may simply just need to adjust your clutch cable. Make sure it feels like your pulling on something, there should be some resistance. Since you'll be adjusting it while the plates are cold you need to leave some free play in the lever or when your clutch pack gets hot it will start slipping and you'll end up with a smoked clutch. What I mean is grab the lever and pull it in until you start feeling resistance and then adjust it our until there is maybe a quarter inch of free play. Hope it helps. If its not that then you've got some internal problems with your plates and fibers not separating correctly.

My bike sometimes starts and sometimes will not. It always tries but it seems like it just will not turn over sometimes. It happens when it is hot or cold with no reason. I have never been stuck, I just...

Try putting the bike in gear when this happens and rock it until you reposition the pistons, then hit your starter and see what happens. ( If you are up against the compression stroke, then you wait a few seconds it gives it time to bleed down the compression.)

How do i set my suzuki rm 125 carb to the right setting and does any 1 know what the setting should be please thanks graham

Turn the air screw and throttle screw all the way inward. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. The carb is now set back to factory specs assuming no one has changed out the main jet or played with the float level..

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
