Sometimes the bike does not start, No starter nothing when I push the starter button ? It starter when it wants to. When key is on there is lights, brake lights, everything. I wait for 20 min. To one hour then it starts.

Check start button. They can get dirty. Also all the safety switches that are required for the starter to operate. Does the headlight go out when you press the start button? Do you have a multimeter and the wiring diagram?

Like rambozo said also if your starting it in neutral with the kickstand down try pulling in the clutch lever and if it starts check the kickstand switch, you can just jump either the clutch switch or kickstand switch or both to check them of course be careful that your always in neutral when bypassing any safety switch.
