    Just bought a used fr 125 tried starting it up and got nothing. Replaced the battery checked all the wires im thinking its either the starter or the ignition coil. Any thoughts?

    The starter is prone to vibration breaking the electrical leads going to the bushings.  The design IMO is poorly engineered as the lead is soldered at a right angle to the way the bushing moves and that stresses the solder connection.  Its a fairly simple fix – starter rebuild kit is cost effective and it takes about 30 minutes.  Most guys racing will carry a back-up starter.

    Great vid if you go the rebuild route: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=W-1ftV1dMNg
