Pretty hard to diagnose this kinda thing, without more info, like, what did you already check?
Starter solenoid?
Loose battery terminals?
Loose main ground connection?
Are all the fuses good?
By saying "Won't start when it's cold" do you mean when the bike is cold or the weather?
Does it start normally in warm weather?
Will it push start?
Can you hear the fuel pump run?

cant locate a fuel ump there are no wires going to the fuel tank. the startere turns teh motors but it wont fire over when the motor is cold. its has fuel, fire and air all the electrical works this happens every time it gets cold outside.

My advice is to go see Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited.
You can ask anybody on here, there is not a more honest shop around. They are forum sponsors so give 'em a call.
