1 some sort of paper
2 coil
3 socket, guessing at mult spline not hex
3 table, probably pine, definitely old as it's colour has darkened, possibly oblong might be square 99% 4 legs, probably intended for dinning from, not sure how that ended up under your seat though.

Usually motorbikes end up in bits on them, you have just started on that slippery slope, starts with a couple of bits, by next weekend the engine will be on it.

No I’m not I’m not an experienced rider it’s my first bike but every time I’ve tried to turn it on before the dashboard lights up and now it doesn’t I can’t even turn the key all the way round to the ignition it’s locked after one click and normally after the one click the dashboard lights up. I don’t wanna waste people’s time on here if your intrigued to laugh at me and also help with this issue let me know my snapchat is joshua_q07 or my Instagram is joshuaarmani_

If the key is stuck try some wd40 in the barrel and gently wriggle the key, don't go crazy as keys can be easily snapped.
Is the battery fully charged?

No one is laughing at you mate, but we do have a sense of humor.

Is the steering lock holding it locked have you tried slightly moving the bars?

👆 Yes definitely what Bender says. If there is pressure on the steering lock the key is difficult to turn. Move the handlebars as you try and turn the key.

The big item is a fuel pump for inside the petrol tank.
Check ebay for ZFR125 pump.
As for the chrome vanadium item I've no idea maybe it's from the Flux Capacitor.

Oh okay thanks for the response bro

So I just need to put that back and should be good 👍🏽

Don’t really want to pay for a mechanic at this ngl but if worse comes to worse and I can’t put that back I’ll call one 👊🏽

So I’m assuming the fuel pump thing is attached to a fuel pump at the station and used? What’s the actual use of that item? Lmao

Thanks for the help so far

Can the chrome vanadium be attached back without a mechanic?

You can use it anywhere you want!

Simply unscrew the plastic valve covers from your tyres, hold the pump against it (which ever end fits best) and switch it on. Presto, pumped up tyres!

Maybe... It's quite a specialised job.

There was a guy on here who was fiddling round with that kind of stuff but it proved far too complex.

If in doubt, you'd best get a properly qualified professional to do the job.

Okay I’ve done it but I’ve just realised I have these two orange signals at the back of my brike? If anyone can tell me what they’re used for it would greatly be appreciated as I’ve never had a bike before sorry for all the questions
