Purchased bike a few weeks ago. Initially started right up with one push of starter button and ran excellent. Let sit for a few days and now doesn’t want to start. Got it started once last night with kickstart and took a few laps. Only right side getting hot. Fuel flow is good. Not sure about spark plugs as I’m I experienced. Looking for help.

Hmmm... does the fact that you had to kickstart it mean the battery was down after sitting a few days? If so, that alone could be your problem - these bikes had marginal charging systems from the factory and if the battery is low enough or on its way out, the charging system doesn't put out enough to make up for the lost battery voltage to the coils. Even with a good battery they have to be revved above 3000 rpm or so to break even and not discharge
