Looks like a small piece of dirt or rock got under the seal and rubbed the groove.
The choke needs to be pulled out to be off. Could be the tip over sensor or maybe just a kinked line on your fuel pump. You can take the pump out and see if your lines are smooth.

Did you go back to OEM Lever and perch? I've had problems with aftermarket levers or perch not having the correct pull ratio making it feel very stiff.

Are the engine mount bolts tight? Maybe check everything under the clutch cover and ignition cover. If not that, could be something in the bottom end or tranny?
I had some oil in there. Not a crazy amount but there was some.
Hey so I asked a guy at KTM and he said they are supposed to have some resistance. If you feel like yours are sticking very bad, you can do a whole tear down and see which part is sticking? I did it when I replaced my top end and had the .cylinder off. ... more »

T4 is just a step above normal pump gas, shouldn't effect your bike not starting. Hummm?
I can't believe I've put over 30 hours on the 125 already! Going to throw a new top end in and repaint the frame. Gotta get this thing all dialed and cleaned up before the 125 Dream Race.
