Bike start but when it is normal working temp it cut out and struggle to start and don't pick up refs

Sounds like a carburator or fuel injector problem,,,If carburator the automatic choke's heat sensor is sticking...if injectors, the elec tronic pick-up for engine temp is faulty.

My bike wont start, changed the spark plug and fuel, it will bump start but then cut out again. any ideas?

Since it starts and thn cuts off, it shows tht there is sparks and some fuel do go through to the combustion chamber.
You may need to clean the carburator, theres no enough fuel flow to it and thus the none start and whn it does it cuts off!
Hope this helps!

The engine will run for 30 mins then cut out.

How do you temporarily resolve the problem Pete?
Do you re-charge the battery or ???
Does it still crank the engine over with the electric start while in the 'failed' state after the 30 min run, just not fire the engine?
Are you doing the spark test with the electric start or kick start?

If charging the battery makes it run OK again for the the 30 mins, that is indicator the charging system is bad and you are running in 'total loss' mode of the battery. When it becomes discharged there is insufficient power to run the bike. You may still have enough power to pass a spark test if tested briefly.

If you can measure the voltage across the battery when the bike is running, that would identify whether the charging system is good - you should get at least 13.5V at the battery.
If not, you may have a stator and/or regulator/rectifier failure.

I need to check the oil level in my 1985 Yamaha virargo 700 and when it starts all the oil disapears from the glass left side of the bike should it be full when the bike is runnung or when th ebike has...

this is normal. when the engine is running it drives the oil pump which then circulates the oil around the engine. this will empty the sight glass. to check the oil level switch off the engine and leave for 15 minutes. make sure the bike is on level ground and upright. this gives the oil time to drain back into the sump. hope this is helpful..

My bike wont start

I have the same problem and same model (2008 KTM Adventure 990 S) so injection, not carburator.
I didn't start the engine for three months. I bought a brand new battery. Lights, fuel pump and everything seemed to be ok at the first key turn. But when you try to turn it even more to definitely start the engine, ignition fails. I think the electric engine of the starter is not working properly.
I tried to start the engine driving down the slope and releasing the clutch in 2nd gear at aprox 30 km/h and it started successfully.
I left it idle until became hot (15 min aprox) and the turned it off.
however it didn't start again when trying the ignition button.
Any ideas?
