If you've tried using a shot of aerostart, and it won't fire there are only two MAIN reasons for spark at the right time, or your valves are not sealing at the right time.

I hope this helps you, as with all problems, I wish I was there to experience what's happening.

Good luck, and thanks for letting us at help

My kia sportage keeps shutting down after i charge the battery-i did hear some squeaking before it had to be jumpstarted.Is this the alternator> ?

More than likely yes, especially if it is the original alternator. The squeaking that you are hearing is probably not the bearing that the pully rides on, but more likely the brushes inside the alternator have worn out and as those brushes circle the magnetic field that is where the electricity comes from (simple explanation but basicly the idea). If the brushes are warn, they wiill not generate a charge and therefore all of your cars electrical components run off of the battery. Alternators can be bench tested at most auto parts stores and are easy to remove if you want to confirm the problem. Usually one bolt holds it in place and is used to adjust belt tightness and another bolt pivots just oposite the first bolt and then there is a wire harness plug or 2. Takes 15-20 min usually to pull out and 5 min to test at the store and almost always free, if not go to another store. good luck

I am assuming the carb is in good order. Be sure the battery has a good charge and that the spark plug is giving a strong spark. So you have good fuel delivery and good spark, and the air cleaner should be pretty clean. The problem is usually flooding of the engine by twisting the throttle too much, too often. Each twist sends a shot of gas into the chamber. It is pretty easy to flood the engine.

take the battery in for a load test as it is not uncommon for new batteries to be faulty
have a auto / bike electrician check the electrics for a faulty relay /round leakage that is depleteing the battery

One suggestion wouild be to check the spark right after failure. You can buy in-line spark indicators that give you a visual light if you are getting spark. This way you could see if you are losing spark when the engine warms up. If your spark is good, you would want to check the compression after the engine is warmed up and quits. You should have at least 100# minimum.

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.
