Sounds like the battery you have in the bike has gone bad sence you have to jump start it all the time. And yes the bike will run bad cause the cdi need a good voltage to work correctly. Get new one and put in new asid in and put it on the charger till it is fully charged and you should be good to go.

Check the chassis wiring whe it enters the side cover on the ignition side of the engine. There is supposed to be a rubber grommet there. Soetimes that grommet gets kicked loose where is comes out of the side cover hole and the wires chafe to the point that they ground out the ignition module.
Also looks for bare wires under the gas tank around the ignition coil module. Everything your describing points to a chassis short to ground.
Also the problem can be in the handle grip with the kill switch or a bad kill switch.
It is probably time to break out the Ohm meter and start chasing wires.

Your plug may be firing in a fouled area. When I have a problem like this, I 1.change the plug. 2. Take the carb and have it cleaned in a sonic bath and my honda dealer(They are the only one with this cleaner in my area) for about $25. 3. Check to insure that the fuel mixture screw is set correctly(about 2.5 turns), and 4.clean the air filter or replace it.

Some people call this a ""cough stop"" assuming the bike is well tuned and nothing else is wrong ,
I use an upper cylnder lube in my wr450f called Moreys and it solves this, it also helps it start easier, I cant explain why, might not work for everyone, but its a cheap solution, hope it helps.
