Starts but then stops after 30 seconds

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
15. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.

SOURCE: yz 250 wont kick start
To get you right there i believe it should read as 'jump' start and not 'bump' start ...:-)
Well the problem could be with the battery, is it a maintenance free (dry) or is it a wet 0ne (uses sulphuric acid specific gravity 1250).
( 1) How old is the battery?
( 2) If its a wet one ,check the specific gravity of the acid in it, if its low thn charge it.You may hve to add or top up to its required level , if so thn use distilled water only !
( 3) If the battery is more thn 17months old ...replace it.
( 4) Its not bad to get the charging rate of your bike to make sure that it is working properly as required.
I hope this will help.

check your compression I had a 94 yz that done that when i checked the compression it was really low so I put new rings on the piston and that's all it took to bring her back to life
