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 take it the Kymco 125 Stryker has the overhead cam engine either a Honda 125 or very similar?
O.k. if you look at the top of the engine just below the fuel tank you should be able to see a heavy wire going to a cap shaped a little like a Tobacco Smokers pipe it may steel shrouded or plastic? this could be obstructing the view of the Spark plug as it is in fact the plug cap that isolates the plug from water etc, if you carefully pull this upward in the direction of the fuel tank it should release showing the item you seek.
Hope this sorted it,
