wr kicks but wont run

any ideas what could be wrong?
The bike was running fine, got it home washed it then it wouldnt start.
left it a few days and it started first kick and ran for a minute or so till i shut it off. Loaded it up for another ride a week later, got there, geared up, kicked it and it started. Ran for a minuite on choke, then stalled.
Now it will give a quick kick when you kick it over, but dies straight away.
I have removed and cleaned the plug (it seems to have some spark from what i could see when i kicked it hard, no spark when pushing the lever with my hand), i have removed carby, blown out all jets and reinstalled, but still it is doing the same thing.
any ideas what else to check before i take it to a shop (i reallyd ont want to spend the $$)
It shows similar symptoms to a car with a blow ballast resistor, but im guessing bikes dont have them.
any suggestions appreciated.

I agree that it may be electrical as it started after a wash. will keep on investigating and let you know how i go.
