Sometimes it just dies

08 wr450f 1850ks- I've had it for 250ks
Not sure if it's got ais
Air box would be stock I assume
Has been jetted (don't know what to)
Grey wire hasn't been touched
Took the baffle and pee shooter out before the ride
Any suggestions or starting point would be great!

Time for a re-tune
You need to uncork and rejet, and while you are in there, service the entire carb.
There are tons of posts on the subject of jetting; read the FAQ section or search.
Follow this for carb service. Do it all:

How dirty is the air cleaner? Just curious as it sounds like you have not even looked into the air box yet. If it is real dirty, cause previous owner did not clean it often, it stands to reason carb could be dirty as well.
I once had a bike that would run till real hot and then it would stop for a few minutes like you mentioned. Turned out it had a bad CDI and when it got real hot it would quit till the box cooled down. USUALLY when they go that is it....but sometimes they can do weird stuff.

You might try puling the petcock out of the tank, opening it up to on, blowing some compressed air backwards through it to see if it will clean out
any garbage that might be plugging it up and then going to reserve and doing it again.
I would also try to look into tank while you have it off and the petcock out and see if there is any junk floating around in it just to be sure it is clean too.

Yeh got it under control now boys hahaha
It was clogged up!
being that you are from Australia, I figure it must have been some venomous snake or poisonous spider or something like that clogging the petcock, right?
