sound like your needle and seat are wore out in your carb sucking gas threw the main
killing it on the bottom end one way to check is to lower your needle all the way down and see if that doesnt improve it somewhat
1st screw your mixture screw all the way in and see if it will still idle if it does i would say it was wore for sure your needle and seat that is

Check the spark when the bike stalls, if it looks weak compared to when the bike is stone cold you could have yourself an intermittent stator problem. Pulse generators dont often fail on XR's. Failing that give the airfilter/carb a good cleanout and try again!

mixture needle first screw it in all the way see if it idles its the little screw on the bottom in front of the bowl
if it idles with it in i would say buy a new needle and seat thats the one with the clip in the center
this is how i trouble shot mine there are no specs for the needle and seat that i could find
this is saying that the bike will run fine above the transfer from the low speed side to the main side if you know what i mean
if the bike wont idle with the mixture screw in then lower the needle by raising the clip on the needle
hope this is helping you a little carb gave me a little trouble and i had to figure this out myself lots of time spent in the carb department and its a pain in the butt to get on and off to do this
