It mainly dies while riding, and the way it stalls is like it runs out of gas. I took the carb out (what a pain that was) and am currently in the process of cleaning it. I will keep you all informed if this was or was not the problem.
I have an '05 WR450 that stalls when it gets hot. Just had the bike tuned-up, valves adjusted, the works, and it still stalls. It will start when it cools down for 10-15 min, but will stall again when it gets hot! Any suggestions?

Fact that it "behaves like its running out of gas" suggests its lean, likely caused by an air leak.

It was the carb. It just needed to be cleaned. Once it was cleaned, it now runs as good as new! Thanks for the advice!!!
Do these need to be cleaned often? Ive been riding mine every weekend for the last year and I assumed running fresh gas thru it regularly would keep it clean, what do you guys think? should I clean my carb for GP?
