new to the site looking for some help

I am new to the site and wr's in general, i have worked on banshees most of my life and have decided to switch over to the 4 strokes.
I just picked up a 2001 WR426 all stock except for a FMF Q series pipe, it ran great and as soon as i got home i can ride it down the road and then it dies, it will start back up, but as soon as i hit high RPM's it wants to die right after.
I have done the research on the site and have come down to the jetting is off (stock jetting right now) or possibly the timing is off. I havent really found anyone else with the same symptoms as me so just seeking some advice maybe a point in the right direction.

When you cleaned the carb did you remove the float and the needle valve as there may be something stuck in there also I have seen that before.
With the carb on the bike and the gas on with the drain on the bowl open will the gas keep flowing into a container (quick check for petcock). Also check the stopper. If you rule out these items then we can help you to dig a little deeper.
