09 problem...please help save me some $$

First ride of the season today, went out for maybe 5 laps..she ran great, went to the truck...went out another 5 or so laps, ran great..then my third time out..it died on me half a lap in... i got it running, got another half lap in then died and wouldn't start...walked it back to the truck, and she started ok.
So I let it sit an hour..started up first kick..then same thing, half a lap in it died on me in a corner.. wouldn't start for nothing so had to walk it back in again. at that point i gave up and went home as it'd probably do the same thing again.
These bikes are so complicated. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe a bad fuel injector? or valves changing spec when it gets hot?(but the last time out it stayed cold during that half lap so i dont think that's the case) maybe a wiring issue with the cdi? (I don't have the cdi bracket so it's tied up with a shoelace to the frame but it's pretty secure.) I really have no idea here..it's so annoying I just want it to run!

Is the fuel filter at the pump inside the gas tank? do i have to remove the whole fuel pump to find the filter?

It ended up being a few worn wires that earthed out on my frame..that's why it would start and run fine until i hit a rough ground and would earth out, so id check all your wires before you spend any more cash mate..
Hope you get it fixed

I checked ebay..all those for 50 bucks are for 2005-2007 models. not one used one for 08 and above...400 bucks was a "deal" the guy gave me, basically saved me the tax.. theýre 359 on all the american oem websites so that's just what they cost new, I didn't have any other choice..
anyways, its not getting ANY spark at all, therefore wont even run for a few minutes now. I looked at all the wires under the gas tank and there are no obvious worn or grounded out wires. I guess back to the dealer it goes i'll check the primary coil myself first

Who said I couldn't strip the bike down the the frame or the motor and reassemble it?
ac717 is right..this isn't a CR 250... the electrical on these new bikes is the only thing that stumps me...and apparently my local suzuki dealer as well.
