01 ninja 250 dies out after getting up to temp

hey guys, brand new to this forum and to the bike world.
i bought a 01 ninja 250 a couple months back and lately been having issues, i was riding home when the bike just stalled out and couldnt get it started again, i popped it up on the sidewalk and put the kick stand on and oil just started leaking out. traced where it was coming from and it was the seal behind the front sprocket. ordered a new seal and put it in the leaking has stopped and thought maybe the bike cutting out was linked somehow but it isnt. im lost of what to look for now, i have sprayed carb cleaner around the carbs while the bike is running to see if it could be a vacuum leak and nothing hapens, also open the gas cap to see if maybe its not venting properly and that doesnt seem to help either.
if anyone has any insight to this problem and could help that would be great. thanks in advance

How long exactly has it been since you've bought it? Does it have a hard time idling, when it was running? Was the bike sitting a long time before you bought it?

I purchased it in april and it had been sitting for a year but cleaned the carbs after i got it and it seemed to run good after that. I sometimes had to adjust the idle after the carbs were cleaned

Your title says, "01 ninja 250 dies out after getting up to temp"
Evidentlyyou suspect the bike of over heating.
Did the fan come on?
Were you riding in stop and go traffic?
How's your coolant level?
Did any warning lights come on?
How's your oil level/condition?

What is your idle speed set at? If all the other things check out fine, then it might be a fuel / venting issue. The fuel tank vents thru the cas gap. A clogged gas cap or stuck diaphragm can cause flow problems. If it does it again try cracking the gas cap or periodically do it while sitting at a light or before you start to ride and see what happens.

Your idle speed is too low. It should be 1300 (+/- 100).

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Have you checked the petcock or the fuel filter? There are small screens on the petcock that could be block with debris and there is also (should be) an inline filter on the carb.
