I have a 94 yz250 has plenty of power but is spitting oil and after about 20 min of riding goes dead but will crank back up right after. doesnt do it if I ajust the carb to run rich.

Spitting oil indicates that it is running rich. It could be down on compression which will cause it to run rich. The rings don't last forever in these bikes and need to be changed every once in a while to restore proper operation.

I am betting you are turning the air screw to "adjust" it to run rich as you stated. This screw only effects the lower RPM - it is actually a fine tuning screw to adjust the low end - specifically the pilot and needle jet. It has very limited effect on the jetting above maybe 1/2 throttle. The proper way to alter the way the carb acts is to physically change the jets in the carb. The pilot is for lower end performance, the needle is for the lower-mid range and the main is for mid to mostly upper RPM range. The float level also plays into all this.

To attempt to answer your problem - it could be that your spark plug is incapable of firing once it gets overheated. An overly rich mix will prevent it from doing it's job also and can burn a plug out. Try replacing it with a fresh plug and you might want to clean your air filter and check your compression. You should have at least 150PSI. I've seen bikes run with as little as 95PSI but they run poorly and are hard to start.

Good luck!

I have a 2000 yzf 600 it has dynojet kit stage1 and d&d exhaust. It idols good, but after 2000 rpm's to 4000 rpm's, it cuts out and kinda flutters. After that it runs great up to 13000...

Get your bike set up on a rolling road (Dyno) this should cure this problem. Whenever you modify the induction or exhaust system on a production Engine system there will be a compromise. Manufacturers set up these systems to be optimised in all conditions, this will mean less power or torque in certain parts of the rev range.
