Bike keeps stalling off idle

I have an 07 250 XC-F with a recent new top end. It ran perfectly on the breakin ride but I brought it home, changed the oil (Spectro syn 20-50), cleaned the screens, and cleaned the air filter...and now it stalls when you goose it off throttle. I can't imagine what I could have done to mess it up. Anyone have any ideas? I'm at a total loss.


Spark plug cap

I did check that, it seems to be on tightly. It runs if I keep the revs up but if I goose it off idle it just quits. Ugh.

Just because it is tight dosent mean it is good. Could be damaged internally. Change it out. They are not very expensive
