    What do you mean you did the repower kit on it? Wasn't it under warranty if less than a year old? Did you seize it with straight gas or something?

    it runs at idle but the moment i give it ant throttle it shuts down.
    it has a pe-200 carb on it since some moron stole the one it came with.
    (Repower kit. air filter gas filter and plug tune up kit.)

    Did you check the screen in the muffler or the exhaust port?

    the Florida heat doesn't help on thees 2 cycle, two things i had trouble with also were,the coil went bad (14 month) and the diaphram in the carb. but like said before its still under warranty.

    I thought you meant a short block kit. Did you buy it new from a dealer? If so, take it back.
    You may want to post this question in the mechanics forum for more answers quickly.
    Also, how was it running before you put the new filters and plug in it?
    Check the gap on the plug?
