predator 6.5 hp stalls when loaded

I bought a 6.5 hp predator 4 stroke from harbor frieght. Nothing but good reviews. So heres my problem. Im installing this motor on a go cart. Motor starts and idles great. As soon as you press the accellerator it stalls. The only adjustment on the carb is the idle screw. Any suggestions.

I would look at the carburetor. Hopefully it's just a piece of trash blocking a jet or orifice. I have seen carburetors on cheap Chinese engines that were really bad (poor manufacturing) and replacing them was the only option.

Fixed it. I returned it. Got another one. Runs great. Well worth the hassel after seeing the smile on my daughters face as shes cruising around the yard.
