2006 LT80 Problems

I have a 2006 LT80.. Put a brand new battery in it and a brand new OEM Carb on it. It start and idles fine on choke. As soon as you take the choke off it dies..Idle screw doesnt make a difference either. It will not rev up enough to even move either it just dies....I checked the compression and yes i held the throttle wide open, and im only getting about 50PSI..The pressure also doesnt hold it just imeditaly just drops off to 0. gauge is good works fine on others. ANy suggestions before taking the top end apart and putting piston and rings in it? ALso has new reeds...

You certainly need compression. Either top end or base seals, but sounds like rings or head gasket the way it's bleeding off on you.
