Arctic Cat 300 idles fine, dies on throttle

I've got a 2002 Arctic Cat 300 4x4. I recently cleaned the carb and replaced all the jets and needle. I can get the ATV to idle fine but as soon as I give it gas it dies. I'm not really sure where to go next with it. I've tried searching for similar cases but people still suggest its dirty jets but like I mentioned, I purchased new. Only other thing I can really think of is to adjust the air/fuel screw beneath the carb (currently have it turned out 2 1/4 turns).

2 1/4 turns is factory setting for your 300. Make sure the vacuum piston is not ripped and seated properly.

Is there anyway to test the vacuum piston to see if it's working correctly? Or is the only option to visually inspect to check for rips?

Look at post # 14 in following thread link. Confirm diaphragm is seated and all is installed properly.
