I had a similar deal with my sons LT. Turned out that it had a galled piston. There wasn't alot of riding time on the motor before that. He was riding one minute and then it just shut down like it ran out of gas. I replaced everything before I decided to tear it down and look to see. Good Luck.

Lets try the 2 finger hand choke on it. Put 2 fingers in front of the carb and try.
Ya new piston and rings, but are they sealing enough to produce compression? Maybe a squirt of oil in the plug hole is warranted next.
Duct tape that plug cap down to elimate it from popping off.
I've seen a plug not fire under compression also.
