Sounds like it's way too rich. You need to turn the low speed needle in 1/8th of a turn at a time until it gets better.

You replaced the motor? With a brand new motor? If so, did you break it in?

Lean it out just enough so that it stays running and go through the break in. After you run a few tanks through it, start leaning it more and more until it's right. There are several different methods to break in a motor. I suggest you research them and find what works best for you. I personally use the heat cycle method and it has worked great for me.

I was going to suggest the heat cycle method also. When in doubt, lean it out so you can reach your 200 degree mark. If you have a stand or some 2X4's handy, why not idle a couple tanks through since it sounds like you're still in the early, early stages.
