After re-reading that, it sounds like you soft seized your kit. There is a break in procedure and it sounds like you were not following it. You have to run a richer oil mix, not go past half throttle for so many miles... You would have to look up the specifics for the kit you have, but I know going full throttle after only 30 miles is ... bad.
