heres the story,i got the enticer running last night and it would only run on half choke but would get up enough to engage the clutch and it would keep going!!so when i went out there to start it today it just kept backfiring and smoke would come out everywhere it could so i took off the muffler and tried it and it shot flames out of the exhaust manifold when it backfired but it sounded like it wanted to start!!so what is wrong please tell me so i can ride it!!we just got some snow!!

Because your running so rich, ("had to leave choke on half to get it to run",) your sending too much unburned gas out the exhaust. It builds up then you get the flameout. You really need to isolate your problem in the carburation and I think some of the other stuff will magically dissapear.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

Nothing is wrong dude you probably gotta drive it hard.Sometimes sleds carbon up if you let them warm up too long.then go for a slow ride.if it is not that you flooded it.
