Is it running out of gas? backfire is caused by a lean condition. I'd check the fuel path from the tank to the carb and clean the carbs. could have something floating around in there occasionally blocking fuel flow.

Why does my ATV bog down and die when I keep the throttle wide open?

If you are lucky, you might just need new fuel filter and the fuel bowl cleaned out, and maybe new air filter. If not so lucky you need carburetor rebuilt. Backfire is usaully caused by engine running too lean ( too much air for the amount of fuel present). Fuel bowls get gunk in them and the fuel needles and fuel jets get varnished up. The accelerator pump gets worn out gaskets and/or bellows and doesn't give the right amount of fuel mist when you accelerate.

Full Choke is indicative of a motor starved for fuel

I would start with a compression test, also check the exhaust for obstructions or reduced flow. If all that looks good I'd check the flywheel key.
