Husq 125b starts great! & runs 5 min, exhaust glows cherry red hot and engine is now at 50% or less power. Exhaust is not clogged; fuel ratio is correct....???? :(

ignition timing is incorrect or valve timing (if 4 stroke) is off
ignition timing is too far retarded and if 4 stroke , the exhaust valve is staying open too long ( tappet clearance )
the indications are that there is compression flame escaping into the exhaust when it should be out

Catalytic converter

The exhaust downpipe is glowing red with heat?
To be honest, that may be fuel-air /and or cylinder head problem. A downpipe gets very hot, yes, but they don't glow red.

A faulty oxygen sensor can cause the catalytic converter to overheat - with disastrous results.

If you're not sure what you're doing don't mess around with things. get somebody who knows what they are doing to look at your car and give you an opinion

What would cause the elbow and manifold to get red hot in minutes on my 2004 Ski-doo elite under normal driving conditions? Could it have blockage in the muffler?

Blocked muffler will cause extreme reduction in power. When you say red hot, do you mean it glows red or it is very hot and you will burn your hand on it? The latter is normal, you cannot touch an exhaust system within a minute of running. Cherry red sounds abnormal. Engines putting out maximum power can have glowing manifolds but not average power. Make sure the timing is correct and do not use gasoline with an octane rating that is too high. Higher octane fuel burns slower. If it is still burning when the exhaust valve opens, it will continue to burn in the manifold. Use the gasoline recommended in the owners manual.

Exhaust glows red hot

That means you are sending raw fuel into the exhaust, likely due to severe misfire. That will destroy the Catalyst in short order too.

Hi, Sandy and the usual suspects are:
