Why does my 14 1/2 hp briggs and stratton riding mower muffler glow red after 2 min running..runs ok..just glowing red muffler.

Possible bad exhaust valve would allow burning fuel to enter muffler.
If you could do a compression test it would indicate that one cylinder is low.

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.

not starving fuel but "flooding out" and putting unburnt fuel in the exhaust system which ignites and damages mufflers and cat converters
check for excessive fuel pressure or bad /leaking injectors

What a funny set of events.Of course the tail pipe is clear(you would have checked that)The only other thing it might be is the cat/converter is blocked.New muffler is allowing a heap of air through and it suddenly clears and the bang.They do block up so it may be worth getting it checked.Hope this helps

Hot muffler

You got a couple of geniuses answering your questions. When he says it is getting red hot, he means that it is glowing red. Hot air passing through the muffler from a normal running machine does not make it get red hot, mowerman. And there are more reasons then the 2 you list mrfixit. The likely problem is your jets in the carb. It sounds like it is running to rich. Play with the little screw on the carb a bit. I think you would have to turn it in a bit. Wish you luck.
