did i blow my engine?

got a fan cooled arctic cat cougar that i was taking for a quick spin in the yard, i left the choke half on and went full throttle for maybe 50 yards. now when i try to start it, i have gotten two backfires. checked the plugs, running rich- oily. but no metal shards on the plugs. could i have really screwed myself over here? PLEASE HELP ME

Re: did i blow my engine?

Sounds like you have fouled plugs. Replace both plugs then give it a try. You shouldn't blow your motor by running it with the choke half on.
