i don't know but your engine might be fried. If never got the exhaust header red hot even when going wide open for 2 hours. doesn't sound good.

:confused::xx:im thinkin this episode hear is a burned up clutch.what does your oil look and smell like,look for clutch trash in you oil, metal flakes and maybe pieces of the fiber too hopefully its just your plates id get new springs too since you heated them up so and hopefully your basket isnt grooved because itll start getting more expensive to fix!:confused::atv::cry:
