Honda TRX350 missing when hot

When I plow my yard with my Honda, the engine runs perfect for 20 minutes and its start to run to rich black smoke as if choke was on but choke is wide open. If I stop the engine for half an hour it is ok for another 20 minutes. I changed the plug and still the same. Could my problem be related to exhaust system blocked.

Thank for any assistance
Mike

Sounds like weak ignition. You've changed the plug, are you getting a good hot (blue) spark when it starts acting up? A faulty coil can run OK while cold, then fail when it gets hot.

The plugged exhaust isn't likely. A plugged air filter or a carb problem would run rich all the time. I would think in terms of the ignition.

I will ckeck to spark colour or quality when it is acting next time, most likely tonight after the snow storm.

Thank you for your reply

Sounds like rings might be worn, check comprestion wet and dry see what results from that.
