Why does my 31hp Kawi backfire when I start it and I mean a big backfire? Never did before this summer.

Fouled plugs maybe? Carb need adjusted?

Check choke function, for leaky head gasket, and for loose plug or plug wire.

A plugged carb circuit might cause some misfiring so maybe run some seafoam through if you don't find anything from the above to be the issue.
