My sled won't go. It keeps flooding and after 2 pulls the plugs are soaked. I had a mechanic rebuild both carbs last night. The crankcase was full of fuel and we burnt most of it out with a propane torch through the plughole. He told me that if I could get it going and get it out on a trail it might burn out whatever is left but now it won't start at all and I don't want to dump any more fuel down the plughole becuse if the plugs are soaked then there is too much gas there already.
I could make it run before by priming it through the plughole and it would work good if I kept it revved up past about 3300, any lower and it would flood out and die and not go again until it dried out.

Check the fuel pump. I have seen two occasions were the fuel pump internals were worn out and allowed fuel to be pulled through the pump and into the case. Pull the vacuum line off the case and connect a vacuum pump. If you can pull fuel through this line, you have your answer.
