My 07 trx 400 ex ad less then 50 hours overall when it was involve in a collision with a UTV,, that end up pounding into the left side nurf bar, a bend section of the nurf bar broke the stator/ flywheel casing,,,,
After aprox’ 4 to 5 weeks I have start taking it apart in order to asses the damage, I have replaced the casing, (Using the existing stator) checked for any damage to the flywheel to make sure that it as no wobble,,
I have also removed the old gas clean the carb, Verifying that the main & pilot jets are all clear including the passage ways, new spark plug (as a good spark),
Upon completing all the above and trying to start the unit (Chock on & no air filter/box) it will start for a short seconds & as I try to get the chock ½ way back with continue holding the accelerator open a bit ,,
The engine would not stay on (I have checked & re checked the pilot jet), as this issue can be caused by
The stator be damaged??? from the impact ??

Welcome to the Forum/Family!
I am not sure on your issue. It could be anything. I would assume its a carb issue.
With a collision who knows. I will look for futher info on this and see what I can come up with.
You need to put the air box (back on it).it's getting way to much air without a box or filter.
