Welcome to Quadcrazy @Guillaume Cliche That some implosion damage.  Have you had any backfires ? That reminds me of an old bike I had that the timing was off a bit and the valves were out of spec also.   The engine backfired and and did the same thing to my floats. I would start there and see if the timing is off. That would also cause an erratic idle.

I didn't mention it but i also rebuild the head at the machine shop with new valves set the timing correctly change the cam chain and put a new gasket kit for the top end and intake gasket. Is a bad fuel pump can cause that or a bad vacuum hose ?

Sounds like you did the right job! The only thing I could think of was the timing unless your onto something with the fuel pump.   But the floats imploded to me equal a huge suctioning condition which could be the result of a poor fuel condition I would guess as if the engine is starving for gas.

But have you heard any backfire or as if the engine farted? Lol bad choice of words but best way to describe it!  Like it kicked back in the opposite direction ?

Yes it looks like the engine is starving your not the first to tell me that and for the backfires the first time i changed the float i remember seeing one you think that it causes the float implode ? Well i think the next step would be the fuel pump or inspecting the vacuum hose

Agreed. Def look at the backfire thing.  As far as fuel pump definitely check the pressure as well as flow. Try to use a small gas  tank and hose and gravity feed it to see how it runs maybe ?

      What's a good size to start a 10 year old on?

      I'm trying to troubleshoot a starting issue. For a while, maybe a year sometimes I would hit the starter button and I'd hear a single loud click, but the starter wouldn't turn. Usually if I could pull the pull start or roll it in gear it would then start. (now I'm thinking that was coincidence) Now it only clicks. I tried to check what I could, battery is good, solenoid clicks strong, cleaned all connections (which were 80% clean anyway). I started thinking the starter wasn't spinning. I pulled it and it spins freely. The gear that it contacts in the engine-I can wiggle it maybe 1/16th to 1/8th inch back and forth. When I reinstall the starter I feel it jerk when I hit the button. I'm thinking maybe it's the starter clutch? It seems when there's a problem with them they usually just spin freely and don't engage at all. Is it possibly something is causing it to lock? I'm a bit lost now.

      Well been lurking for a couple years, figured its time to say hey! Been riding in MN since the early 80's been on just about anything and everything with a motor. If you are from the area hit me up! Currently riding a 2018 Sportsman XP 1000, but thinking of going to a General or possibly a Maverick Trail.

      So I’ve got a 2000 Honda 400ex absolutely love it!! I’ve had it for about a month, I ride with bruteforce 750’s, outlander 850’s and 1000 sxs’s and I was thinking of getting a trx450r carb and a full hmf exhaust. And probably doing the air box mod too, how much power would this give my 400? Just a little different or a big difference? Cuz if it’s not much of a different I’ll just stick with my dg slip on..... thanks!
