hey guys i bought a 400ex blown up that was already tore down and the guy didnt have money or the know how to put it back together... but a new clutch in it,11:1 piston, sparks key, new stock head and valves, new frame...anyways.. the thing wont start with the starter... it will start fine and easy if i push start it. it runs fine too once its started... anyways i have a stock exhuast on it still and idk what jetting is in it.. but i was anxious to see if it ran...anyways broke it in..and have rode it like 4 times or so.. the battery also wont charge while its running.. it could be a bad battery i have no idea what shape it was in when i got it.like i said it was already tore down and dont know the old owner or have his number.. so what do you guys think? probably jetting and its cold out for the starting issue. what should i do..should i go up wiht the main and take the pilot jet to like a 40... is the stock needle alright??? never had a 400, could a big factor be the fact i have the stock exhuast on it stil or does that not really matter.....but now what about the battery not charging? bad battery or stator or whats your opinion on this... plz give me any ideas you have.. throw everything out there..
thanks a bunch

Check for a after market ign box.Can cause both problems.A (big gun)for example ign box wont start unless it has 12v while cranking.Try jumper cables from a good 12v battery & see if it starts-if so the battery is most likely bad.Jetting-I have a white bros slip on & holes in air box lid,foam filter-the only change I made is the main jet to a 160 & adjusted the air /fuel screw out until the decel pop was gone Runs Perfect!!!!
