Friggin mice! Need help

Hello. Haven't been on for a long time. Too long. Alot has happened since. I made some bad decisions and became an addict. Eventually went to rehab, 2 1/2yrs clean n sober. Life is alot different. Been off my ATVs, trying to get back into it. Thanx to any of you for not passing judgement. Not everyone is immune to the opioid epidemic.

Okaaaaay........ My problem......

Went to start my 2013 500autoEFI

Started briefly, then died/wouldn't restart

It's a no-no, but tried starting it holding
throttle open, no go

Started troubleshooting. Opened up air
box, element chewed to particles,
fiberglass insulation mix. Due to me
holding throttle open, the crap
got sucked all the way through
And into the head.

WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW?

I took it apart and blew all I could out, still won't start. Figured maybe run a compression check? Tear throttle body itself appart and clean? This is a horrible development. What you guys suggest? T.I.A.

Well now that you're better let's get to your atv issue. I would remove exhaust pipe off cylinder and vacuum it out just in case unburnt material got in there. Pull airbox and clean out good. You could pull plug and try vacuum from there too with a small enough tip.

Already did that. Still no start. I'm gonna try to learn how to check compression, but I wouldn't think soft material like that would hold a valve open? Anyways, idt I'm getting gas. Can the dealer clean and repair the throttle body?

I haven't checked since I pulled all the crap out. Before, it was dry and clean, like new.

I don't see this situation much different than someone "swamping" an ATV. They are repairable with something like this right? Lol. This thing looks like new yet. Just need some direction on what to do. Sux.

If anything all you’ve done is affected air flow. If you know you have cleaned the air intake system it may just be an old fuel in the line issue.
