Check fuel lines and the spark plug wires for cracks or rips. The plugs may have been damaged when you hit the tree. Check fuel pump connections for loose or broken connections. Sounds like no fuel to the plugs to keep it going. If you hit the tank, check the fuel pump operation was not damaged.
A couple of suggestions: Make sure that the gasket seal is good between carb and engine. I had a similar problem with my Cat 500 and found that the choke was sticking. I sprayed down the carb with Gunk and made sure all moving parts were not hanging up. I also put anti fogging oil in the gas to help clean jets and ports hard to clean with a carb rebuild.
Does your artic cat have a carb cable if so it will have an adjustment or a clamp on the cable where it attaches to the linkage..check make sure it is set to low idle..and your idle screw is adjusted to low idke..meaning cable adjusted to lowest possible position when the throttle is released..then make your final adjustment using you idle screw..good luck
well sounds like you need to clean air filter if that does not help i would go with your choke is sticking on if its a cable pull one make sure its pushing all the way back on carb check or if it is electronic one i would replace auto choke good luck
Has this ATV been sitting for a while? actually sounds like a fuel delivery system issue. make sure you have gas freely flowing to the carb.. then have a professional clean and set the carb. You are actually waiting in the carb to fill with gas during this time... the needle and seat need cleaning or replacing
