How about the fuel filter? How about blowing air back into the tank to see if the tank has a clog in its bottom screen?

SOURCE: yamaha blaster runs but wont rev

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb.
Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

SOURCE: i can not get my yamaha blaster to idle have

Make sure you have no vacuum leaks and the idle screw is turn up. Then adjust the a/f ratio screw to highest idle, turn down the idle screw and repeat until a/f screw makes no change. At that point you set your idle speed.

SOURCE: engine will not idle when warm, hard to start

There is one screw that adjusts the revs,you can increase the engine revs and it should solve the idling problem.Be careful as there may be one for air mixture which could look similar..make sure you adjust the one for the revs only.If this does not solve your problem then let us know.

5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.

Yamaha blaster 2001

No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)

Yamaha blaster. yfs200 carb problem?

Hey Anon, sounds like you may have done something wrong when reassembling your Blaster... When you "cleaned" the carb, you may have reassembled it incorrectly.. This sounds serious!!.... this situation is difficult to diagnose on-line.. I wish you were near me.. . (North Alabama) .. I am a 40+ years Yamaha Factory tech... I could fix it...

What do I need to buy and do to tune up on a 2006 blaster that has not been started in about one year

1.spark plug
Transmission oil.
Brake fluid
chain lube
Air filter unless yours is cleanable and in good shape.
If its been sitting for one year probably you are going to need to clean the carburetor old gas will block your jets.

2006 yamaha v star 650 not getting air

Its seems like fuel starvation ....blow(compressed air) the main and primary jets of the carburator and recheck the float level.
Set the air-mixture screw too.
Standard procedure ..tighten it all the way in ....slowly making sure you go slow as not to damage the tip of the screw and then open it 2 and half turns plus or minus.
Hope this helps!

My yamaha blaster will start and idle once i press throttle in it dies and sounds weird like its missfiring or something

Your mid and or hi speed jets are plugged. Drain the fuel (tank and carb). Dissmantle the carb, remove the jets and clean them. (Or soak the in carb cleaner over night).

Fuel turns to varnish in just a few months.

good luck
