Question about Buell Motorcycles
I cover my buell blast, and even put duct tape over the fuel tank but water still somehow gets into the gas tank. How do I solve this? I do not have a garage and must park outside
If you cover your bike EVERY time and are still having issues - Find the SOB that is putting something in your tank for you. You can always look into getting a locking gas cap and key from a 2000 Buell M2 cyclone. Looks identical to the cap you have just has a keyhole in it. I would also try buying my fuel someplace else too. Could be getting water from the gas station. If you haven't drained the gas tank completely(pulled the Fuel valve off of the bottom of the tank - not just pulled the fuel line) you probably still have water in there.

If you did not completely disassemble the carb and remove all jets/emulsion tubes/needle valves then you did not clean the carb adequately. You could try adding either Seafoam, the Yamaha CARB-CL-EAN-ER, or Techron fuel system cleaner in an auxiliary gas tank and running the engine for a short while to ensure the mix gets into all the nooks and crannies. Let it sit for a couple hours to do the work, then drain out the float bowl, hook up the bike's gas tank and see what happens. Otherwise you need to remove, strip, clean, reassemble, and reinstall the carb.

make sure carb is cleaned properly, throttle cables adjusted properly, idle is set properly all of this iaw a buell service manual! Buell Blasts do not have a sump; the oil after it has warmed is the actual level; after it sits a few days the oil "sumps" into the crankcase and indicates a low or in your case a proper level. this is a common occurance on HDxl motors and buells. the proper way to check your oil is after the bike is warmed and either on the stand or upright and level depending on year and model. Refer to your owners manual or service manual. if carb is cleaned and adjusted properly investigate for intake leaks. main jet doesn't contribute to fuel delivery until about 2500+ rpm on the blast; if it is stalling before that point check slow jet; you will theoretically be checking/cleaning all jets and the vacuum piston/ diaphram. engines are engines, however all brands have specific nuances and should be worked on by make specific techs. if you are planning on doing your own work get a manual, you will be surprised how much you learn and how easy it will be....T
