Water in gas tank

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.

SOURCE: Buell blast is backfiring. Sat for 2 years so,

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.

SOURCE: 01 Buell blast starts but won't take gas

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

There isn't one unless someone installed one afterward. There is a in tank strainer that is built into the fuel valve on the bottom of the gastank tho - remove the valve and drain the gas out completely when you do this. DO NOT put the old gas back in the bike. Put fresh gas from the gas station in. the old fuel WILL HAVE WATER IN IT.

2001 buell blast hard to start cold must cover carb at first but starts easy after hot help?


Carburator needs to be serviced and fuel in tank needs to be removed and fresh gas needs to be used. Make sure you put the airbox cover back on - running without a air filter will damage your bike.

2000 Buell Blast will not turn over


You have fuel in the tank, but is the float bowl full? Loosen the bowl drain, see if ya got gas. All the new bikes have vacuum operated fuel petcocks, and it takes forever in the spring to crank em long enough to fill the bowl. Take the line off the petcock, fill it with a small funnel with fuel, then put it back on, and fire it up.
