    Is that what you would recommend? I haven't checked it yet but from what I've been told that's what it could be. Could that cause the carburetor to not pump the fuel from the tank? Where would i get a Rocker box gasket? Harley?

The Buell has a Harley Engine and once the covers are removed the engine is quite straight forward. I suspect the rocker gasket is leaking. Once the engine covers have been removed, repair will be obvious.

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

Take your fuel cap off and smell. Is it gasoline or diesel fuel in the tank? Don't laugh or think I'm crazy. I've seen it done plenty of times when a service station does not change the color the pump handle covers.

If it is indeed gasoline, it may have water in it.

Your first stop should be to AmericanSportbike.com, they sell the service manual, and possibly the gaskets too (Might need to call). Changing the gasket isn't hard, it will just be time consuming with all the disassembly, and the service manual will make sure you do it correctly. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2010 Buell Blast starts but stalls after about 15 seconds

From the sounds of that I would say FIRST get a new battery!
The stalling problem sounds to me like the carb needs to be cleaned!

2000 Buell Blast runs great around town. Freeway speeds runs for 3 to 5 miles then out of nowhere dies. Acts like it's running out of fuel then dies. I have pulled the carb and cleaned the jets. C


If it starts up after sitting for a few minutes, (like 2 or 3) it could have a plugged fuel filter or the gas tank strainer built into the fuel valve could be plugged too. Drain the gastank anyway and change the gas with fresh. can't hurt. If it takes 15-30 minutes or after the bike cools some I would look at an ignition coil. Check to see if it has spark next time it quits.
