Question about 2007 Buell Blast

1 Answer

Buell blast doesn't always start after running

Hey Y'all, My bike is great but it decides when it wants to start up. The battery is good & it had a full tune up last summer. I can get it started if I spend some time wiggling the wire that goes from the ignition to the start button. It definitely starts at the ignition and leads to something at the right handle - I'm guessing the starter. Could this just be a faulty wire? Is this something a novice can fix? Should I save myself the headache and drag it to the shop? The isn't a repair shop nearby so it's always a hassle & time consuming dealing with my bike. One day the wiggle trick will stop working so I'd like to repair it. Thanks for your time.

Yes, it sounds like there is a lose wire or connection. If you can get to these wires and connections, check them for bad connections, loose connections, etc on the switches. Sometimes the contacts on the switches where the wires attach become corroded, or the terminals on the wires become corroded or loosen up, making poor contact.

SOURCE: 2004 Buell XB12S Ignition Fuse Always Blows

I assume you've got the right amperage of fuse in there? Your starter may be starting to fail, and drawing more current than usual when it attempts to start the engine. It's also possible that bad bearings or some other internal problem is creating more friction inside the engine than normal, thus making the starter work harder.

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

SOURCE: im not sure how to replace my starter relay on my

. The relay is attached to relay connector located to the right of
the battery underneath the seat.
Pull relay from relay block.
. Connect positive battery lead to the 86 terminal.
. Connect negative battery lead to the 85 terminal to
energize relay.
. Check for continuity between the 30 and 87 terminals.
A good relay shows continuity (continuity tester
lamp “on” or a zero ohm reading on the ohmmeter).

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.

Buell Blast electrical problem


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.
