Question about 2007 Buell Blast
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.

Sounds like fuel starvation...Check 4 kinks in fuel lineand/or dirt in petcock...replace any fuel filter u might find...did u gap ur plugs properly? run premium fuel and a 1/2 bottle of Sea Foam or Techroline thru the next 2 tanks of gas....Good luck to you friend....Tim

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.

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

Either fuel filter is clogged or air filter is clogged or carb/fuel injectors need to be thuroughly cleaned

A good relay shows continuity (continuity tester
