ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Why does a 2002 buell blast backfire through the carb when given throttle?


Hi, Anonymous popping on deceleration is usually caused by an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and the correct torque applied to the exhaust clamps where present. Coughing is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs of location by a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals. Spitting is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw set to lean.

My 2005 buel turns over bit wont start spits out carb its a 500


Check to see if it is sucking thru the carb. it should suck only - no blowing out of it. You could also check to make sure the carb is actually in the rubber boot that attaches it to the head - the blast likes to backfire and pop the carb out of the boot or pop the boot off the head. (REALLY COMMON). If it is sucking without any blowing, spray some fuel into the carb and see if it starts if it does - carb wasn\'t cleaned or has bad fuel/water in the gas. If it is blowing out of the carb you have internal engine woes that need the dealer to help you out. (stuck/bent valve)

Buell blast won't start without using starting fluid


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve is not seated or leaking.

I have a 2001 buel blast and i need to know if it has a oil saftey cut off when the oil gets low


There is no oil cutoff, if the oil is really low (and it needs to be really low), you will get the oil light on your dash.
The Blast does tend to burn oil, and if you are riding at highway speeds it will end up puking some oil into the crank breather tubes.

Backfiring and erratic idle speed , I bought it yesterday . . has been sitting for about a year, when warmed up would not idle down. not on the road yet so i can't take for a run.


Check the seals/gaskets at the intake manifolds. That is the main thing that would cause backfiring and erratic idle speeds. When air leaks in at that point the engine runs too lean and causes backfiring.
