My 2005 buell blast starts but when I give it gas it bogs and stops running

This is just a simple clean the carb scenario. It probably needs a new carb boot too. They get old and air leak really quickly. This causes the little pops and backfires the bike develops. Of course if the carb isn't clean or has bad fuel in it it will do this every time.
MXoutlaw is WRONG on the mixture screw - it is 2.5 turns out from bottom as per the factory service manual. Check out buellridersonline . com for some more help. They have a pretty active blast section in thier forum.

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.

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!

I just purchased a 2003 blast and having trouble when starting it spits and sputters a little then it idles really really high....what do you think? Also, can you disconnect the automatic choke and hook a...

Buell Blasts have a known issue involving the carb boot. If the bike is a couple of years old check out the rubber spacer/conector which is betwwen the carb and the engine. Chances are that it is cracked and allowing air to enter direcly. This will cause your bike to sputter and have starting issues. Chck this out first and if it is not this then check the spark plug what color is the ceramic electrode and tip. This will tell you alot about what is going on inside the engine. The carb boot is a cheap fix less than 20 bucks. Good luck Brian

My 2003 Buell Blast 500cc has a problem with idling...I cleaned the ENTIRE carb and the jets also checked ALL hoses going to and from the engine and the carb, checked the spark plug, cleaned the gas, check...

Did you clean the jets so that you could see through them? Also have you checked the vacuum diaphragm? You get to it by taking off the top of the carb? It should be sealed and not leaking. could be the carb boot as well. Once I have more information I will try and assist you further
Thank you,

What could be wrong with a buell blast if it starts and idles fine but dosen't take any throttle. carb and jets are clean, has a new slide diaphram and intake manifold rubber coupler.

You either damaged the diaphram when you installed it. Or it is wedged in the carb so t cant raise. If you installed it backwards it will do the same thing too.
