Take the round cover off the right side of the cam cover above the oil filter and try starting the bike - it has a small red led that flashes every time it sparks. if it doesn't flash - change it. it is bad.

SOURCE: Blast High Beam Flasher Switch

including when the bike is running and in gear. Laps switched high or low. If I pull the switch out a bit I can see a spring behind it but that's it. Is there a trick to this switch I'm not finding? If it's broke is there any repair tips? you can replace the whole assembly find a guy who is electrically inclined to r&r the switch, or like most live without it and just flash folks manually by turning the hi beams on and off.,,,

There's a chance that the problem lies with the starter. This is the main motor that drives the engine up to a start. Starting Problems can be attributed to:
1. Poor contact with the starter armateur and carbon brush
2. Fuse (usually 20 amps) connected to the positive terminal going to the starter motor. Check if this ain't broke.

3. Starter switch not making proper contact. Spray a little WD-40 on the starter switch, it may be rusted.

....... let me know if any of these fail. I'd be glad to provide more ideas.

. 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).

SOURCE: Fuel pump noise 2005 Buell xb9sx

That is the fuel pump doing its job of pumping. If it stops making noise, it stopped pumping, and no gas is getting into your motor. Your bike will not run without a running fuel pump. :)

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.

Where can I find an ignition coil for a 2001 Buell Blast?


Check the ignition module behind the round plastic cover on the right side of the engine. Pull the cover off - the module has a small red led that flashes when the bike is cranked or runs. if it doesn't flash either the fuse for it is bad or the module is bad. I would check this first as it is a EASY test and takes 2 minutes to do. If you need parts - Harley Davidson still sells both the coil and the module.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. A severely drained battery.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Your carburetor is dirty and needs to be serviced. take it to a shop to have them clean it and flush all of the bad fuel and water out of your gastank(The reason for the dirty carb).

2000 Buell Blast will not turn over


You have fuel in the tank, but is the float bowl full? Loosen the bowl drain, see if ya got gas. All the new bikes have vacuum operated fuel petcocks, and it takes forever in the spring to crank em long enough to fill the bowl. Take the line off the petcock, fill it with a small funnel with fuel, then put it back on, and fire it up.
