Hi and welcome to the site,

Check / replace the 20A main fuse. It would be inside the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the red cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Buell Blast 2000 -problem starting the bike -

That's NOT A KNOWN PROBLEM. He unloaded HIS PROBLEM ON YOU. The best I can figure is that the engine is looking for a ELECTRICAL GROUND and finding one through the cluch cable(only reason it gets hot). Check the battery terminals and cables. Make sure they are clean and TIGHT. Check the engine mount on the front of the motor near the neck of the bike and make sure NONE of the bolts are stripped or vibrated loose or missing. Check to see if there is a ground cable/strap that comes off of the frame and goes to the motor too. Look under the gastank for that one.

Bike will not start or stay running on a full charge battery/bought brand new battery, still same promblem,jump bike off,will crank ,ride bike for 30 min. park bike, leave bike running,lights start's to...

sounds like the problem is your battery is not charging when you are riding. The most common cause is a faulty regulator / rectifier. Contact a motorcycle wreckers for these parts, or your yamaha dealer.
Easy way to test is, when your bike is running, and the lights start to dim, before the bike shuts down, using a volt meter, test the voltage at the battery terminals, should be about 14V. If faulty rectifier,no charge going in to your battery, then the reading will be low, about only a few volts. If you dont have a volt meter, then any mechanic shop can do this test for you. best to have this done before buying any parts.
