SOURCE: How do the straps go for the saddlebags on a 2003

I have a 2007 Blast. It really depends on the make of the saddle bags but assuming they are generic soft bags, here is the usual procedure.

Remove the seat. The connecting center straps for the bags will go under the seat and are held in place by the seat itself. Laying the straps over the top of the seat will allow them to shift and/or blow completely off the bike.

Adjust the straps so that the bags are as close to the edge of the seat while still hanging at a verticle angle. Too loose they hang too low. Too tight and they will compress around the bodywork of the tail section and reduce the usable space inside the bag or possibly damage the contents you fill it with. Once the seat is put back on that is usually enough to keep the straps secured from sliding front or back but depending on the placement of the bag straps you could place a strap behind a d-ring peg to keep the bag from sliding down towards the front of the bike.

Usually you need to nothing more to secure the bags but depending on the bag itself there may be a strap you can anchor the bottom of each bag to the passenger peg or a strap that connects the two bags across the bottom of the bags. Just remember to NEVER anchor the bags to the swingarm. It may seem like a no brainer but you'd be surprised at how many people don't think that far ahead and do it anyway. LOL.

SOURCE: loose slack in my clutch cable in my 08 buell

Your clutch needs to be adjusted. Before you adjust it at the lever you must adjust the clutch itself.

On the primary cover is the clutch inspection cover just behind the driver footpeg bracket. Unfortunately to get to it you must remove the Y-bracket and it's a PITA. The nuts that hold it are in a tight space under the seat just below the base of the fuel tank. Before you remove the bracket completely, just loosen the nuts as far as you can without removing them. You may have enough play to pull the bracket out of the way of the clutch inspection cover.

3 allen head screws hold the inspection cover in place. Be careful not to damage the paper gasket. You should be able to reuse it but to be safe, get yourself an extra before performing the adjustment. It's cheap insurance.

With the cover off you will be able to see the face of the clutch pack. In the center is a stamped steel nut held in place with a spring. It is a type of lock nut that will keep the clutch from readjusting itself. Simply pull this out (nut & spring) and set it aside.

In the center you will now see a shaft with a slot in it. This is where you will make the clutch adjustment. Using a regular screw driver simply turn the shaft clockwise until it firmly seats. Do not crank it down hard! Snug it down once, back it out a turn, then snug it down again. Once snugged down, back it out only 1/4 turn.

Replace the lock nut and spring being careful not to tighten or loosen the adjustment you made any more than needed to get the nut to seat inside the clutch. Once the cover is in place the spring will press against the lock nut keeping it secured.

Make sure where the gasket sits is clean before replacing the gasket and inspection cover. Do nut over tighten the 3 screws that hold the cover. It is only aluminum that they are threading into.

Replace/tighten the Y-bracket for the pegs back into place. If you do not have small hands it might be a good idea to have a small-handed person available to assist you in getting the nuts back on the bracket bolts and hand tightened as much as possible for you.

Now that the clutchis adjusted, you can make adjustments to the cable itself to get the free play out of the clutch lever. The cable adjustment is made at the adjuster located roughly halfway between the lever and the bottom of the bike. It's covered by a rubber boot that keeps out dirt and moisture. Carefully pull the boot to expose the adjustment nuts. The clutch lever is considered properly adjusted when there is 1mm of play between the lever and where it hits the stop near the pivot bolt.

It's really an easy job but don't try to adjust it only at the cable. Adjusting the clutch pack itself it really a breeze and even your shifting should be a little smoother. Good luck! =)

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.
