hey again!

my buddy was going to buy an atv and found a blaster.

not sure what year but its only kick start.

it has no compression so we will be working on it too!

so when were done both of us will have quads!

this project isnt so much making faster as it is just getting it going!

ill post pics of it soon..

its pretty nice..we are going to check the vin for years later this week.

he hasnt got it yet. but he got it for 500$!

its in nice shape body wise. no cracks in the plastic and everything.

lets hear some input on this one!

Is that all that's wrong, no compression? You can buy a top end rebuild kit pretty cheap. That plus one day of work and you're good.(not counting time to have it machined)

ok i dont knwo much about this but the kick start is like not having any like resistance.

you can push it down with like two fingers.

the piston is moving but it has no compression.

you think thats all thats wrong bot?

Your rings are shot. The rings are not springing outward, when this happens there is no way for it to make a complete seal. Buy a top end rebuild kit, take the cylinder to a machine shop and they will clean it up or resleave it. What ever needs to be done. Put it back together. It is that easy on my dirt bike anyways. Make sure the kit comes with rings and all the gaskets. The one for the CR500 cost $149.00 That would be my first guess. If anyone else has any other ideas, please step in!

i put a top in on a blaster about two years ago and had 80 bucks into.. a few hours and was breaking it in... and all blasters are kick start.... very easy to work on... if your not sure on what you are doing or its your first time going into the motor i would recommend that you get the service manual.. it will show you everything you need to know in detail... good luck man...

Lets say the parts are 80 bucks, they will probably charge you 4.5-5 hours for labor which is usually about 65 an hour. You do the math.

if you have and mech skills you can do it yourself.. it is very easy.. get the service manual and go at it.. just take your time and do things right.. you can buy the parts 5 times over for what they will charge you.. unless you take it to a ma and pa type place.. you know any back yard mechs that may be able to help you out...

Is there a decompressor on that engine?I've seen several on 4 strokes but I'm unfamiliar with the 2 strokes.I would think that if there is a decompressor on it and it was froze/broken spring/out of time that could contribute to the easy movement of the kickstarter.I found a site that has oem and generic(Clymer and Haynes)service manuals called Repair Manual Catalog Online - RepairManual.com I got an oem manual for my DVX for about $30 shipped in about a week and a half.Good luck
