Need Blaster Help (falling flat on top end)


Recommended Posts

OK, I bought a blaster for my wife. It's in great shape but it falls flat early on top end. It seems the worst in 1st and 2nd gear. As you get up through the gears it seems to be a bit better. I have pulled the carb and cleaned it. It didn't help at all.

Can anyone tell me what the stock jet sizes are? Also, what should the mixture settings be for a bone stock Blaster? I am at 5000 feet in New Mexico

If anyone knows another reason, please speak up.

It's a 2001. What should the compression read? I have a tester just not a damn manual ! Anyone know where there is one online?

Thanks for the info on the airbox lid. This thing is in great shape. It just annoys the crap out of me that I can't get it in tune

My KFX seems to do fine at this altitude, just minor tweeking

I need to check the needle setting. I just pulled the carb apart and cleaned everything. Like a dumb as*, I didn't write any of the settings or jet sizes down before I reassembled it. I'll check the plug again too. I just went and replaced it when I bought the quad

Just out of curiosity, what should the compression read? I just want to check it.

my DAD is famous for the barrel chariot....

is this pick on r8 day?

by the way, it's off topic, so let's put it back on topic.

I've known Stuart since I lived in california, shortly after the dinosaurs died off. When the volcanoes cooled I moved to Oregon. I was having the exact same problem so I called him for advice. Here I am just passing on what he said. I have a lot more friends too.

For awhile there Toomey was talking about moving up here to be nearby Rob Muzzy as well as Powroll Ind. But I guess he changed his mind.

the TOOMEY B1 kit not only is the pipe, but jets, airfilter, instructions, lots more stuff. on mine we changed the main jet from 230 to 320 and lifted the needle one step. Also used the unifilter in the kit and left the airbox lid off. IT WORKED GREAT!

If you cant fidure it out, we can call Toomey industries and ask them- they are very nice about helping people and they have a pretty cool website too.

anubis mentioned tires and that's a good point: the stockers SAY 20 but they are so balloonish they are actually 22 inch. I used ITP 20" XCR on the back and they are noticeably shorter- that solved my gearing problem.

let us know how it goes.:wink:

I have a set of 20" Innova's ready to throw on it already. I was really surprised how well they worked and held up on my KFX so I bought a set for the Blaster. I have been working 12 hour shifts and get home when it's dark so, I haven't had a chance to pull the airbox lid just yet. I'm going to do it this weekend and see how it goes

      Thank for the add on quad crazy. I am new here and need some help with my atv. It’s a older Yamaha Timberwolf 250 that I purchased second hand from an person. I got it home ans started to look into it. He stated it needed a cdi box so I ordered one for it and a battery as well also a key switch cause it did not come with one. I put all the parts on it and when I hit the start button it just clicks and noting else. Thank you any help is appreciated.

      I was looking to buy a new ATV. 
      I was debating between Polaris sportsman 450 and Honda rancher.
      Polaris it a bit cheaper.
      But can you tell me which one will have more demand on the used market? Which one will keep it's value better?
      Let's say 3-5 years from now.

      I seem to have no resistance at all on the rear brake pedal and no rear brakes. They were pretty good before I removed the right side crank cover. In order to get to the lower bolts of the cover, I took a piece of baling wire and wired the pedal in the down position. I assume, that caused at least, part of the brake problem. I can't see where fluid came out but, I did have to add more fluid. Added the fluid but still no resistance to pedal. Should I try to bleed the rear brakes? Thanks

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      Okay, so I have a 2002 Rubicon 500…bought it last year and it sat for several months until I put a new rear axle in, FINALLY got that done and was super excited to finally have my wheeler going, just to notice a strong gas odor. Popped the seat off and sure enough, pouring gas from the carb overflow. Fast forward a few more weeks and get the new carb and get it in, no leak! Yay. Except now I have no spark. 😒 I’ve tried another plug and checked and am getting no power to the coil pack. I’ve read and read and mostly what I’ve found is ECU, which is fine…but I like to exhaust all avenues before buying the more expensive parts just because I don’t wanna spend the money and it have ended up being something simple that I overlooked because I was trying to rush. 😂 I don’t know if it’s relevant, but I read on another post that someone had similar issues with theirs and it was the sensor on the side of the carb, just a thought since this literally happened after I put the new carb on. It also displays “- -“ on the display screen where it should show the gear position.
