1999 Yamaha Blaster Brakes Locked


Recommended Posts

Ok, I got the brakes fixed. They work great. The next problem is I let my friend mess with while I was at school. He did some cleaning and light service work like greased the front end and cleaned the K & N. Thats is were my problem is now. He cleaned the filter then apparently rode it before the filter was dry, and now it wont start. Is it just a simple carb clean to get it going again, or is it worse than that? He said he just rode it up and down the street like twice then parked it. Let me know guys. Thanks.

a 'little' water should make it bark and snort, but not quit. remove the filter and see if it goes. If not, pull the plug and put your thimb over the hole, kick it- see if you have good compression. It should easily push your thumb off the hole. While the plug is out, hook it to the wire, lay it on the head and kick it- look for a nice blue spark.

Make sure your fuel is new and turned on.

If you have compression, spark and fuel it should start.

It may not be the air filter at all.

Let us know

Got it. I took the filter off and let it set over night. While I was at it I tore the carb apart and cleaned it. Put it back together, kicked it once and it started. I love it when things work like they are supposed to. Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Marc
