i can try the air idle screw at 2 easy enough.

did just have the plug out to check all that the other day. it is definitely firing because its pretty white... even with all the cranking over and not starting... its not caramel colored. which would mean lean...

im assuming you mean the diaphragm on the vacuum piston?

yes i mean it backfires at idle, but shows no sign of a problem if i was to actually go ride it. or even give it a little throttle. then it seems to run just fine with no noticable problems or backfires.

i tried adjusting the enricher as show in the video a day or 2 ago. can not get that thing to turn... afraid if i apply much more pressure things are going to start breaking...

i was looking at swapping the enricher from one of my other blasts, but havent exactly come across an easy way to reset the tps if i was to do that yet.

Try some WD40 to set in, then dry off and then try - mine was very resistant as well - and I thought much the same that it would break - but instead it gave in.

Was going to ride to work the other day, started up the blast, went to put it into first gear, and snap...the clutch cable snapped. At least it happened in the lot and not on the road though.

But anyways, I've been looking online, and this is the best replacement I've found so far...
http://www.barnettclutches.com/2010/buell/0/0/2005 -buell-blast.html

But I'd like to not have to spend $60 plus shipping...are there any cheaper alternatives from say another make/model of bike that i could use? Mine is a 2005 if that matters.

Barnett is probably the last clutch cable you'll ever have to buy for your Blast. Buy it!

I found this slightly cheaper on Amazon, and honestly the main reason I want to get in on Amazon is because I can get it quicker through Amazon prime. Would this fit my bike? It only lists through as fitting through model year 2002 (again mine is 2005)
