Yes - would be my guess - though a wire reroute may be needed or shortened.

well it looks like everyone agrees so I'll order the part and let you know how it turns out, any special way to shorten the wire or will cutting out a chunk and using butt connectors to put the end back on ok?
thanks jon

Wait and see - may just need to reroute the wires coming out - no big deal.

I picked up a 2009 blast w/1700 miles on it that had been sitting for almost a year from a friend. The bike looks good, but it wouldn't run for more than the time it took to idle due to the bad gas.
I took the tank and carb off to clean and drain and saw that the clutch side engine mounting bolt was sheared off in the head.

I am assuming that this could mean the large rubber mount is bad and caused the bolt to shear?

Also, can I take the head off the engine with out dropping the motor? I'd like to take the head in to have the bolt removed. I just don't trust myself to extract the bolt and not screw up the head.

Doesn't have to be a total drop, but still need a jack's support.

Thanks EZ. That is what I was thinking as well.

So, drop the exhaust and then support the engine with a jack and start disassembling the head.

Sound right?

Severely loosen the Stabilizer bolts - center and the two side - that will allow a drop for enough clearance to get the bolts needed.

Thank you EZ.

I kind of wish I had a service manual for the blast.

Thanks

Success

I picked up some cheap Harbor Freight left handed drill bits and drilled the bolt out until the bit caught and backed out the broken bolt.

Sounds like I need a trip to the hardware store to pick up some grade 8 bolts.

I found the engine mounting link on the head was Kaput! the rubber was reamed out in the link closest to the head.

For a bike with 1700 miles, this thing looks like it had a hard engine life. Probably engine idle for long periods.
