    Hi guys new to the site, I need help, my blaster won't start, it has fire, it has compression and it is getting fuel, I have checked the carburetor it is clean and everything is oky with it. The spark plug is a little wet, but not drowned and still fires, I have even flushed the tank and replaced the fuel tap. Ignition is on and switched on.. It back fires every 10 to 15 kicks with a little blue smoke that comes out. I only drive with it over the weekends but it's been standing for a week now and all of a sudden no start, not sure what year model the bike is, all I know is it is a limited edition 6 speed but I don't know what year model it is, the light is on the frame not on the steering wheel, any help wil be appreciated.

    Drain the bowl of your carb if you haven't done so. Start with the bowl totally dry and then see if it will run.
    Also, if it is overfilling the carb, adjust your float height.

    I'd take a look at your reeds. On occasion, the screws can back out and cause some interesting starting/running issues.

    I had a '92 YZ250 that did the same thing when my reeds took a dump. Unfortunately, I was nowhere near my truck, so I had to do a repair on the trail with just tightening the screws so that it was rigid enough to run.

    If condition of reeds checks out, using a Blaster flywheel puller, check flywheel key
