    Well I’m back here asking for help. I was going through the gears before putting my engine back together and I noticed that I couldn’t shift anymore. I opened the right side of my case and found that the shift star is pushed in to the point that I can’t find any gears. The shift knob only moves...

    Help with transmission

    I was cleaning my transmission after splitting my case. I flipped it upside down and sprayed brake cleaner to make sure there wasn’t any dirt or anything in the gears. A rod just fell out of the transmission. I think it’s a clutch push rod but I’m not too sure. I have bored out my cylinder and...

    Blaster won't go into first or second gear

    Hi Gurus, I'm going to help a buddy out and see if I can repair his gen 1 Blaster. He's dropping it off tomorrow. What I know so far is that it used to run great then started not being able to go into first gear (just skipped it). With that issue he would use 2nd on up until it stopped going...

    Transmission Oil

    I want to change the transmission oil in my 2003 Yamaha blaster but I am confused about which oil I should put in it, the manual states SAE 10w30 should be used but other people on this forum say not to use SAE 10w30 and to use ATF, ATF type F, or ideally Motul Transoil 10w30.

    2004 Blaster shifting

    Hello, I’m new to the forum and I’m having some problems shifting. I changed the transmission oil to 10w30 motul trans oil. When I shift it feels like there is no more gears until I rock back and forth it catches the gear.

    No 5th gear.

    I took it apart thinking i was going to find a chewed gear/teeth missing. But all looks good. Except for this bearing keeper. Would this alone cause it not to have 5th gear? Or was it assembled wrong on the last rebuild. The keeper is out 1/8 of a inch and the screw tabs are broke off.

    Rebuilding and found crack in case. Suggetions please.

    Transmission won’t shift out of neutral

    I just finished putting my case back together after opening it up to pull part of a wrist bearing out after it fell in while replacing my piston. I noticed that I somehow bent the shift cam stopper while pulling the case apart. I removed the stopper and straightened it without trouble then put...

    New to the blaster!

    can someone recommend a good wet clutch oil to use? Also I’m kind of new to anything with a clutch. The four wheelers Ive had in the past were automatic polaris’s. Do you need to pull the clutch lever when you down shift? Thanks peace!
