The other day i got stuck in about 2 and 1/2 feet deep of mud for about 250 feet out. When I got unstuck after 2 hours[:(!] when I was going down the trail I heard this knocking coming from the motor. so i stopped and put it in nuteral. and it revved up to the rev limitor the i shut it off. so i put it in first gear and listend to the motor. im pretty sure theres a rod knoking in the motor. and when i was almost home it backfire a streak of fire. I wish I had Listend to my grandpa about the motor.[confused]

Bet you broke a skirt on the piston,my blaster did that same thing. Those things DO NOT like being in water and mud,after I rebuilt it and sold it to the next kid he went mudding with it and blew it up again.

i think that might be it. Im really not all that happy with my blaster. It was fun when i first got it but i live in alaska and its cold as hell here half of the time. and its kick start. I want to get a yzf450 or a raptor 660. Well since im 13 i could get a 90cc polaris preditor. my friend had 1 last year that was modified for racing at it kept up rite next to my blaster on the track

No they really haven't really changed much since they came out in 87, that should tell you something right there.

Sounds like a nice reliable upgrade and perfect for your size.

well long story short..... the trx is my Dads and the blaster is still mine i have to push start it to start it because there is no compression. anyways were going to set out an order for wiesco piston and rings. i found out that when i first got the blaster the piston was going out on it,cuz i rode my friend bruises blaster and it sounds nothing like mine and his is all stock. im going to try and sell my blaster for $1200 cuz it is in good shape but if i cant sell it ill just ride it, other hand if i do sell it ill be getting this

Those blaster are a lot of fun. My neighbor had one and all it has was a full LRD race exhaust and it was quick. If your going to rebuild it you should look into Vitos. wiesco is a good company and make good products but I have been very happy with Vitos, they are out of Detroit and have a whole page for blasters. I got my topend kit for the Banshee $75 less then from Wiesco.

Those Warriors are awesome quads, the motors have been around forever and still used in the Raptor 350's. I just got my wife one for xmas and being a 4 stroke the torques is very nice. The only down full of the warrior/raptor350 motors are they get hot fast. Yamaha should have put a fan on those.

Anyways if your going to play in the mud you have to be ready for something to break or go wrong. Just my 2cents.
