    Not sure of year. I got this for next to nothing with a blown motor.
    I had the cylinder bored to match a new piston which I installed along with new gaskets. Starts and runs but carb is giving me trouble (jetting issue I think---there is a dead zone between the low and high rpm fueling and it won't rev to full rpm in the higher gears).
    One tire has a slow leak.

    Come get it if you want to mess with it.

    Thanks.

    i did not know they still made the blaster. i remember back in the late 80's early 90's when they came out i got one for xmas it was a peppy little thing for no more than what it was. i rode it into the ground and traded for a warrior a few years later . back then the blaster was $2,300 i bet its close to $5,000 today

    The kid I got it from may have put a newer headlight on it---I think he had it for a couple years and had purchased it used. It has cable operated disk brakes that I think would have been phased out by the 2000's. (not 100% sure).

    Steel---I don't think they are aftermarket---fronts are flipped so they stick out farther than stock.

    Thanks---guess it may be '02-'03 like you said. I heard they did away with the 2-stroke motors on the new ones (emissions requirements I guess)---is that true?
