    Wave Blaster I questions

    After riding my friends '96 Blaster, I decided I want one!

    Can anybody tell me the differances between the '93-'96 models? I know '96 had dual carbs - which is hard to find. Are they really work looking for?

    I did find a '94 with duals - guy thought it came that way - but I dont think so.

    Any help or thoughts would be great

    94's came with a single carb, we have one. You are right, they are a BLAST, hence the name. A Factory Pipe Mod pipe is the first mod I'd make, it made ours like a whole new beast, and we didn't have to do anything to the engine other than use the new jets that came with the pipe. It accelerates much faster, with a couple mph on top to boot.
    If you find a twin carb, Raider engine model, Group K's hammer kit will make an awesome package(I used that kit in my 94 Raider to great success).
    However, the single carb 701 runs great with the pipe, and is very, very good on gas.

    As for changes, only paint color and graphics, 94-95, with Raider engine in 96. I don't know if its got the Raider exhaust though, which was good for a few more HP.

    Haha yes they are a Blast! Its funny - I hear people talk about them - I was like - why would you want that? Now I know... damn I was laughing so hard when I kept falling off...

    I have found a few early stock Blasters for $1000-1500. '96 for $2200-2500. I am just looking to have fun with it for now - maybe mod it later in summer.
