Yamaha Blaster 2002

The Yamaha Blaster is a 200 cc air-cooled single-cylinder two-stroke all-terrain vehicle produced as an entry-level machine manufactured in Japan and sold in the United States from 1988 to 2006. Because of the Blaster’s initial low price tag, it sold in large numbers for many years[citation needed]. Its two-stroke engine is easily modified by enthusiasts and a large aftermarket now exists for the quad. A range of add-ons are readily available from simple bolt on exhausts and suspension parts to complete aftermarket frames and larger displacement engines.

The heavily finned, air-cooled Blaster engine has roots from a water-cooled machine, as evidenced by the plugged water pump casting on the right side of the engine. The history of the engine in its water-cooled form can be traced directly back to the RD/RZ125 lc (shares an identical bottom end and crank cases but uses a different stroke crank) and the Australian market WR200. It is possible to use parts from either of these bikes and build an all-Yamaha water-cooled Blaster engine, or one can simply swap the engines since the engine mounts are nearly identical.
