WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

What is up with everyone on here being obsessed
with banshees [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img] they are alright but they are ugly
and they are little faster than a Raptor
but Raptors will go 70mph+ i would not go any
faster than that.

Re: WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

Have you ever had a day with one? Better than a day with a pornstar, GARUNTEED. I had never ridden a banshee untill i rode the one i bought a few weeks back...i was actually planning on buying a 2000 CR250, but then things got wirey on that deal, and Jake mentioned a 96 banshee for 2 grand, same price i woulda go tthe CR for. So i went over and looked at it, rode it, and i was sold. I don't know what it is about them, ppl say they handle like crap and have shatty suspension, i say bullcrap, i love it, ive got a good 40ft of airtime with it and it's nice and plush, and as far as handling...i love it, it doesn't even go on two wheels on pavement, i slide on pavement before i got on two wheels, the only handling default is when ur hammerin on it and trying to turn it, cuz your front end floats quite a bit, but i love it, as far as people being obsessed? nah, it's a banshee thing man, you wouldn't understand.

Re: WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

i have ridden one, they are fun as hell....nothing better than a twin cylinder 350cc 2 stroke quad that makes you hold on when you punch the throttle...

the last high performance 2 stroke quads left I might add...

Re: WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

Banshees are still the king of the dunes as atv's go.
Even with all these other new quads out the shee still stands it's ground. With a minimal amount of cash you can get good horsepower out of that motor. Not to mention the sound they make with a set of toomey T5's as your hammering
a few gears. LONG LIVE THE SHEE!!! [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

"Banshees are still the king of the dunes as atv's go."


yes very very true.... I have been riding the dunes for 7 years in our jeep and our friends buggies and you see banshee's all over kicking ass in the drags and all it's sweet. I just got my frist quad this last week, a 1999 warrior black and yellow and i love it. I wouldnt trade it for anything. but if you want a FAST factory quad thats great for dunning and can be modded to make even that much fast then the shee is a deffintat. I think thats why people love them so much.




1999 Yamaha Warrior
ONLY MODS: DG pipe
Dirt Devil rear tires
and it goes every where in da dunes.

Re: WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

Banshees are one of the fastest quads out there, one i saw in a magazine topped at 90, im not sure if its stock or not however, im new to offroadin and all i have is a [bleep] up suzuki with a chassis i can rip off, so im mot the ATV authority and not really sure if it is the fastest but they are really good

Re: WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

I rode a stock banshee today...hated it! So i just got ANOTHER new a-arm for the banshee...was out riding today, and the bolt to the bushing on the bottem left a-arm broke...wheel flopped sideways...so i was limpin it back to the truck...and the bracket to my left pipe busted off...then the bolts out of my clutch lever vibrated out as i watched to make sure the a-arm wasn't gettin caught on nething...went to put some brake fluid in and totally stripped out the screw on the master cylinder...no front brakes, need two new pipe brackets, new clutch lever assembly, and two new a-arms (the upper a-arm bushing got phugged on the way back to the truck)....so im letting it sit untill i get back from AIT (in fort knox) and im gonna fix it when i get back, and then sell it on ebay probably...then im gonna pay off the banshee loan, and take my bonus from the military (2300 bucks) and make a down payment on either a yzf450, or trx450...or buy a raptor that's been set up a little bit. I rode my buddy joe's today again, i hated it before, but i was ridin it in the sandpits today...and it was alotta fun...

Re: WHY DOES EVERYONE LOVE BANSHEES?

Have you ever rode one for a day at the sand dunes? A Raptor does not even compare to riding a Banshee in the dunes. Mucho FUN! [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
