Banshee Pipes?

I would like to know what you guys think are the better pipes. FMF Fatty Golds or the Toomey T5's for a 2000 Banshee. I hear more pros for the FMF, what do you think?

Re: Banshee Pipes?

According to Alba Action Sports dyno, the FMFs make almost 2HP more than the T5s. , plus there is no radical drop in the middle of the powerband.

I had the old FMF Golds. I just recently switched to the Fatty(torque plus) with their PC2 silencers. I lost some low end torque, but gained more midrange and top end.

I bought mine in December,and at that time, Yamaha\Suzuki of Arizona had the best prices.

Re: Banshee Pipes?

I have the Toomey's on my bike and my riding buddy has the FMF's....I've ridden his and they really don't feel much different to me....I'd be equally as happy with either one. I like the sound of the Toomeys better though! ;-)

I just installed the Rad Valves on mine and it made a considerable difference in performance, it feels more 'snappy' at all throttle ranges! I was afraid that I was just throwing money away on it, it was a pleasant surprise!

Re: Banshee Pipes?

Hey Howard, long time no talk

So did you have to rejet for the RAD valves? On the Toomey site, you mentioned 300 mains and 32.5 pilots, which is the norm for pipes and no air box lid.

Hey, how's it going Cleartoy? Been quiet around here lately.....

No, I didn't rejet, still the same ones. I was concerned about that, but it doesn't seem to be an issue.....

Re: Banshee Pipes?

The Pro Circuits look VERY similar to the Toomeys.

For a dyno run between the PCs, FMFs and Toomeys. Check out www.albaactionsports.com
You just have to fish through the website to find it.
