Banshee Throttle sticking

I have a 99 banshee that screams. I have made all the normal additions to it ie. (Pipes, boost bottle, cool head) and it runs great. But one problem. When ever I hit water the throttle sticks open. I have tried everything. I have even put it all the way stock again and it keeps happening. I can't find anywhere water is getting into my carbs. Some people think it might be electrical, but I have no idea what else to check. Help Please

Re: Banshee Throttle sticking

Are you running the lid on your stock air box?

Re: Banshee Throttle sticking

The throttle cable itself may be hanging up. Try lubricating the cable. The cable could be getting heat from the motor, then when hitting the cold water could flash cool the cable causing it to constrict. This is prob. a long shot but who knows?
Good Luck

Re: Banshee Throttle sticking

Sounds familiar. Does it hang open just enuf to make the "idle" about 3 grand? I've been fighting that problem for years on my 91. On mine, it is not the cable. While in the stuck position, I can move the cable up and down with my fingers on each carb.(I have aftermarket caps) It is definitely something inside the carb. If this sounds like your problem, maybe we can compare notes.

Re: Banshee Throttle sticking

I have found water in my carbs. I tried buffing the slides and it still happens. I have waterproofed every connection on the machine. Do you think it could be electrical?

Re: Banshee Throttle sticking

I don't think an electrical problem could cause it, as the engine needs increased air/fuel to speed up. Until you hit the electronic rev limit at high rpm, the carb is the only thing that controls the speed of the engine.
Could you describe the symptoms better? I can give you lots of ideas, most of which I've tried and discarded, but it might not hurt to approach the problem from another direction? Maybe I didn't go far enuf in trying things.

Re: Rev limiter on a Banshee

The only rev limiter on a Banshee is the stock pipes! The electronic TORS carb caps are an ignition kill, not a rev limiter. If the throttle gets stuck wide open, then the ignition will be killed

Re: Rev limiter on a Banshee

did you oil or lube the throttle slides before reinstalling them? If the tops of the throttle slides are not sealed tight it will suck in water and dust and cause them to stick, this is what I found wrong with my banshee when my thottle was sticking.

Re: Rev limiter on a Banshee

what should I use to lube the slides? Won't the lube get pushed out? If the water is in the airbox and sucked through the air filter will it end up on the top of the slides where the spring is or will just get burnt with the gas and air?
