Re: My Banshee is on FMFs web site!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the kudos!
I did respond to your post.
I can offer 1st hand info on the Banshee, cuz i have modified mine, and know all about it.
For the Bombardier, i can only relay what i have read in magazines.
Basically, for HP match, get pipes on the Banshee. For suspension, get 2" a arms, 4" axle, and maybe a longer swingarm to match up suspension.
It really depends where you want the powerband. The Banshee has no low end torque, but instead has a surging mid range and top end(high rpms). THe Bombardier is said to have a strong pull throughout the powerband, with no surges or boosts of unpredictable power.
The Bombardier is heavier, almost 500lbs. THe Bombardier, is a big bore single cylinder, it will vibrate and fatigue you quickly. The Bombardier is new, and is the first year of production. If you want one, i would wait a year or 2 for them to work out the bugs. They say it the steering is trash because of the caster angle. Parts availability is sparse.
THe Banshee, is well known, and parts availability(stock and aftermarket is great because it has been around since 87),. It is lighter. THere is no battery to go dead. It is easier to kick over. Twin cylinder 2 stroke is smooth as silk.
Only you can decide what quad suits you needs. I love my modified Banshee, and will not ever trade for a Bombardier.
