right on cleartoy I have had nothing but good luck with them myself first when I bought my pro kit , then I got rearended on the track and bent one of my mufflers,it did'nt even take a week and I had my new one RIGHT ON TOOMEY, By the way Cleartoy did you decide to use toomey pipes?
In the last few months I have been back and forth w/ diff engine builders...... I am in the process of building a spare motor for my banshee. I want a low budget drag motor for the 1 time I year I get to play in a sandbox<g> The 2 motor builders that hold any credit w/ me came back and told me the same thing. "FMF's are great on an un-ported motor" As soon as you start cutting on them, its changes everything. The T5's were designed more towards a ported motor but work very well on a stocker. I went and sold my T5's and bought a set of SST's(too late now) I am kicking myself for not waiting to hear back from who is building my motor. I will try them out...... and if they dont work well on my 370lr I will just sell them If you get a chance... take a look at the rebuild I am doing. I am tired of hearing the biased opinions of the magazines so I am going to do an article on my site and atvsource.com on the rebuild. A full write up on the SST's will follow soon too..... as soon as it stops snowing and this white crap on the ground melts http://www.teleport.com/~mpracing/mpracing/Page_2.html
Thanx alot.. I have put alot into my shee over the last 11 years. I have talked w/ alot of diff engine builders over the years and I got tired of dealing w/ "send it to me and we will 'port' it". Reading the magazines is a bunch of bs also.... While I am not saying that there arent otehr good builders out there, I have found 2 great people to deal w/ and I dont see a need to go anywhere else. I dont think you would have a problem selling your fmf's I had sold my old T5's w/o even putting an add on the net or the paper. I used to have a set of the older fmf's. I sold them and bought the T5's and was shocked at the amount of low end I had gained over the torque plus fmf's, while still gaining a ton on top end!
As for the shift star.... the one I have in my 370 now was done at CT racing, The shift star thats in my spare motor will be done my MP racing in oregon. I will have detailed pics of the shift star before and after on my site. I will also be cutting my gears for better shifting also. Those pics will be up also. As for trinity... I wouldnt send them my lawnmower.
I will post a note here in the forums as soon as I update the website on this rebuild. I also hope to have some pics soon of the SST's, unfortunatly we just got hit w/ 10+ inches of snow so I wont be out riding for a while
I have a 89 banshee that i bought brand hew, it has a set of fmf pipes and silencers. Also i changed the gearing. It has the original pistons and rings. AlI have had to do over the years is the regular maintance. I ride alot has any one ever heard of such a thing. My buddies banshees are always blowing up so they are always boring them out. My banshee is one of the fastes around I dont lose to many races. I was wondering if I should re-ring it but I am afraid to rip such a good motor apart. Why? has anybody ever had such good luck with a 2 stoke.
I have a 2000 Banshee and I (like you ) have'nt lost a race even on the track(beginers class)it was my first year on a 4 wheeler,now 2nd. I have the Tommey T-5 pro kit in mine ,regular maintainance,it purrs like a kitten (BANSHEE-ADRENALINE RUSH , RAPTOR - PURE PLEASURE
