Re: Hey Cleartoy
Welp, im still breaking in my Banshee, per CTs online walkthrough. Im having good success. Im doing all the heat cycles required this time, and it runs smooth. I have about 1 hr on it so far.
Im thinking about keeping it if it will stay reliable. Im monitoring coolant, i have cooling upgrades:Toomey Radiator, Pro Design Water Impeller and Cool Head.
Now i have a dual foam filter with an Outerwear on top of a Toomey intake to keep out the dust.
I did some research on the Raptor, and found some plusses, like the bolt pattern being the same as the Banshees, Twist throttle and pipes are available, supposedly good all around power. I would need to sell my bike first, then find a dealer willing to waive the $1500 set up fee(local dealer is charging that on top of $6499MSRP). Then i would have to start over with a wider rear axle(+4 Eliminator or +6 X33 Dura Blues) and +3" wider A ARms, twist throttle, and exhaust.
So the idea of getting a Raptor is on hold right now. I have heard problems of reliability on the Suzuki. I dont even like Suzis anyways. I like Honda #1(too bad their hottest bike is a 400EX) and Yamaha#2. I wouldnt consider buying anything else.
