Banshee

Hopefully im going to get this banshee. i posted some of the classified. Tell me what you think plz.

. It has a freshly rebuilt .20 over wiseco top end, and has been ported. Boyesen reed valves, K&N filter, and toomey T-5 chrome pipes and silencers. Hinson clutch basket. Renthal bars, pro-design kill switch. DG alloy nerf bars. Douglas black label front wheels, champion beadlocks on the rear with 8 inch turf tamers. -2 inch Lonestar swingarm with the 250 style bearing carrier, and a lonestar axcaliber axle. Has been kept inside since it was new.

my main question would be what would the 250 style bearing make better? wouldnt it be weaker?

thanks in advance.

Re: Banshee

that is a sharp looking banshee...i love those front race fenders. my blaster has fenders like that and i was wondering what my banshee would look like. i may just have to shave my fenders :-) i am not sure what the 250 style bearing would do.

Re: Banshee

i shouldnt weaken the bearing carrier at all...it is just a cam style adjust like the 250r so it is easier to ajust

Re: Banshee

Honda 250R style eccentric bearring carrier is the way to go. It is SO easy to adjust the chain.Have you ever used the trash that Yamaha has used to adjust the chain? I have on mine, and i HATE it.

With a minus 2 swingarm, it will wheelie easier.

I would say it is worth $5K for sure.

Re: Banshee

that looks like a nice bike, i hope you like it but my question is can you ride it? i see alot of nice banshees that look fast but they guys on them are big pussies but i will give them that a banshee takes alot of clutch work and you have to keep the throttle pinned all the time at least from my experiences

and another thing i want to know is how fast is it will it beat a suzuki quadzilla, modified banshees are about the only thing that can beat my zilla that and the rare 250r

may my zilla live forever

Re: Banshee

Ok, just to clear it up, im not a BIG PUSSY. I know thats not what you were saying, but if you have read any of my earlier posts, youd not say that of me. I race Fourwheelers (thats why im lookin for a 'Shee) and i have a Samurai that is about the size of a fourwheeler that EMBARASS's and Harass's bigger heeps.

WHat is probably the cheapest i could by a good Banshee for?
anything less than my Sammy?

BTW i payed $1000 for my sammy, 5x's less than a Shee i found here locally.

Re: Banshee

Basically if you want a decent banshee...you will be paying more then your sammi...I bought a 94 shee last summer and had to drive from minnesota to ohio to get it. they wanted about 4000+ for a used shee here....so I am thinking you will be paying 2500+ for a decent shee....at 2500 it will probably needing some work...

Re: Banshee

THX airborn, im starting to see who the real four wheeler fanatics are here. Airborn you being one of them. Hopefully with your help, i can learn a lot more. i think it was you who i was gonna buy a 'shee from a long time ago. but, guess we just lost touch.

Ill will be floating in and out of this board, learning as much as possible. looking forward to it.

Re: Banshee

hey a good banshee runs from about 3000 to 4000 but it will probably need a little tlc but every bike needs that all i got to say is get a banshee with pipes on it or put pipes on it cause i hate how those stock pipes sound they remind me of my blaster

and by the way about that barrier carrier it is a very good thing makes life a whole lot easier those stock chain adjusters on the banshees and blasters suck a$$

may my zilla live forever
