Re: what should i know about my banshee

congrats. on the new Banshee
I run premium and the 32:1 yamalube
if you loose coolant you have a leak, but if you are running on trails when it is real hot and you cant open her up to get some air through the radiator, it may loose some coolant out of the overflow
the owners manual sais to change the trans oil every 6 months with Yamalube (10-30) I change mine 3 times a year about every 3 mo. depending on the amount of riding I do
If you foul a plug it will run like ****t, even my 11 year old daughter could tell (its that obvious)
if the carbs are out of sink, you will know it ,(slides out of sink) when you give it gas it will act like it is running on one cyl. then it will kick in and run on both (if the Idle is out of sink) it will not idle down very fast, you will give it gas and it will take a few seconds to come down , if they are way out it wont come down at all
kick starter, I put a new detent(ball) with a longer spring in mine and it helped alittle but it still rattles, live with it
have fun with it and be carefull

Re: what should i know about my banshee

I run 92 with [email protected]:1.

Usually, coolant will spill out the overflow tube at the radiator on to your pipes and frame when overheating, going up or down hills.

Gear oil. I run 10-30 and change about 3 times a year. Depends on riding.

Good idea to check the plugs every ride. Stalling and hard starting can be symptoms of fouled plugs.

Pull the air box off and equalize the slides side to side. I just use a drill bit as a measuring gauge to make the slides sit the same. Raptor Rider covered this answer well. I cant really add to what he said.

Where you at 98 Warrior? Ive got some clamp on KNs with outerewears (eliminate the stock air box) and also a stock airbox with proflow, with KN and outerwear id like to sell. Not interested in shipping though. Im in Oceanside,CA(San Diego area).

Never had the kick starter rattle. Check the springs inside the case.

On a side note. A Toomey Radiator(Pro Design also makes one at a higher price) and Pro Design water impeller would be good insurance with all that extra heat your 380 is makin.
