Re: Raptor vs. Banshee

Id say for reliability and versatility, go with the Raptor.

The Banshee is more maintenece, and more expensive when it needs repairs. it is also meant for sand dunes, hill climbing and flat out hauling in the desert.

Having a hopped up Banshee since 99, i would gladly trade for a Raptor, despite the loss of HP.

Re: Raptor vs. Banshee

I have both and I prefer to ride the Raptor, it has more usable power, anyone want to buy a Banshee?

i call bull****e

banshees are not hight maintainance if you look after them properly. compare doing a top end on each!

Re: Raptor vs. Banshee

I think you have a point Portgrinder. THe problem is, alot of people really dont understand how to look after a 2 stroke properly. I went through 2-3 top ends before i found the problem to an overly lean cylinder. I leaking crank case seal was sucking in air for quite some time....till the seal totally gave way, destroyed the bearing and so on and so forth.

Also, jettin is way critical on 2 strokes.

I never had knowledge or even access to a leak down tester for the seals.

SO takin that in to consideration.....I still stand, 2 strokes are more maintainance.


However, if i HAD to do a top end on one or the other, id do it on a 2 stroke...despite twin cylinder.

Re: Raptor vs. Banshee

My vote is for the shee, I've owned several over the years and I own one now. I ride Raptors quite a bit at work, and I considered it when buying my new quad, but its not for me. I'm a 2-stroke fan for life. I change my rings quite a bit and my pistons every so often so i've never had a real problem with breaking down. If you practice preventative maintenance you will be fine with a 2-stroke.
