  1. My 10yo son is into his first year of flat track racing an LT80. His quad is faster than most of the others out there and soon to be faster with the CT pipe and jack moore build I have coming. But he is getting squirrely right around the middle of each turn. I see the same issue with the larger quads with much more seasoned riders. He is able to get loose into the turn but right around the middle to 2/3rds into it he looses the drift and it kicks back in on him. He loses a lot of momentum there. And I see it happen with a lot of people but others seem to have overcome that issue. I don't really know how to work on that with him because I'm not out there doing it. What causes it and what should I have him work on more? Thanks in advance Sent from my SM-S908U using Tapatalk
  2. whoa... you got me there. Nope, no CNN indoctrination for me ma'am

  4. I can't even talk shit on this one... only thing is, I said "write ups" not "videos". Those are different in English. 😆That was good though. You're still a dick.

  8. Where can I find some decent write ups on 2 stroke porting and what effects different geometries have and why?
  9. I can't help with any of the engine stuff. Mine is stock but all I ride are wooded trails here. I live in NH. The tight handling suck with a +2 swing arm. I went back to stock length roundhouse. You already have the widened axle and a arms. Your suspension adjustment would possibly have to be tweaked if you're going to do some of the areas here in NH like clough/dunbarton or jericho. I ride the shit the 4x4 guys think they own and always get stuck behind them. One thing I did that I am happy about that most people would argue is the larger tires. I run 22 rear and 23 front. Now I am having to completely readjust my front end for it. The biggest piece of advice I can give you for NH trails is, at minimum, a rear skid plate. It doesn't look like you have one in the photos but you will need one. If you've ridden here in NH I am sure you already know.
  10. What the fuck?! By what measure? [emoji23] They are calling all of the empty positions available due to the mass exodus from the workforce due to the clown virus “job creation” for biden. The only way they can scrape anything positive from this admin is to leave out most of the facts and manipulate what’s left. And they still can’t put trump down without making shit up. It’s sad how pathetic our society has become. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. You already got a good starting point in an above answer. I'm not a banshee expert by any means but just dealing with the lack of idle issue and only assuming everything else is in tact, there are a few things you should check. How are your reeds? How is your compression? You went from a cracked air box to almost completely unrestricted air with the pods. Get the 27.5 pilots and a handful of main jets from size 280 to 320. I personally try to start rich on jetting and work my way down. Others might have a different way but that is just what I do. Put the 27.5 pilots in and put the needle on the 3rd groove down. Middle groove on stock needles. (don't use the toomey needle). start with the air mixture 1.5 turns out. There isn't really a factory idle setting on the tors units. I removed mine right after buying my banshee. You have a sync tool, right? If not sync them by the windows on the side of the carb. Look at the slides and move the throttle slightly and make sure the slides move in sync. Then buy a sync tool. They are cheap and easy to use. Once you have it idling, set the air mixture. set them equally. I can't help you hear what it sounds like when you have them set right. It will sound like it is getting sluggish as you turn the screws in going toward rich. And you'll get a dry sounding bog as you turn them the other way in the lean zone. You want to shoot for that little spot right between lean and rich. Lean condition will have a dry sounding bog when you blip the throttle, will take a second to get a good reaction from the throttle and your rpms will hang and not settle properly. When they drop, the bike might even die completely. A good way to check if it is lean in this case is to half choke it. If it improves, you are definitely lean. If it dies completely, you're rich. Again, this is assuming you have checked for leaks and compression. For main jets you have to do plug chops and read your smoke rings. There are a million videos and way better posts on plug chops and carb tuning here than what i can give you but it's really not that hard. Just have to play with it til its doing what you expect it to do and your plugs look right after doing the chops.
  12. Checking my schedule and it looks like I won't GAF tomorrow either

  13. Yeah but there’s a difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Whatever you say Claude. You’re useless. And there is nothing you could ever possibly know that will even remotely be above me. Tell yourself whatever you want but the reality is, you post a bunch of trash in response to serious questions, your garbage on this thread makes you look like an absolute clown, and you sought this out today like a dumb ass. Go think up something useful. I’m done with you, douche bag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
