I just inherited an excellent condition '96 Banshee, but I didn't build it. I'll list the mods I'm sure that have been done, and since I don't have access to a dyno, I'm hoping someone can give me a ballpark HP figure based on these mods/hardware: It has Toomey T5's and silencers, nearly perfect cylinder compression, an aftermarket timing plate, the standard Toomey airbox vent mods, carb throats 1.5mm over stock diameter, and jetting done for anywhere between sea level and 2500 feet. The displacement is stock, but it has a fairly aggressive port/polish job on the exhaust side, and aftermarket reed valves (I think it might be a 4-reed setup, but I'm not sure), as I'm not much of a mechanic. Knowing mine is a '96 and had about 47HP stock (not 34 like the post-2000 models), what kind of estimate would you give on its likely HP output range?

Runs great on flat but not on dunes
Yzz posted a topic in Jetting & Exhaust ForumHey guys, I have a problem with my banshee that runs great with no loose in power or bogging in flat dunes or pavement and pulls really good. However, when I ride on the dunes and trying to get uphill starting from the 1st gear to 2nd once I pull the 3rd or sometimes 2nd it looses all the power while im uphill and I need to downshift to 2nd and 1st for the banshee to hits its power. Sometimes it bogs when I downshift to the 1st and have to push the throttle really fast to have the power comes right to save me making the downhill hahaa. If I want it to pull its hardest power, I have to ride a little distance before the hill and try to make it hit the powerbond 1st, 2nd and then to 3rd gear and it goes fine uphill (all with WOT) but as soon as I take the throttle little bit off nooo all power will be lost and need to downshift. I tried my friend banshee that has T5 and it pulls and make its power in 1 sec and he can upshift when he is riding uphill unhill the 3rd gear but mine upshift in that situation will make it loose the power I need to downshift to 1st or 2nd to wake it up. Mods: Stock carbs and stock cylinder and piston (factory). 1 to 1 big K&N filter with factory airbox and lid. Pro-circuit pipes. V4 Reeds I have no idea about the size of jetting because the shop has put in all the mods. Elev: 2000-2300 ft Temp: 50-68 F Your help and advice will be highly appreciated.
Power Band issue
greelynick posted a topic in Banshee Repairs and Modshello guys, i just finished up some maitenance on my banshee today and rolled it outiside to start it up and it started up and idled great, i did all fluids change and spark plugs change and cleaned the k&n air filter in it, the pipes from the headers back were rotten so i took them off and im still waiting for new ones in the mail. i took the quad for a spin and it is great in the low rpms but has no sort of power band. it just seems like it wants to rip loose and i floor it and it doesnt happen, please tell me that the banshee soemtimes dont hit powerband because of incorrect backpressure with the exhausts off because i really hope its not another issue. do haveing exhaust off cause the banshees to not hit power band? please help guys. oh yeah and right before i put it away it was driving like a beast like a week ago
