1987 Yamaha Banshee $750.00 o.b.o this is a project bike I have lost interest in. The frame has a bill of sale and the motor is from a wrecked banshee. Both frame and motor have clean records. The motor runs but the left carb needs a new float which I have but have not installed. There is a cool head installed on the motor along with Toomey pipes and silencers. The top a arm is aftermarket. I do not have all of the plastics only some, and I have the seat. I would not be selling this but I have 3 other projects in front of it and I need the room. I am selling it as is and it will need to be picked up locally from Whittier, CA, I have no means of being able to ship it. If you have any questions or want more pictures please pm me.
I recently purchased an original all stock (so i'm told) 1987 banshee for a school project. It runs and drives, however starting the thing is a pain in the a$$. The guy told me that it has an auto choke but I don't know if I believe him. After it starts it runs awesome. When its below 50 degrees fahrenheit I have to use starting fluid and it starts up no problem. Above 50 degrees it starts on about the 7th or 8th kick. Did they ever make an auto choke for a banshee, especially a 1987? Anyways should be a fun project. Thanks Tyler
What's up everyone, My name is Jeff and I've been riding quads out in Gordon's Well, CA for most of my life. I grew up riding a Blaster and TRX250Rs after that. Always wanted a Banshee, (and my girlfriend has a faster quad than me not for long! ) so I picked up a stock '87 for $900 just last week. Here's the original pic from the ad: I'm an avid search function user, and I have found lots of handy information on this forum thanks to many of you. When I picked it up, the guy said that the electrical system was a little messed up, which made me hesitant. The kill switch didn't work and it had one of those tether kill switches as well. The tail light didn't work but the bulb was new. All things that could be easy, maybe a little less easy? I picked it up, brought it home and took it all apart. Inside the switch, the terminals weren't making contact, so I fixed that and it was good to go. Tail light needed to be plugged in. haha! After hours of work over the weekend, this is how it turned out: I picked up some Toomey T-5's used for $240 and replaced the handle bars with renthals. The paddles and razors came in the deal. Currently I'm working on rejecting the carbs for the addition of the pipes, as well as replacing the J arm bushings. Which, here's the left side bolt and sleeve: After the main things are fixed, I'm going to drain and flush all the fluids, bleed the brakes, etc. A little about me, I'm a native of San Diego, 25 years old this friday, and I've been in the Navy for 7 years. Lived in Hawaii for 3 of those years and returned to San Diego because I missed the dunes! Anyways, Just saying hello! And thanks for all the help already! Jeff
