i am currently running dual 34 keihin carbs. it idles but bogs real bad in the mid power range. it has a 392 athena big bore, cool heads, 22cc domes, vforce 4 reeds, billet intake, fmf pipes and silencers, oversized radiators. it is about 25-40 Fahrenheit and about 600-700 feet above sea level. any recommendations on carb setting would be greatly appreciated. thanks for looking
Hey 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.

Hey guys, I'm new to the 2-stroke world and purchased a Banshee about a month ago. It was already modified by the previous owner, which made me a little hesitant to buy it, but I couldn't pass up the deal. It ran very well for about a month (5-7 hrs of riding total) . All my riding was in dry, dusty open trails, lots of WOT. It ran flawlessly, great low end (for a two- stroke) and it screamed without any hiccups, bogs, sputters from cruising to WOT. Yesterday I took it on a trail ride in muddy, tight trails with some shallow creek crossings. I noticed after awhile it started getting hiccups in the midrange and WOT and got worse and now today its the worst. I want to say it started after doing a creek crossing yesterday, but I cant pin point it to that. What was weird it would sometimes rip through the gears all the way to 6th with very few hiccups. Then once I took it to a hill climb it was missing the whole way up. It was as if it only was missing under heavier loads. I thought maybe some water got into somewhere it shouldn't so I let it sit over night to dry out. Today I started it, let it warm up. Ran okay with a few sputters at WOT. Did a 1st - 3rd hill climb and it ran fine until I hit 4th gear. Then after 4-5 mins of riding it got the worst it had ever been. I went to whip it around a turn and it bogged really bad. I would hit the throttle and I could barely get it into the power. It bogged until I got it back to the garage. I know you've heard this story 1000 times and that it could be a number of things. I just need direction as far as "what I should check 1st, then check THIS, if its not that, check THIS." Thanks guys, bear with me, I'm a noob. lol I'm going to try new plugs and I checked the filter and it didn't seem wet or dirty, just nicely oiled.
