My Banshee (optional)

Found 7 results

  1. Hello all, new here to the Banshee community and I'm in need of a bit of assistance, hoping somebody much more well-versed than I is able to chime in. I acquired a (basically) junk 1987 Banshee at a bargain price, although it's in very, very rough shape. I decided to completely strip it down to the frame and redo everything, including completely rebuilding the engine from the bottom up. Is this even possible? I don't have much experience with vehicle wiring, or wiring in general, but I'm not stupid either. I bought the Clymer manual and have studied the wiring diagram extensively. After gutting the wiring harness I have already found multiple cut wires/broken connections, so I'm glad I'm re-doing the wiring completely because it probably wouldn't have spark the way it was. The current harness is a hacked up mess, so I'm planning on removing most of the wires that aren't needed, such as TORS, throttle sensor, parking brake sensor and key ignitiion. I would still like to keep the headlights if at all possible, and my idea was to connect the headlights to the kill switch so that they're always on whenever the bike is running. I would get rid of the Off/Lo/Hi switch. Oh and one more question... If you just start cutting wires /not plugging them into the CDI connector tabs, does it effect the functionality of the CDI at all? Does the CDI need to sense a complete "circuit" (every wire on bike either grounded, or connected somehow,) or are every two wires independent of all other two wire pairs? I found a wiring diagram online that seems to represent what I am trying to do with my bike. I've attached it below. Thanks for all the help.
  2. hey everyone, Im new to this site and i was wondering is somebody out there has some usefull info for me. last year i bought a banshee from a friend that had major gear box problems for very cheap. The motor ran strong tho... started first or second kick every time. Instead of ripping the engine apart and fixing the bad gears in the trans, i decided to buy an engine off of a reputable seller on ebay. as soon as i got it, i slapped it right in. went to start it, and she didnt want to go. hit it with some starter fluid and it started but ran really rough and wouldnt hold an idle. after a little bit it died and wouldnt start again. took the plugs out and no spark. i replaced the stator, wiring harness (OEM one was hacked to peices), flywheel, woodruff key, kill switch cluster, BR8ES plugs, ignition coil, key delete (twisted the white and red wires), One of the connectors that was coming out of the CDI had been melted (housed the orange ignition wire) i was able to check all of my new parts except the CDI. i bought a cheap $60 one off ebay (probaly not the right choice). Not sure if they sold me a junk CDI or im missing something here. oh and TORS had been deleted since i got it. deleted off carbs and no black box on the frame. i believe the voltage regulator had nothing to do with ignition so i left that alone. If anyone can provide me with any info that would be great! -wrxguy97

  4. Do stock cdi boxes have the ability to output tachometer readings? What is the best and/or cheapest way to measure rpms with out buying a device like Trail Vapor?
  5. Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing GYT-R CDI unit for Banshee 1997-2006. Discontinued and hard to find. Used in excellent condition. Bracket included. $170.00 shipped via USPS.
  6. my super reliable banshee started bugging out last weekend...as i was riding, it just dies. my carbs are tuned perfectly, my compression is great. it is a one kick to start bike. when i try to start it, it will fire each cylinder once or twice, and thats it. occasionally it would fire right up and run normal. gotta be something in the electrical system, right?
