I know this topic has been covered in other threads. I've used the search function. A lot of them are fairly old 2007, 2008 and most of them turn into a bunch of 10 paragraph posts from guys arguing about who's a bigger idiot. In addition, there seems like a lot more sponsors dealing with frame mods and manufacturing than when those posts were current. I have an 05 YFZ set up for dirt and a serval banshee set up for sand. Recently more and more of the tracks in my area have opened up their gates to quads for practice and racing. They just opened up a giant indoor arena track 5 minutes from my house that runs 7 days a week. Riding MX was the gateway drug that got me into this whole ATV addiction and I find myself wanting to get back into riding tracks. I'm almost 6'5" and both my machines have +1+1 stems, high rise mx bars, wider a arms, taller seats, and custom relocated foot pegs. With those mods, my banshee is the only sport ATV I've ever ridden that I actually felt comfortable and stable in the air. I don't think there is a whole lot more I can do to my YZF to eliminate the monkey humping a giant steel and plastic football feeling. I've taken the Shee out there but the frame geometry is a complete turd when it comes to cornering and has no chance of hanging with the modern 4 strokes. Doing a banshee frame with 250r or newer TRX or YFZ front suspension and rear link appears to be the only way I'm going to get something that feels comfortable and will also handle well enough to be competitive on the track. I know Lonestar and Laeger offer this setup but are there any sponsors doing this or any other ways to do a build like this. I'm going to talk to Laegereliminator about his setup but just curious if anyone else has some different or more current experience doing this. Thanks
I'm in the infant stages of planning a complete mx build that will most likely be done in a Laeger or Lonestar chassis. Curious what all you trail and mx guys are running for motor and pipe combos I've had a stock cylinder unported with FMF's and T5's, ported stock cylinder with T5's, Stock cylinder 4mil with Shearers, and current setup on my duner is a 421 ported Serval with Shearers. I have dyno charts for most of the motors I've had so if you have graphs of yours, it would be cool to see for a comparison. This will be a long build so I'd like to get an idea of what potential engine and exhaust components I should keep an eye out for. Thanks.
