00_Shee Posted September 2, 2013 Report Share Posted September 2, 2013 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.
