This is list of all banshee cylinders in production and obsolete(out of production). If you have anything to add, correct or share; post here or pm me.




CP industries Inc:

  • Cheetah Cub: Works with regular heads commonly found on stock bikes like Noss/pro design heads. Typically used for Drag/Dunes due to power coming on higher in rpm range. Uses stock reeds. Usually referred to as a Cub.
    • Bore – 64mm to 68mm
    • Stroke – 54mm to 68mm
    • CC – 347cc to 494cc
  • Serval Cub: Works with regular heads common on trail bikes like Noss/Pro Design heads. Typically used for trails, play bikes, dunes due to power coming on lower and smoother in the rpm range. Can be ported into drag cylinders since there is extra material. Uses stock reeds.
    • Bore – 68mm
    • Stroke – 54mm to 64mm
    • CC – 392cc to 465cc
  • Wampus Cub/Wampus Serval Cub: These are casted externally to be made to look like stock cylinders but they are still monoblock design. It's meant to be a more stealthy look. A knowledgeable person will not be fooled. Uses stock reeds. (The Wampus gets its name from the Cherokee Indian word meaning “Ghost Cat”).
    • Bore – 64.5mm to 68mm
    • Stroke – 54mm to 68mm
    • CC – 358cc to 494cc

    • Bore – 72mm
    • Stroke – 54mm to 68mm
    • CC – 440cc to 554cc

    • Bore: 72mm
    • Stroke: 54mm to 68mm
    • CC: 440cc to 554cc
  • Cheetah:. The cylinders can have power valves. Optional power valves use exhaust pressure to open the the power valves. Typically used for Drag/Dunes. Uses Honda 250R reeds.
    • Bore: 65mm to 74.5mm
    • Stroke 54mm to ?
    • CC: 358cc to ?

    • Bore: 84mm – 85mm
    • Stroke:

"129mm spread Billet cases (AKA Schimitar cases) are only available with "BIG BEARINGS" (72mm). We offer them in strokes from +20mm to +30mm. These cases were originally deighned for the Ski Doo MXZ 800 cylinders however over time CP Industries has produced a cylinder for these cases called a Schimitar with a massive 95mm bore taking this engine to a hole nother level."


This chart applies to all Banshee cylinders(Not just CP Industries).



Bore and stroke are in mm. Engine Size is in cc.

Engine size (cc) = (Bore (mm)/20) * (Bore (mm)/20) * (Stroke (mm)/10) * pi * # of cylinders



  • Big Bore/392cc: Directly from Vito’s website: Stealth stock appearance sleeved and bore able -10 ports -- with triple exhaust -- up to 90hp at rear tire on race gas- cannot be used with stock heads unless they are custom machined for big bore or use big bore domes ordered separately
    • Bore: 68mm
    • Stroke: 54mm (stock) 


  • Big Bore/392cc: Nickel carbide coating. Needs a lot of work to run well and up to par with most people's expectations. Basically a worse version of Vito’s.
    • Bore: 68mm
    • Stroke: 54 (stock)  


China Ebay cylinder kits:

Can be found for around $165-$250 on ebay. Comes from probably china. You get what you pay for. You can’t expect much for a complete top end(cylinders, gaskets, pistons etc all for that price). Typically seen on the Bansheehq Facebook group from people who don’t listen and/or research. Do not buy this. Common vendor: Mr. Sum Ting Wong.






      Info directly from DASA's website: Don't be fooled by the imitators. Dasa is the home of the ORIGINAL Superjet Big Bore Powervalve Cylinder. Dan Lamey has been developing and producing these cylinders for over 15 years. Dasa (Dan Lamey) has a reputation of being the leader in watercraft development. Dasa has helped to create numerous champions such as Nicolas Ruis, Eric Malone, Chris MacClugage, Alessander Lenzi, Tara Lahoe, Jeff Jacobs, Lee Stone, and many more. Dasa Big Bore Powervalve Cylinders are the only cylinders trusted by Factory Yamaha Racing. If Factory Yamaha can trust Dasa to put them on the top of the podium, so can you!

  • Complete Power Valve Assembly
  • Billet Head & Domes
  • All Necessary Hardware, O-Rings, & Gaskets

Driveline Performance:

  • Assassin: Stock appearing cylinder. Nikasil coated. Designed to be used with +4mm long rod stroker crankshaft with 115mm rods. This cylinder kit has higher port timings for riders who are wanting more mid to top end power. The port specs on these cylinders are 196 exhaust and 124 transfer durations. The exhaust port is much larger then a stock cylinder so peak H.P. will be much higher.
    • Bore: 68mm
    • Stroke: 54mm to 64mm
  • Assassin LP: Nikasil bore, triple exhaust ports, larger intake and transfer ports. This cylinder kit has lower port timings for riders who are wanting more mid and low range power bands. The port specs on these cylinders are 191 exhaust and 121.5 transfer durations. The exhaust port is much larger then a stock cylinder so peak H.P. will still be much higher even though the ports are lower durations.
    • Bore: 68mm
    • Stroke: 54mm to 64mm


ESR(Eddie Sanders Racing):

ESR basically sold pro x cylinders. This per ESR themselves when i emailed them for info.




  • Powervalved. Mono block design.
    • Bore –   ?
    • Stroke –    ?
    • CC –    ?


  • Small Block: These cylinders have triple ports and boost ports. Most would consider a dune port. They have plenty material to be tailored how you want. They have a much larger coolant capacity than competitors’ cylinders, and better coolant flow characteristics. They have changeable intake runners and exhaust flanges. You can run stock banshee reeds or YZ250 reeds, and small-bore or big-bore pipes. Equipped with power valves from a Ski-Doo Summit 800.  As of December 2011, there have been 4 generations of small block twisters since it was released. They no longer make small block twister cylinders with power valves.

Cheetahs were avalable in a 74.5 bore and 16mil and larger stroke.

Stock cases with epoxy can be ran over 14mm.

Great idea for a thread


what's the limit on stroke for cheetahs? What's the limit on expoy on stock cases?

Also, the Twister Small Block's no longer have Powervalves.



I've been adding to the list you sent me.


I appreciate it!

My big block and small block use cr125 reed blocks.
