mrparty21 Posted January 8, 2022 Report Share Posted January 8, 2022 I am converting my 421 Banshee to a track/trail build. I want to build a banshee that I can ride 50/50 at the track and in the tight CT trails. I spend Saturdays at the tracks here in New England, mostly MX23 in Mass. Also want to do a couple of races this year, not an entire series. I also ride in the trails around here which kind of suck, but i'm looking to go to upstate NY/VT/NH a few times this year where the trials are much more open and there's some big fields I can get wide open in. The 421 setup I had sucked for trails and track. What parts should I put on my bike to make it suited for all of the above? Engine: Currently I'm getting stock cylinders ported by Herr Jugs. He's doing his MX hardcore port 4mil Long rod crank 21cc Domes Coolhead Stock Carbs with Vito's needles Billet manifold with Chariot reeds Paul Turner Mids (if they ever come back in stock) Stock air box with lid removed Controls: Trail Tech Vapor ASV Levers Flexx Bars Alba +2 Stem Alba Nerf Bars Suspension: Wicked +2 A-arms Tusk Extended Axle (+1 to +3) Lone Star billet hubs Elka Legacy Long travel front and rear shocks Elka Long travel linkage Swingarm ? 14/40 sprockets (honda pattern hub). DID regular chain Questions: 1. What length swingarm should I run. I have a lonestar +2 on that I was using with my 421. I see some guys saying that -1 makes the bike feel like a 250r. What do they mean by that? Do you guys recommend a -1 or stock length? 2. What wheels/tires do you guys recommend I run for this setup? RIght now im on 10 inch wheels (3/2 offset) with hoosier trail tires. Was thinking about trying a set of 8inch wheels with a 4/1 offset on the track and using the 10 inchers in the trail. (and go down to a 38t sprocket with the 8inchers) 3. Is there anything I should consider changing or adding? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
