    Pro: more powerz
    Bigger
    Great aftermarket parts supply

    Cons: more powerz, blows tires on take off, no traction
    Bigger, many use a SHORTER swingarm for flat track,/mx
    Supplyers are wayyy proud of their parts _$_$$$$
    More complex
    Some parts ONLY OEM will do/work $$$$$$$
    Cheaper to buy new crank than rebuild

    Not for weak of wallet or riding. You need thick skin and your big boy pants on to hang on the Banshee forum. Can say ANYTHING as long as it's not racist , including saying things about your mamma, sister , wife, dog, farm animals. :eek:

    Lots of power. Costs lots of money to play.

    It will vibrate stuff loose,spin out, have you looking at the sky alot, and is a fun machine when you have it dialed in.

    If you can't tell, I have a love/hate relationship with my banshee.

    You can put a thousand into a banshee or you can put 100K into it. There is no end on modding a banshee other than your budget. You can only go as fast as the suspension allows.

    Sounds like and overpriced headache to mee :), 2 pistons, chambers, cooling system , ect
    If your diehard 2 stroker and want to pay to play then i would highly recommend no other quad maybe one of those monster ktms :)
    I had a blown up banshee and 2 blasters i was gonna build but i sold all of them and got 04 model with hydros and a spare bottem end, in the end i just know blasters too well and dont think i will ever switch
