1 Banshee problem on Sun Mar 28, 2010 3:27 pm

I need to find a person or place that will work on my banshee. It is acting up and not sure what the prblem is. Most shops wont work on it since it is a 98. After a few months of it being on craigslist now I have people wanting to buy it and I don't want to sell a bike that has probelms. I know for sure it needs new seals. but other then that i don't know. So if anybody could help me I would appreciate it. I'm looking for somebody or place that don't over price labor. I had a guy work on it before, but i didn't like his workmanship and he didn't know much about banshees even though he was a mechanic at liberty cycle. thanks Nick R.

What do you mean by acting up, cutting out on top end, won't idle, hard to start, need more information, which seals are you talking about, crank seals ? Would love to help if I can.

well in neutral it revs fine but once in gear it dosent rev out it sounds kinda boggy.It seems not to have high rpm power band I also im haveing a lot of grease come out around rear carrier. it also needs to be tuned properly which it seems i can't do right. i mean a good look at the whole engine by someone who knows their stuff would be good.

i like to go to Mcbrides Yamaha up in St joe. i have never had them do any work but they have always been able to get parts for my older things. I have heard that they are good just a little slow about getting the work done.

if your choke tube is on and your slides are not backwards sounds like you got reed problems or problem with tors has them been removed?.

I was wondering if it might be my reeds I havent got a chance to check them out. If so I have a extra pair. I just want to have this bike be ready so I can either sell it. So I can get me another atv for the club meeting in april or just have this one running good so I can take it to meeting. thanks for the help guys i appreciate it.

my guess is wrist pins and bearings wore out causing some play in there which caused the piston to slap. If you are lucky the cylinder wall is not all jacked up but I wouldn't bet on it, most of the time when the piston is gouged that bad it will definitely tear up the wall. I would do a top end rebuild and have it bored out a bit, keep it or sell it right after the rebuild, be sure to keep your receipts though so you can prove you replaced the Pistons, Rings, Clips, Wrist Pins, Bearings and gasket kit.

We have plenty of members here to help you fix it so dont flip out, depending on what parts you need you can get a top end kit for 80 bucks and up and a complete kit for 150 and up, then you have plenty of buddies here that will help you out.

wow That doesnt look good at all ,what does the intake holes look like on the top? are they scored like that to or is it just the bottom that almost looks like you may have something stuck in your lower cylinder housing or in your crank case i would do what rick said and pull the top end off ,you could of broke a ring or as Geoff said lost a C clip .I wouldn't run it no more for sure until you see whats going on

sorry to see the damage i was gonna say if it wasnt reeds it was a top end but was hoping for reeds.. need any banshee parts let me know i might have it might not.. i wonder why it has so much scoring right there at the intakes normally it on the sides.. one's i have seen anyways...anyways glad i save you a few bucks paying a mech to tell you that the top end is bad..

i seen the rest of the post and know that it has some major problems but when selling something i never have bad feelings as long as i'm honest to the buyer and let him know everything that i know is wrong. that way there's no hard feelings. like the rest of the guys said a top end isn't bad. and it will help to keep the price up when it is running when you sell it.

Yeah i figured when i looked at it was going to need a new top end. I guess while I'm at it I will replace all gaskets and maybe even change the domes to so can run on pump gas, but i don't know if i want to lose the 110 race fuel power though lol.

yeah i don't understand why it looks like that on that side i've seen typical wear on both sides but that is awful. luckily it happened before i sold it who ever bought it wouldn't be thinking i ripped them off because I'm not that type of person. I hopefully will have it ready for the next buyer or at least ready for the ride at perry

my problem is finding a good place to find kits. also what size pistons I need cause my cousin couldn't remember what he bored it out to. He said it was .40 or .50 over and I haven't looked at it yet to see, but it will prolly need a bore job. I just hope it aint a mess inside when I it get a toren apart. Thanks to everyone for the help. hopefully it wont be out of commisson to long. I might get the non riding blues, because I have two bikes now that don't run right when the weather gets nice, but thats the way it goes. maybe when I get it running it will be even faster oh ya! maybe I can get it it to hit 120mph lol

Yea, that sucks Nick, hope you get it back together soon, like you said, the weather gotta turn one of these days. If you want to check around for parts or service, I've had good luck with The Dirt Shack out of St. Joe.
