ya, banshees don't have the handleing or low end for things like mx or trails, the z has all this and reverse, and still will go fats, if you ride dunes go for the banshee.

thanx,
dale

is it worth it to get one[/b]
I would have to say no. 2-smokes are cheaper to build yet the banshee cost $100?? (MSRP) For its age and price i wouldn't get a new one, just get an old cuz their all the same exccept for aftermarket parts. Also, if u have to go new get one of the new 2003's with the flames, they look pretty bad ass.

GO WITH THE Z...lol...the banshee needs big areas to ride on...its got lots of power, and good for racing...while the Z is a really nice trail machine, and much quieter then the banshee, which is nice when trail riding...

get the Z, with the moey you are saving, you can get a Z faster than a bashee, still have better handling, have reverse, and still have the ease of maintenance of a 4 stroke!

Yeah but with the money u put in a Z the shee would go faster. I actually think banshee's r horrible for racing cuz other people have to much money and their will always be a faster one.

thats a pretty good point. i just saw some magazine had a 3 cylindar banshee. i know that imagination would have a lot to do with these projects, but the money sure does help!

Those 3 cylinder ones r sweet!! Imagine putting the 3rd cylind on the shees they had in dirtwheel that were pulling 105hp!! It would be the fasest thing ever!

it would be just ridiculous, but i like to turn when i ride. how could you possibly turn that thing. theres no way a 105hp quad would be able to turn a corner. haha

Sure it could!! Just use the power to slide it out! I think i would need some +10 a-arms and a +12 axles and a +10 swingarm, then i would be more confident, or maybe make it for TT events.
