First off, the power band myth really only applies to two-strokes. The thing is, like MWKE said, the "power band" is the sweet spot in the engines power curve where the engine produces the most power. In the two stroke world this is also referred to as being "on the pipe" Two strokes generally have a very distinct powerband that has a very abrupt and noticeable hit. It occurs in different places with different machines. For instance, I have a CR 500 powered quad that hits very low in the rpm range, it feels like it wants to rip your arms off and pulls strong through the mid-range, but drops off on the top end. A Banshee on the other hand, usually has next to no power on the bottom end, but comes on like a pissed off tornado once you hit the mid-range and it will pull hard through the top end. Since the "power band" is such an important thing when tuning a two-stroke, it is talked about alot and when things are talked about alot, people who don't know what is going on get false ideas in their head and may thing that the "power band" is a physical object that is part of the motor. This, of course, is a myth, and since it is such a wide spread myth, it has become a bit of a running joke to those of us who know that there is no actual "power band" inside any engine. By the way, bands is spelled with a d. Bands not bans. A power ban, would be a restriction on power, which I believe is the opposite of what you are looking for.

But seriously, I will ask MWKE's question again, are you joking here, or are you actually looking for a power band?

Every motor has a "Power Band" Brotha....Just not as noticeable in a 4 stroke,,,They are Smoother through the Range.....


However,,,,If you really want to buy some " Power Bands " I put a package together just for you....

If you really want to get more power out of your Warrior, start looking at things like cam upgrades, have some head work done, big bore or stroker kits, high compression pistons, bigger carb, and exhuast upgrades. Just shop around and find a nice upgrade package that fits your budget. Here is a link to a site that sells parts and does machine work for good prices.

      So my parents have not let me get my license yet and I need to get around to gets parts and stuff.  Answer: Yamaha CW50 scooter.  This is a 2-cycle self-mixing scooter that so far, I am really surprised with the power output and speed.  It reaches about 45mph since the speedo has been disconnected and has plenty of power for two riders.  Its stupid looking, but with some work and a title and plate, it'll take me around town..  My issue is this:  No key.  I bought it for $150 from a friend and he bought it from someone for $100 who wired in a switch in place of the ignition.  That guy got it form his neighbor who's renter left it behind.  The scooter will run with this switch on or off (kill switch on handlebar kills engine)  To get it tiled and a plate so its road worthy, I need to get the ignition working either by a replacement key or a new ignition.  All wires are cut to the ignition and the switch turned on the power to the signal light switch.  Also, the 2-cycle oil was leaking out the carb, through the air filter and onto the scooter.  also, it runs great, but its making blue smoke with throttle and the muffler is wet with oil.

      (I have new signal lights for it btw)  So the issues I have with it summed up:
      No key (need new ignition) smokes burnt out headlight-  can I replace them with LEDs?

      I was wondering if the complete headlight assembly from a 06 yfz450 would fit my 05 raptor 660r looking for a quick responses I found a set new for 25 bucks and either way dont want to pass up but was qurious.

      So my latest find is a Moto 4 250. Looked in good shape, started right up but would backfire and die upon acceleration but you 
      could get it to go if you were good with the throttle. I figured it was the carb. was a brand new Chinese carb, he didn't have original.
      I took it apart and cleaned it, only thing I found was some debris in main jet and the main adjustment on bottom was at 41 turns. Cleaned 
      it out and set at 2 turns, re installed. Starts up, runs better actually drove it but seems really sluggish, once I hit 3rd gear could barely pull
      it. Rechecked everything, even ordered a new carb as I had this problem with another atv but still same problem. Now I pull it apart and 
      decided to check compression, I show only 85 psi. I checked valve adjustment (after aligning up cam gear to mark on case). to make sure not too tight still right at 85 psi. 
      I assume I need to pull the head and look at the valves, Any ideas I am missing something?  motor does not smoke but is super sluggish. 
      The specs I find are off the downloaded manual of a 94 but figure should be the same. It states compression standard is 128  and Minimum is 114 and Max is 142
      Any other Ideas before I tear it down? Thanks in advance Az

      Hi, All

      I started this project a while ago.. I have decided to make one thread I can continuously update..

      So , here we go. I got this Raptor 80 in really bad condition.. Rear end frozen, Engine toast, tires dry rotted, tons of rust..etc.. They admitted they beat on it very hard.

      Since they do not make these with a drive shaft anymore I decided to restore it from top to bottom..

      These are photos of when I got it home.

      Next up, the tear down..

      First, I needed to tear it down and determine if the rear end was still good... As we all know... That is where it would be cost prohibitive to restore if it is trashed..

      Got it completely stripped down and I lucked out... The rear Drum brake was caked solid inside with dried mud. That was causing the rear end to lock up. Took off the rear brakes and the rear end spun perfectly smooth.

      Once I got it all stripped apart I needed to take the finish off all the parts. I am going to be powder coating the frame and many parts.. Once the finish is off each part it will need to be sandblasted to white metal .. The guy I use for powder coating gives me a hefty discount if I bring the parts to him ready to go.

      You could just sand blast, but that would take a long time to get the finish off. First I used Aircraft Paint Remover.. That stuff is pretty toxic Goggles and Resperator are required. That quickly gets you down to the metal... Then you can sand blast to white metal pretty quickly...

      I had another thread I had started about a problem with the tear down... It has some great info .... here is the link... It is about removing the frame bushings. ....

      My old Big Bear nearly left me stranded but I managed to limp back to my garage just before it died. Now No Spark. I’ve changed the obvious, inexpensive and easy parts- spark plug & coil without any luck. 
      Ive stripped it down and traced all of the related wiring, checking as many connections as I can but no luck again. 
      Next I pulled the cover and accessed the stator housing to inspect and do some resistance testing to ID a possible short. 
      Here are my readings:
      Source coil- 325 ohms
      Pickup coil- 225
      Can anyone tell me if these are good numbers, and if good, where to go next?
      I assume my next purchase will either be a new stator or CDI, but since neither of these tend to be returnable items I want to be as sure as I can I’m gonna get a resolution to the problem!!

I know i would need to up the Jets and stuff for starter but Is it just that simple or do I need blow off valves and like some time on regulator on it or so forth? Trying get ideal what i would need

      Hi Everyone
      This is my first post and I was wondering if there is anyone who can help me solve a problem I have with my Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 Fitted with a Mikuni Carburetor . The year of the quad is around 1998, the reason I am not sure of the date is, there wasn't any paperwork and no details on the frame either.
      The quad had a bad leak from the carb overflow which indicated that the float needle valve was blocked or passing so I replaced this and put everything back together. The quad ran really well until I took it onto some rough ground to have a ride around, a few hours later the engine started to run really rough as if the engine was flooding. I have removed the carb again and cleaned the needle valve out and the whole of the carb just in case there where any dirt behind it. Engine now runs fine again but fuel has started to run out the carb overflow again.
      I have tried everything to try and stop the fuel leaking out the overflow but its still happening. My last thoughts where to adjust the float level and its still happening.
      Has anyone got any thoughts on the problem or could suggest whats causing the fuel leaking out the overflow.
      Thanks for reading
