How fast have you had your ATV?

Recommended Posts

Calling you out on this... What tires, gearing, and RPM were you pulling to make this happen?

20inch box tires, geared down on the rear sprocket and up on the front sprocket. a good friend of mine is a sheriff and clocked me on several runs, 119 was as fast as i could get it.

Going down or up 1 tooth on the front sprocket would be equivalent to going up or down 3 teeth on the rear.

I do hope you understand your motor would have to rev up to 13,100rpm to reach that high of speeds with that gearing ratio.................

yes IF i ran those ratios of course, i went down like 8 teeth on the rear and up 2 on the front. It's not like 2 strokes are hard to get more revs out of anyway...

the max rpm's for a bone stock banshee is 9000. But it all depends on your modofcations. Banshee's with the power valves like the 421 cheetah's will rev up to 18000 RPM"s

No. A 421 with Cheetah cylinders wont touch 14k let alone 18k... Either way, it's not possible.

i know i ran 119 mph on my old banshee, I SAW THE RADAR GUN WITH MY OWN EYES... rather or not your agree i can care less. I KNOW WHAT I SAW...

as far as the 421 Cheetah cylinders, i have only been told this and have not looked it up for my self.

since you do not seem to understand, iLL TAKE YOU TO SCHOOL...

i ran a 16 tooth front sprocket

i ran a 30 tooth rear sprocket

this gives you a 1.875 ratio with 20'' rear tires

the banshee's Primary Gear is 2.869 this is at 10,000 r.p.m's for a built banshee.

Yamaha banshee Gear ratios are as follows

1.st gear ratio is 2.461

2ed.gear ratio is 1.812

3erd. gear ratios is 1.500

4th. gear ratios is 1.250

5th. gear ratio is 1.045

6th. gear ratio is 0.875

so technically speaking it would run 126 mph, this minus the tire friction and wind speeds produced there for i ran 119 mph and not the full 126.

Just tell her you were being chased by a swarm of bees and it was the only way to not get stung.

Anytime I come back from a ride with no broken bones and/or blood loss my wife is usually happy with me.

Talking about speed my daughter was riding my prairie 650 and her sometimes friend wanted to race with her Honda 250 rincon. My daughter was smart enough not to race. I think God she listen when I said be careful and don't do anything stupid. If the friend wants to know how bad an old 650 is me and her dad can drag'em and she can watch from the sidelines.

That's pretty fast. I have had quads up to about 70 before in the snow.

So have I, I think the fastest for me was like 74 mph on my 2005 suzuki king quad when I had it.

I've had a yamaha grizzly 660 up to about 60 and had a friend king quad 700 up to about 70.  For sport utility quads, that's pretty fast I think and not really going to do that in the woods or on trails. It's pretty impressive some of the speeds these sports quads are getting up to . Here's a fast as hell banshee..

      Hello, 
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Bear Tracker in the shop for repair. I have the service manual but it doesn't have all the information I need to fix the problem. I need to know the voltage output of the stator charge coil and pulse or trigger coil at cranking speed. The wiring diagram color code doesn't seem to match and that is compounded by the fact that the wiring harness CDI connector is missing so I have 7 wires that need to be connected to the CDI. I can not find a circuit diagram of the CDI which tells me where the pulse/trigger coil connects or the charge coil connects. The other 3 wires (black ground, orange ignition coil, and r/b ignition kill sw) also need to be connected. The CDI has a single 8 pin connector and has a P/N 4XE-00 F8T19871 -1122 number on it and I believe it to be OEM. However I think the Stator and pulse coil are aftermarket items. I have resistance tested everything and it all seems to be in spec. but I don't want to miss wire anything and cause damage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I need to figure out how to clean/fix or replace my neutral switch assembly On my 2008 Yamaha big bear 400 as generally the neutral light doesn’t come on when it is in neutral. To get it to come on I have to wiggle the foot shifter and hold it in just the right spot.
      I have googled it and can’t find much on the 400’s. I can’t find a service manual online and the parts manual is super vague.
      I think it is in the right side engine cover area, but not certain. 
       Any help would be great. thanks

      Unfortunately I didn't notice some of the rust hitting the undercarriage of my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660, but saw it the other day when I was doing some maintenance, oil change, air filter, spark plug, etc. The left side footrest broke and that's causing the plastic to hit the front wheel. It broke right at the welds from too much rust. Looks to me like what I need is (looked this up on yamahapartshouse.com):
      YAMAHA FOOTREST BOARD 5KM-27481-10 Left side (broken)
      YAMAHA FOOTREST BOARD 5KM-27488-10-00 Right side (rusted and will probably break eventually)

       
      Does anyone have a less expensive source? I did see on ebay a couple of listings but it still comes out to @ $50 each,

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
