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..

      I have a 2000 warrior thats seems to run fine. But I am having a problem with the gas boiling in the tank. Does anyone else have this problem or can anyone give me suggestions on how to fix this issue? Thanks Bill.
    • By Dave Ayoub
      Ok i am not quick to jump on a forum and post a question without doing my own part and trying to research and solve the problem myself but I cannot find any definitive information anywhere about my problem. I have a Big Bear 350 that I picked up very cheap which had been sitting in a field for years. I am not new to building wheelers but this one has me beat. After rebuilding top end and replacing the carb it fires right up. The vin has some number worn off from being next to the shifter but from the parts in the clutch i assume it is early since 87 parts seem to be the only ones that match. Thats when the plot thickened. 
      Reverse works fine but when in the forward gears it would not go past 1st and was hard to get into neutral. ie. a it took a million clicks up to thump into 1 and as many down to find neutral. still never getting past 1st. within minutes i could hear metal screeching and whirling around in the clutch side of the motor. I took the cover off to find that 3 out of the 4 springs on the centrifugal clutch had broken and were shredded. Also the black mechanism that the pawl on shift shaft grabs moves was loose so it wasnt always grab to change the gear on the transmission. I tightened that mech, and replaced the springs assuming it would solve the problem since the gears were not actually changing from the lever and the carrier should obviously not only have 1 spring left. 
      After putting everything back together it did go into 1st fairly easy but then i again couldnt get it back to N without a million clicks down and couldnt get it to go past 1st. I did one time get it into a higher gear who knows what one but i gained some speed and dropped rpm.
      If i jack both the front and the back wheels off the ground and run the motor it becomes much easier to shift and i can get it to run through the gears pretty well. Usually going into N without a huge fight. not perfect but it does hit neutral and roar while spinning the wheels instead of gain rpm and with the power. 
      I have tried every possible position on the clutch adjustment screw without any noticeable result. I think this could potentially be where my problem lies at this point.
      does anyone know if the case is supposed to be threaded? because mine is not. obviously it seems as though it should be since every other bike ive touched has been. i even took the cover off my quadrunner to make sure it wasnt crazy.
      when the screw is adjusted and the jam nut tightened the screw will just slide back out since there is no threading in the case. accomplishing nothing. 
       
      Does anyone have any insight on any of this? Are my plates stuck, Centrif clutch worn out, case stripped or something else crazy im over looking?

      On Wednesday, September 18, our ATV was stolen from in front of our house after the locks were cut. This was around 2-3:15 AM.
      We realize the likelihood of ever finding the four-wheeler again is slim to none, but we had to try and put the word out there. We have put countless hours in to restoring this Banshee. It was more than just a passion project, it also was our investment for a down payment for our future house. We are devastated and beyond heart-broken. If you see any suspicious postings on Facebook Marketplace, Letgo, Craigslist, etc., or have any other information, please contact us or the Prince William County PD.
      *Update* We received a tip last night that it was possibly posted on Facebook Marketplace around 8AM yesterday morning with only pictures of the front and of the back of the ATV. The description only said: PM for more details. This came up in someone’s FB Marketplace feed that has it set for a 50 mile radius from Hartwood, VA. She also has her feed set to automatically translate everything into Spanish, so It could also possibly be posted in Spanish.
      WHAT WAS STOLEN:
      2004 Yamaha Banshee YFZ 350
      White plastics with bright green and pink graphics/stickers
      STOLEN FROM:
      Prince William County, Triangle, Virginia
      $500 REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO RECOVERY. BONUS FOR CONVICTION.

      i have a 2004 Yamaha Kodiak 450 and it is losing oil but does not smoke what is it
    • By Chase Cook
      I have a 2001 yamaha yfm350x and it has a brand new top end, new carburetor (stopped the leaking problem and is now getting gas to it), new CDI box, new stator, handlebar switches work, off-and-on switch works, new starter solenoid (works), new neutral relay (works), ordered a new Rectifier on its way, good strong blue spark. Has compression, valves are right. Timings is right and is TDC. When I try to start it it just makes a loud popping noise like its backfiring but it's not because its not running when I push the throttle all the way and when i barly push the throttle it try to start but won't, so I'm trying to figure out what could be the problem not starting now, Getting very fustrated with this thing and put some work and money into it and it's not still not working. This is the only atv I ever had that I can not figure out the problem to get running. Need help please..

      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

    • By Connor Tuftin
      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?

      Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
      In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
      Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
      If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.
      Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
