Looking to buy a banshee this Saturday. Guy has a sweet deal on one 3 hours from me. Bike sounds a bit rough to me but I’m not a 2 stroke or atv guy. This will be my first 2 stroke Any help would be much appreciated. I attached a video of the bike running. Please let me know if this a good deal at 3k.

So I fired up the quad the other day and let it idle for about 5-10 minutes and it ran great then died.
I go to check it. No lights on dash, nothing.
Check the main fuse and it's blown. Key's off/out. Put in another and it blows immediately.
Pull out the meter and see that on the non-load side of the fuse holder there's continuity to ground.
Check all obvious things. Wiring diagram. Connectors. Frayed wires. Bad grounds.
Battery measures ok at 12.8v.
I'm dreading taking off the front plastics but I suspect the regulator/rectifier. The wiring diagram shows the red wire (the suspect wire) goes to the ignition switch and the regulator/rectifier.
Anyone else experience something similar and/or have any troubleshooting tips that may save me the grief of removing the plastics?

Some symptoms include: Pulling recoil right out of your hand, starter turning really slowly, constant dead batteries.
Thanks for watching!
Hello, great forum here!
I bought a non running 1998 Big Boss 500 6x6. The previous owners had done quite a bit of work to it. It has a new carburator, fuel pump, starter, adjusted the valves, new mid sprockets and chain. But they said it wouldn't run.
When I got it home I did get it to run, though not very well. It doesn't want to idle and there is a very loud knocking. I didn't run it very long. Hopefully it's just the clutch knocking. It has 4000 miles on the odometer. I popped off the valve cover and the cam looks ok, (it's not flat!) I haven't measured it yet. I still need to check compression.
There's no oil in the gearbox, found a crack in the case behind the output shaft. Looks like a mounting point?
I think I'll try and find a case half. I should probably tear apart the gear box first, it might be in bad shape inside. Who knows how long it was ran without oil. It does shift between all gears.
The rest of it is in fair condition, normal wear and tear for 4000 miles.
Sorry I don't have any pictures of it other than the cracks.
I should probably make sure the motor is good before I put money into the gearbox.
Any tips on things to look for would be appreciated!
New user and first time quad owner. I recently got a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 and am really excited to start working on it! I work in IT for a living and am an experienced mechanic, so at least I am not starting at 0 haha. Looking forward to hanging out and getting to know everybody!
