Default Banshee Problems

I am confused shitless about my quad.

its a 2005 yamaha banshee with FMF fatty pipes and power core two silencers, i have it jetted at 260.

The other day i was riding around, and it was running great......but today i went to ride and it runs like shit, its starts, but it wont let me rev up past a certain point....

I have checked the cables, and cleaned the carbs tonight, now it hardley wants to run at all. im LOST,

any suggestions?

thanks, jim

check the T.O.R.S. (throttle override system) the housings on top of the carbs, and also check the parking brake switch on the clutch lever. they tend to stick and wont let them rev beyond a certain point. or if neither one of those you could be jetted too lean for cold weather, does it backfire? pull the plugs make sure they are not white. or light colored. they should be a dark brown to be safe. also check the compression on both cylinders make sure you did'nt melt a ring and are running one one cylinder, all these things are common on banshees.

that jetting almost sounds a little lean durning warm weather for your pipes. i have toomey t-5's which are comparable to fatty's and i am running 280's and it runs great from 45-90 degrees.

Eliminate TORS (if you haven't already) and ride it again.
