    Pros: Engine, general toughness, sound, FUN
    Cons: chain tightening, air filter, stock tires

    Summary: OK. Let's start with me. I'm 18, ridden MX bikes since 9. I bought the banshee july 2000, it was and still is my first ATV. I bought it 4500$can, it's a 98 model (see pics of me at http://communities.msn.ca/NoengineNoblast ). Why did I buy it? ... read more

    Pros: Power, reliability, sound, FUN!
    Cons: A fully adjustable front shock would be nice!

    Summary: I hope this to be of general interest...and maybe even 1/2-way grammatically reasonable! I've been acquainted with Yamaha 2T twins since '71 with an R5B. Had several others (R5s and RDs) after that with literally hundreds of thousands of miles on the ... read more

    Pros: fast,powerfull,handling,looks,comfort,reliablity greater then some 4strokes
    Cons: tires,not the best shocks,no reverse,no electric start

    Summary: Why the banshee? Why the banshee of all fourwheelers you ask? Why is the banshee better then the trx250r,quadracer250,tecate 4 you ask? What makes the banshee a staple of fourwheelers of the past and to come? Well for starters remember back to ... read more

    Pros: mid and top-end power, reliability, parts availibilty
    Cons: little low end power, bad rear tires, sometimes size and weight can be an issue

    Summary: I got my banshee nearly a year ago. I did all kinds of research, including checking out reviews posted on this site. Most people were telling me to get a 400ex, or spend some exta money and get a raptor. For me a 400ex was out of the question. My ego ... read more

    Pros: Speed(one of the fastest quads availible), easy to upgrade
    Cons: Very bad low end power, not good for jumps

    Summary: First the pros. Let me start off by saying that this quad is fast. I personally think that it's faster than the Raptor, which means it's the fastest quad out there. I don't have a speedometer but I can tell you that I've raced a YZ 250 and won. ... read more

    Pros: Nothing can give you the rush of pure acceleration like a Banshee.
    Cons: Junky Air filter Intake.

    Summary: The pure adrenaline rush of a Banshee is like no other machine. And for a few hundred bucks for Pipes and a Good Airfilter setup its even more fun (check out www.albaaction.com for a good deal on a banshee with pipes) No four stoke will ever match the ... read more

    Pros: unbelievable power and great handling
    Cons: tightening the chain

    Summary: I recommend the Yamaha Banshee for anyone who wants unbelievable power between their legs. I bought my Banshee for $3500.00. This way I could put $2500.00 in to it and have a quad that would spank a stock one that cost the owner the same. I had it ... read more

  • Banshee, top of the line

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Power, Speed, sound, aftermarket upgrades
    Cons: Cooling system,top end problems

    Summary: Yes the Raptor 660,the DS650, and the 400EX, Maybe bigger in size (and price when it comes to raptor and DS)but none of these machines compare to the awsome power of a 350 TWIN 2-Stroke. You ride a banshee for one month, then go on and ride ANY 4 stroke, ... read more

    Pros: Power,Sound,AfterMarket Parts, 6-speed
    Cons: None Really

    Summary: I Bought me a Banshee because I love the 2-stroke engine that produces such quick revs. I am 22 years old and have owned 6 4-wheelers and would not ever buy anything else. It will outrun any of the "Quick Reving" 4-strokes. I do not know why they keep ... read more

    Pros: Sound, Hop-Ups
    Cons: 2 stroke, Low end

    Summary: The Banshee is a great ATV, but it does have its problems. First off, it develops nearly NO low end power. The low compression engine just isnt designed for low end power. This is why it is a horrible trails machine... You are either really ... read more
