I’ve been having a lot of trouble with this POS raptor. I just got it and if it’s not one thing it’s another. At first it would take a few tries of pressing the button to start. Sometimes the first push. It was like sometimes it didn’t have enough power tu turn over. I’d press it again and it would start. The overheating light would come on every time I’d press the button but I’m guessing that’s normal. I just fixed something else on it and I get on and now it doesn’t do anything. No crank no nothing. I flip the on switch to the right and press the button and no lights no noise, nothing. I flip the switch again and all it does is turn on the light of the overheating again. I press and press and press and nothing. No noise no crank, nothing. I’m tired of this damn raptor no lie. What can it be

Sounds like you hate it. Just get rid of it, how much you want?

I'll your buy your POS at an appropriate price...

"I just fixed something else on it and I get on and now..." is the pertinent statement. What did you do to it?

I just get bugged when a nube comes into OUR house and immediately insults our pride and joy while asking for help but giving virtually no usable information...

Or, has 2 or 3 of us give detailed information and they never come back.

He did come back, 2 days in a row.
I always thought a Shee was a girls bike. Or a 70lb kid waiting at the bottom of competition hill to smoke us fat guys.

Problem fixed thank you
To the OP, we're actually a bunch of nice guys that really do want to help, but a better description would have helped us. Once and a while we get carried away, so you have to have a thick skin and give it right back.

WELCOME (back) TO THE FORUM.

Literal smoke, lol, I Love 2-strokes.
But, at 42, I now really enjoy pushing a button to start, backing up whenever I need to, and creeping through with quiet exhaust.
I think the 700 is Yamaha's best atv to date...but still love a Banshee and Blaster...2 of the best machines of all time

I've built plenty of Honda 250R's and big bore 310R's and loved them. A young, fellow worker, with the help of the boss, bought a Banshee to run circles around my 250R. I didn't know this at the time, it was their secret. The next trip to the sand dunes in Oregon, he wore himself out trying to catch me, but never did, lol. The next trip, he had carbs, Toomey T6, and stock gears. Same results, haha. I told him to drop 2 teeth on the counter sprocket. He got closer to catching me, but could never out ride me, lol again.

Youth and stupidity are no match for age and treachery. Hahaaaaaa!

Kind of reminds me of AJ Duesler....at least Leeroy didn’t take our money and run.
Hey Leeroy just give us a follow up that’s all we ask! It will help future readers years from now with the same issue.
