I have a 08 kfx-450 and thinking of going to a banshee. I only dune ride and have a drag bike so this would be for just playing around on. Thinking of a 421 4 mill or something a little bigger. What should i be looking for?

Put some KX cams & a FCI intake no air box, & a DASA on that KFX and you will have a great dune quad. By the way when you were riding your KFX at last years raptor ralley I noticed yours sounds totally different then both my brothers KFX's. Whats done to yours. John.

Everyones different, but I have a banshee and its a fun bike to ride. I still like riding my 450 better for general riding. My shee is a 4mil and its great for racing and tree shots but other then that it stays in my trailer.

If you have the money, there is a company out there that makes a fuel injection kit for the Banshee, arcticle I saw said it made 87hp.

Yeah, lots of engine work, but the fuel injection kit itself will give 10% gain overall by itself. Plus, you still get all the advantages:

low emmissions
better fuel economy
never have to re-jet
better top end horsepower
better low end torque
smoother powerband

This kit is for a single, but they should be able to accomodate a twin

You are correct, it was JSR, and it is a $2,000 kit. I was considering the HGT kit, until they told me I would have to have a battery and charging coil. It is alot to consider, maybe one day. Probably could mount a LT230 battery box behind the seat/under the grab bar. You could probably make room for the chaging coil under the seat. Then you would have to mount the control box somewhere on the frame.

I'd do anything to ride my banshee again. 87' with Serval porting and bored .40 over. It was radical:eek: Sadly the only thing that was tight on the quad was the motor. Bought for $1,200 and sold for $1,900. Pennsylvania has a high demand for Banshees thanks to more than half of them ending up in Downtown Philly.

Anyway, this thread is old but hopefully you get a chance to ride one because they are an absolute blast.
