Not very good, I would say. Depending on the extent of the motorwork.

What is his set up??

i would say no also,banshees are fast in a straight line.2 strokes build alot of power on the top end,try to set it up for a short run.only go like 2 or 3 telephone lenghts.my uncle has a quad racer 500 thats ported and polished and piped,i can get him in a short run but up top i cant touch him

I would run him just for kicks, but dont get your hopes up on winning. Banshees can be retarted if built right.

Don't race him on pavement. Take him to the dirt. They have no grip in the dirt. Race him 300 to 400 feet. You should change your front sprocket for a 15 T. Good lock and let us know how it went :thumbsup:

Ive raced a banshee before, but he had no motor work. . .all he did was spin though, you definitely have a good chance on a short run, but if he hooks it up ya never know. . .

I have won a few drags against banshees in the sand,but they were lightly modded,the heavily modded ones I can't touch and are the fastest machines at the drags. :mad:

You will hands down whoop his lilly ass...As long as you request a race using the reverse gear. other than that, racing a Banshee is just not usually a good idea. You can beat a few, sure, but in the end they are still the dominant player on the drag strips.

Thanks for everything and I'll let you guys know how it goes. FYI... The guy is a huge gearhead.

LOL... I was thinking you may have had a change till you said that... Gearheads and banshees mesh well!

Do you all think an added cam and high com. piston will do the job? I hope so because Im about to go up against a modded banshee on a drag run.

My brother is a banshee rider and he is bored out to a 375, a 32nd shaved of the head, T5s and K&N intake. You can see what I have. He beats me every time unless we start at the bottom of a steep hill and race to the top then we are about =. If he can get into 3rd or 4th gear while I'm in third he's gone.

From what he told me he was out watching the hill shoots and a YFZ was dominating the hill. Little brother beat him by 2 legnths.

Good luck them damn 2 strokes are fast.

Depending on how modded the banshee is and also the gearing of it. If its built for top speed you will have your hands full.

We did an 1/8mile ice drag this winter and my buddy waxed me on this but it's pretty stout, He's a factory mechanic for the KTM supermoto team so he knows his shit. :(

Really just depends whats done to it. Not to be cocky at all, but I would never back down from a Raptor with a High Compression piston and a cam on my Cub banshee. Pretty much, if he was a cub, its going to get ugly fast!

Thats because you sound like you got $10000 in mods in the shee. How much all that work cost you. WTF is a cub? How much for that alone?
