you can do what ever you want to your 4 strokes but the banshee will still win , and 2 strokes are easy to work on

but i will agree that it depends on what type of riding you wanna do, im sure your 4 strokes are nice but the banshee is the king in my opinion

if you like the hard hitting powerband of a 2 stroke you might want to look a the yfz 450 it seems to have a more abrupt power delivery and the 450r seems to come on more smooth all 3 are great quads cant go wrong with any of them.

Dude - 2 strokes blow up after awhile? What are you freakin' talking about?
I've never done ANY motor work to my bike - and it still runs like a champ.

From your post - you shouldn't be mixing any fuel anyways.. "Hmmm - Is that 50 gas to 1 oil, or 50 oil to 1 gas..." This isn't rocket science.
Get the ATC250r ;-) (Sorry banshee guys - but I've been racing against them since the 80's... Just a long standing grudge I guess!)

depends what kinda riding.. you do.. yfz450 on a track with mods is untouchable.. a banshee on trail...not a chance in hell you will keep up.. my friend has over $10,000 in aftermarket parts and my banshee will eat it on trails and but doesn't do so well on tight tracks

you cant compare a banshee to a yfz 450 there are in completly different classes. a banshee is in the high performanc big bore class with a preditor or raptor or the best ds 650. if u are doing motor cross go with the yfz 450 not a 450r. but if u are trail riding your just haveing fun on small jumps go with the banshee or ds 650. banshees have better acceleration but they ds 650 goes faster.

my banshee hasnt broke down either its really dependable and very fast . after i put my toomey 6 pipes on with jet kit and high air flow kit its got atleast 20 more horse power, its fast enough for me and its not high maintenance and nothing has a power band like 2 strokes.
