    2001 Yamaha Banshee Restoration Thread

    She's on the ground! What a feeling when I stood back to take a look. A lot of hours into this bad boy. I need to adjust the toe, bleed the front and rear brakes, and fine tune a few items but for the most part, she is ready for the motor! The only plastics that came in so far was the rear...

    2001 Yamaha Banshee Restoration Thread

    Still waiting on the A-Arms (coming Tuesday) but I pretty much did as much as I could until then. My body and rear swing arm skid plate came in. I installed the rear and had to do a little modifying for it to fit. I have an aftermarket chain guide that’s much larger than stock so it needed to...

    2001 Yamaha Banshee Restoration Thread

    Got a lot done yesterday. The shocks came in a few days early. I was able to get pretty much the entire rear suspension done. Axle went in very smooth, as well as the shock. I ordered a rear caliper bracket since I didn’t realize it didn’t come with the new caliper I bought. I also think the...

    Got some work done today. I installed of the other components to the rear swing arm. I also installed all new grease fittings, and greased what I could so far. I also installed all of the chain guides, as well as the ignition, front brake lines, rear rotor onto its hub, sprocket onto its hub...

    Gm Vortec 8.1L?

    I have a 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 HD with the 8.1L and the Allison 5 Speed auto. I got the truck in 2013 with 91K on it and it now has 118K. The trucks is a beast. I only plow the driveway, go to the dump, and tow my car with it, hence it's low mileage. The truck tows my 20' trailer with my...

    No pictures, but I actually installed all of the bearings, oil seals, and dust caps on the rear swingarm and axel carrier. I need to install the bearings etc. into the dog bone and then I can put the rear swingarm on. Hopefully I will get to that this week. My a-arms and shocks are supposed...

    2001 Yamaha Banshee Restoration Thread

    Thanks everyone. This has been such a fun build so far. Hoping maybe tonight and tomorrow I can get some more work done on it. I messed around with it on Sunday evening and got a little accomplished. I installed the radiator mounting brackets, radiator, and mocked up the handlebars. I...

    Thankfully I have a pretty sweet update. I picked up all of my parts from the powder coater and I must say, I am blown away with how everything came out! I ended up decided to go with a "illusion red" frame instead of black and boy and I happy I did. It's amazing to watch the powder coating...

    Thanks man. Sadly at this point I am just waiting on parts before I can really move on. All the parts should be back from the powder coater on either Thursday or Friday, and a ton of parts are going to be delivered this week and next week. Pics to come soon! I am also going to start tearing...

    2001 Yamaha Banshee Restoration Thread

    I got the main principle from 04 Sleeper's "polish your exhaust thread" which on did on my old Terminator years ago. What I did was took a small electric block sander and wet sanded the pipes with various grit sand paper (i.e. 150, 300, 400, 600, 800, 1000, 2000, 2500). After, I used a cotton...

    Not the craziest update....but it's an update. I removed all the wheel studs at my buddy's shop with his press out of the front and rear hubs. I got the axle out of the carrier, and dropped a boat load of parts off to the powder coater. He is so busy he said he needs 3-4 weeks to get the...

    Thanks everyone. I've really been enjoying working on this bad boy. Doesn't seem like a lot, but I made a good amount of progress. I have the frame totally stripped down and pretty much ready for powder coat. I degreased it and washed it and it actually cleaned up really nicely. I also...

    Greenland (2021) Comet Disaster Movie

    I watched this Saturday night. It definitely wasn't what I expected. I didn't think it was anything amazing but I don't regret watching it at the same time.

    Thanks. Banshee's are 350CC, 2 Cylinder, 2 Strokes. Yeah def man, stock as possible ftw. This quad definitely had a rough life lol. But the frame is in perfect shape.

    So, as most purchases in my life, this one was very spontaneous. My cousin called me at 9 o'clock at night, and saw two banshees for sale that were listed for 20 minutes and asked if I wanted to buy one of the two. One is a 2001 with a seized motor, and the other a 2005 that needed TLC but...

    Some very special cars...

    That was probably the most beautifully spec'd F1 I've ever seen. What an absolutely stunning automobile. Also, I never knew that compartment behind the door existed for luggage. Very cool.

    Here’s Why The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Does Not Use LT5 V8 Engine

    Two years ago I'm pretty sure that was the plan. This makes no sense but Cadillac scrapped the Blackwing TT V8 (even though it was already developed) because they wanted to focus R&D money on progressing to electric cars. That's why the CT6-V was made in such limited production numbers. I...

    2022 Defender V8 5.0

    I think that is a badass truck. 2-Door, V8, and sounds pretty sick. I'd only buy one if I had nothing but insane amounts of money to blow on cars though lol

    World record ATSV at it again

    Badass man, that car is extremely impressive. I think the red is one of the best looking colors too. My buddy bought an RS3 about a year ago and the car really impressed me. With bolt ons and e85 the car is door to door with my hellcat. You can't deny how impressive technology has gotten...

    $1M McLaren Senna at Drag Strip .... video

    Seriously. People are unimpressed that a car that was built for a racing around corners doesn't perform well at a drag strip... This is SVTP is expected lol.

    Trackhawk Incognito Pulley Times...

    I have a 10% lower with a pinned crank on my Hellcat, but this was way before the Incognito pulley ever came out. My buddy has a Incognito pulley and a Legmaker Intake on his Hellcat Challenger. He did it at the beginning of this year but never had an issue. I personally wouldn't do it but OP...
