You can look into having your head rechambered, or buying an aftermarket cool head with some higher compression domes.

OR... porting. Flat out the best bang for the buck. Will make it a whole new animal.

do you want a higher top speed or make it quicker to get to top speed ? 16t front sprocket is pretty big for a stock motor, it must feel a bit sluggish down low ?.

as said, a cool head (or rechambered stocker) for added compression and a timing plate to up the timing (must use 94oct fuel , but depends on how much added timing and compression)

ditch the boost bottle as they are a good for nothing and can cause your intake boots to crack..

how much do you want to spend ?

IT DOES!

It gives 15 HP to the guy who took it OFF and sold it to you. :jesterlaugh:

As for what you can buy to make your banshee faster.....well you could try buying MY banshee. :rotflmao:

Are you looking at more top speed? Or more HP in general?

Not to steal the thread, but, how much power would a cool head with smaller domes give. I'm all stock motor as far as internals goes. Nothing too high compression but something a step or two above stock?

You have got to give us a budget to work with here.

What you need to do is save up roughly $500. Then send your cylinders and head to a builder, I like Kevin at Herr Juggs Racing and tell him to:

1. Port your cylinders to your riding style
2. Rechamber your stock head
3. Sell you an aftermarket timing plate, or mod yours.

Alot of people will recommend a cool head, which is a decent choice but having your stock head cut is cheaper, it will make more power because it is custom cut to your portwork and your engine will not run much hotter, if any with the stock head.

Should bring your banshee from its present state of 40 or so hp to a nice 60-65.

If your budget is 100 bucks or so I'd recommend getting the head rechambered according to your future port work. This mod alone should be close to the same difference as adding pipes.
