    Managed to get the pipes both finished tonight. Minus the mounts.

    Swift work. Obviously try to replicate pipe mounts that won't crack, like RS125 or dirtbikes. KTM rubber mid mounts are fairly cheap.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    I’m going to copy my tyga pipes by double skinning it and then welding on the bracket along the bottom edges inline with the pipe so it doesn’t crack (hopefully).

    Progress, I have run out of time to fit the stingers this week, I will check the if fairing clears in the mean time. Otherwise I will just have to hack it up a little.

    Only the belly pan needs some cutting on the left hand side to clear the belly of the exhaust

    Hi . Very nice work ! Here's something you may find interesting'. A friend of mine is into racing quads and has a very hot banshee that I'm pretty sure there's bugger all banshee left in it and he told me the only oil he could use to prevent seizing was Castrol R. I thought it rather fascinating that one of the oldest racing oils could beat the newest. regards Ian

    Well according to the burb it is more oilier. I suspect the smell might be a reason as well for using it.

    R has very good lubricity properties to this day. It just has some down sides that make it a pain in the arse. Serious downsides as compared to modern synthetics. Like it's unwillingness to mix or stay mixed. Piston varnishing etc.

    for use in a 4 stroke, it's "shear strength" years ago when I last heard was better than 300V Motul (itself an outstanding oil)

    I Have used 8002T Motul religiously since it came out and 4002T before that in all my 2 stroke premix road race applications. 33 years I've been buying it. It has proven to be very good at 30:1 in watercooled and 25:1 in aircooled. I think there are some better oils, but 800 is VERY good. Good enough for my needs .


    Plenty good enough for me and 74-78bhp from my 350 Yamaha (TZ) for the last 20 odd years and 130 from it's big brother (real dyno HP, not guesses).

    Before that, my brother and I used Castrol R or Shell M at 16:1 or even richer.

    As I understand it, where the very best modern oils come into their own on a 2 stroke is very high combustion temperatures. The very best actually get more slippery.....ELF 976 is one of those. They only really come into play if you run into a "problem" which pushes temps through the roof. But you also pay for it. 99% of people are fine with 800! Motul.

    You can also get modern synthetic Castor based racing oils from Penrite, from Supercheap!

    Don't forget, ask 12 people for their opinion on the best oil and you'll get 15 answers....

    You only have to go on organised trail rides to form a pathological dislike of quad riders. Car drivers of the dirt. People build up Banshees from aftermarket kit parts with little respect of their interaction. The 'Best' pipes are bought, then the buy a monster big block. The stinger size(s) are then too small for a near 500 (175 vs 250). Then they go great until they melt a piston. What is the real cause? Must be the oil. Sigh.

    Same thing with big bore RGVs, NSRs etc have to watch stinger sizes. Presumably OP has this calculation for his engine.
