Thanks for the welcome. A lot of the issues I had were mainly resolved by a lot of your post. Started out with bad Ecu , then failing fuel pump , and fuel pump regulator. Haven’t had it long but seems to pull hard. Just curious how they run compared to a slightly modified banshee, pipes ect. Right now just has a yoshi. Slip on, procom, and uni filter with lid off. Plan on adding fci, and 13 tooth front sprocket for woods. Cams will come later.

Welcome!

They run well in the woods.

You will want 14/38 or even 15/38

13/38 has a ton of wheel spin which slows you down

Especially once you get a fci

Thanks for the info. I'll pry just keep it at 14/38 then. Just not used to a tall first gear. Used to the old days of a 400 ex cruising around like a tractor in first lol.
