    Default YFZ450 A Arms on a Banshee

    What needs to be done to put these a arms on a banshee? Do the spindles need to reamed out or anything? Looks like they will bolt right up and I know I'm gonna need different shocks. Thanks.

    That is a great question I would like to know the same thing. I had my a-arm powdercoated and almost all the nylon bushing melted out of them so I need some new ones.

    I've heard they will work and it makes the front end wider, but I would like to know what is involved before I buy a set.

    Check out the A Arm Forum, there's coverage bout this in there. I think the lower a arm has to be cut or add a spacer.
    Don't remember but it's not a direct bolt on. It does make the front end wider but it also lowers the front end.
    Better than stock, yes! Better than aftermarket, no!

    Should just get aftermarket the money your gonna have to spend to make the conversion can compensate how much a set of aftermarket ones would cost

    well there is some cutting required, you'll need the yfz tierods, if you want to keep the geometry correct then you'll need the yfz spindles and hubs. Speaking from experience in the long run just get some aftermarket arms. That way you won't half to worry about trying to sell the yfz stuff later on down the road. Just my .02

    yfz450 arms on a banshee are crap. Just spend the extra money for a-arms and shocks made for the bike. Ima prob clean up my 450 arms and sell them for dirt cheap.

    done it myself. i personally do know people that have,
    and its been nuthing but head aches.
