You won't know what size piston you will need until you take it apart and inspect the damage, if any. Do that first, then worry about which brand.

Yes get a micrometer and measure the cylidner bore. How did you blow it ? 300 main sounds rich it shouldnt have blown , most people run 280s with a pipe And filter and are fine

Weisco is a good piston for the shee thats what I have but you should be happy with about any aftermarket pistons. They are a little more forgiving than stock

The Wiseco pistons are forged, and are tuffer. But you have to let the motor warm up befor you slam on the gas. The stock pistons are cast and are not as tuff, but don't need to be warmed up befor running hard.
Take the motor apart and get it miced befor you buy the kit. Are you doing the work yourself?

All pistons need a little warming to give them time to expand, when cold they make a harmonic slap and stock pistons shatter. I havent seen a weisco skirt explode but thats just me.

a 2004 banshee shouldnt blow up just like that, something must be up, but i would definatly go with vitos pistons, dont waste any bores with it, you wont see any power gains untill u got .80 and even then it is small gains

um, a banshee shouldn't even run 20:1 or if it did, it would be bogging down and barely run :tdown:

I run my Banshee with Amsoil at 24:1. That's what my Yamaha dealer recomends me to use...

Do you buy your oil from them as well? :roll:
I run the Dominator oil 50:1 no problems what so ever. Amsoil guarantees your engine will not fail due to inadaquet lubrication if you use it at the ratio they recommended.

If there's cylinder damage, you will have to bore it, although you will want to go out as little as is necessary. Keep in mind that Vito's pistons are just Wisecos with the windows in the skirts hogged out to allow more fuel/air charge into the crankcase. This does result in more power, but weakens the piston skirts. Somebody who puts as many miles/hours on their rig as you do may want to consider just getting Wiseco Prolites.
