no a blaster spindle won't fit onless it's a 2003-2004 blaster.
also 87-90 banshees use differnt spindles. if you have an a arm banshee then you need 91 or newer spindles. check ebay but plan on spending at least 45-50. thats if you get lucky i've seen a pair go for 150 before

I noticed that mine had some frankenstiching done to it last month. Apparantly the arm (held in with the 2 allen-bolts) that connects to the tie rod must've been screwed up. I guess the guy couldn't get the bolts out so he decided to put some booger welds (really crappy lookin) on it. Well there was a crack in the weld so I ground it off and put a wrench on the allens. One came loose but the other snapped off. Needless to say I drilled it out and tapped that puppy. Now there's a grade 8 bolt in it! It probably would have looked stupid but I painted it black so you can hardly tell.

That spindle costs about $210 from Yamaha so try to find a used one or give her some persuading. Anybody seen my persuader (30 lbs. sledge)??????

here is a link to a set of spindles on e-bay, don't expect to pay anything less than $50 for them!!

I don't think you will find someone who makes it. There is no real advantage to having billet spindels. It's not like hubs where that is a rotational mass. I am sure you can have a machine show make a set for a price. :)

it would be a real steep price to pay to get some billet spindles, but i see no reason for them. you'll never see them and they won't improve performance but if you really want that done i'm sure someone would be glad to take your cash to make them...
