If they made 2 strokes like back in the early 70s I'd agree that they're better in an = cc motor. For some reason 2 strokes nowadays need to be rebuilt [topend] at less than 10k miles, ie. KTM. The oil injection systems on the older 70's bikes were bullett proof. Why can't they do that nowadays?

Pretty good read if you're bored.
i prefer 2 strokes for certain power equipment (i like em in single stage snowblowers, easy to service)
my dirt bike is 2 stroke, lots of power, mianly got it for the sweet 2 stroke sound!

4 strokes are nice on power equipment where you need constant starting and constant even power (ie my pressure washer and my bigger snowblowers)

my opinion, but 2 strokes rule for any recreational motoring!

I don't understand why you put constant starting with 4 strokes. You ever rode a yzf or crf. Whores to get started

Ive ridden a honda crf 230, they start right up.
I've ridden a crf 250x, starts right up

Ive ridden my 1989 kx125 pain in the ass to start the first time, then it starts right up.

If you maintain your equipment, they will start up!!
