Re: 2 vs. 4 Stroke...
I don't have a good basis for comparison. My only 4 stroke is on a trike and my 2 strokers are on bicycles. I can't compare speed and power but I will say this about the 2 strokes.
I don't have to adjust valves.
I don't have to change oil.
The clutches never slip
It takes me all of about 3 minutes to mix up a batch of fuel.
Easy starting, nice idle and they sound like the Harley Hummer I had as a kid.
And...They look way cooler as an in-frame.
Just my opinions.
