Re: 2 vs. 4 Stroke...
"I prefer the 2 strokes for all of the above reason, but especially the power thing. For what they weigh, they put out plenty of power. Parts availability and the fact that many parts are interchangeable from one manufacturer to the other. Face it, the Chinese factories are probably all working from the same set of blueprints anyway. And then there's the looks, I don't like the way lawn mowers look, so I don't want my bike engine to look like one.
All of that being said, if I happen to come into extra money (LOL!) I would like to try a 4 stroke just to compare. Also, if they ever make one that doesn't look stupid, I would definitely try it then"
BLUEPRINTS, WHAT BLUEPRINTS. They asked a 5 year old to draw a bike with an engine with a crayon on the back of a door, then tok pictures and built accordingly
