2-stokes don't foul the plugs (if you mix your gas right), they last just as long (if you take proper care of them), they are just as quiet (they both have the exact same mufflers!!), there's zero smoke if you use synthetic oil mixed @ 100:1, they cost less, look better & fit in to more frames, they have far less parts to break, they are much faster!! (there's never been a 4-smoker that could keep up with us on our rides!!), more high performance parts for them & they get 90MPG even after totally hot rodding them!!!
4-strokes are heavier, co$t three times more, they are slower & have way less hill climbing power, they have ten times more parts that can break, require super wide pedal cranks to clear the engine, they have centrifugal clutches (that blow), they're ugly, (they look like you put a lawn mower engine on your bike), they only have pull starts (which break), & no one makes high performance parts for them!
I'm just really wondering here how you can actually think that 2-stokes rule??? Other than a 2-stroke winning the Deathrace this year, I can think of none. The AMA Supercross and the AMA motocross series....tell me how they ruled there? Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, KTM and Husqvarna, what type of engines are they building and RACING and winning with now? 4-strokes dominated, no dispute!
It's all coming down to 4-strokes and a lot of it is because of the State you live in and our CARB compliency here and the only thing I can think of that makes you think 2-strokes rule is that you're sittin on a couple of containers of em.
Don't get me wrong, I love two-strokes and always have, you just have too make way and let it go as the four-strokes are surpassing and pushing two-strokes out of the future. Just wait...
The AMA Supercross being 99.9% 4-strokes should be an indication of what type of engine really rules!

Nothing is out of my realm,
if it doesn't fit, make it fit! Beer is the answer....what was the question?
A sense of humor
costs nothing, why don't people use them more often?
