Re: What's going on with MB kits and the EPA?
Nether of my CG motors smoke. Only during break in. After that I run Red Line @ 50:1. There's normally no smell, and no smoke at all. All of the ones I've ever heard were noisy it's true, but all my other motorcycles are a lot nosier. My 85 hp Sportster will make your eardrums bleed if you're standing next to it when it's on a dyno.
It's a freedom issue. To like what you want, and not be told what to like.
If a motor is less than 100cc it makes more sense to be a 2 smoke, especially if it has to pull my massive arse around. All my other bikes are at least 74ci or larger. They're all 4 strokes.
The EPA is just like all the other government agency's. They aren't there to look out for your best interests, they're there to look out for their own best interests, and the interests of those in a position to manipulate them, and in turn you.
