You got a lot of reading to do......
Yep, I've got a lot of research in front of me. Two issues for the 2 stroke that I'm aware of are vibration and convenience (adding oil to fuel). Any others that you may be thinking of?? By the way, since I'm using this as a paddock bike, speed is not a consideration as most pit speeds are 10-15 mph or less. Another thing that I was thinking... are there any kits that use a drive belt instead of a chain drive??? Thanks again,
