Default Re: 2 or 4-stroke

Well these bikes are typical I'll post one I've yet to reassemble. These are neat engines but unless you have friends with knowing on them I'd suggest electric front hub kit if you don't want to waste your time tightening nut's bolts or replacing parts .

I like the cg engines. They slip into the frame, are narrow, light weight, easy to fix and cheap.
To me the 4 strokes look like a lump, cost more, are heavier (counting their mounting plates), need wider cranks (don't they?) and use centrifugal clutches which I grew to hate as a kid on mini bikes.
The 4 strokes also require a little more knowledge to work on, with their valve clearance adjustments and whatnot.
The 2 strokes need mixed fuel and some people have problems with vibration loosening mounts and stuff. Mine hasn't had any problems so far.
Runs great and gets better every ride. I did put a different ignition and carb, but that was a choice, not something it needed.

I could not have said it better.
So I won't try.
