In 1996-97, they were not. You have no clue on history obviously.

They said that same thing about racing 4 strokes in mx, when Lance"?" Rode one in a race. If the rules allowed it, and it performed, I guarantee bikes would be made with it.

Because 4 strokes with valves, etc have made room. That's definitely not a argument killer. I'm not an engine maker, so I'm sure if a maker wanted to make it work, they'd find a way. It would be a shorter stroke on each side. To make the cc rule, it ... more »

Because they're lighter, more powerful and kill the 4 stroke. Everyone and their brother knows the 2 stroke will always out perform a 4 stroke of same cc's. Exactly why rules have remained unfair for so long. Even now, with all the "tech" 4 strokes have ... more »

OEM's have always followed the sales trend. If a 2 stroke somehow beat every 4 stroke, they would do 1 of 2 things. Try to kill it by rules, or jump on the train for $. Electric, will be the future. I have no doubt about it. But we have a long ways to ... more »

Yes, diesels are currently using the tech. Not new. Just not used in mx. Thus, the only way 2 strokes at current cc rules could compete. Because, as we've seen, even upping cc's for 2 strokes to 150 and 300 in Pro ranks can't even get approved. So abiding ... more »

I know, but had to start with a topic header that would get everyone's eye rolls first. Anyhooow. If AMA could alter the rules for this one change, manufactures of 2 strokes could remain within the same cc 1 cylinder rules. Allow 2 pistons. 1 cylinder ... more »

Makes me a little curious... Everyone here long term knows who I am. Curious who the other person is now.

That being said. It would be cool seeing a magazine test of Webbs 300sx vs his 450sxf in a sx track. Just to hear what benefits each would have over one another. If everyone thinks Chad can't qualify, why won't the powers that be, give him the option? ... more »

I'll probably tend to agree on that, yet mud, or something like a pileup could make me say, "don't say never." A 350 2 stroke could be better or worse on the start. Hard to say. That may not be rider, if it's easier on 1 bike or another. I know my 150 ... more »

You guys clearly haven't rode a fuel injected 300 bike, then add 50cc. So, you get smooth power for slick tracks, you get electric start, no bogging. Keep trying to make 4 strokes something that can't be done on anything else. 350 current 2 stroke would ... more »

I'd bet he wouldn't. He knows how nostalgic mx fans are. Going out with a new 350sx 2 stroke from KTM, would get more likes than Eli winning every race. Plus, if it was a better bike, and he won on it. Game over. Thus, won't happen via the black helicopters... ... more »

How about we let the riders decide. 350 2 stroke vs any size 4 stroke, 1 year rule... Hell, it's the end of the world anyways 😉

Added reply in a thread Chads not done 4/21/2020 4:05 PM

:-) Too big and heavy. Think 450, maybe 500cc is the biggest they could get away with in a 4 stroke.

That would make it CRtwotwo2.

If they would let him line up with something more fair, he'd qualify. Say a 300 modded sx... You know, give the magical 1 year homo 4 choke rule. By the way, still stand by the point. A 350 current 2 stroke would never be touched again by any size 4 ... more »
