great - if you & a lot of other fans dont care then lets do the right thing for the sport and allow 2 strokes and 4 strokes to race on a level playing field cc for cc instead of having the outdated 4 stroke handicap system. All the arguments about ... more »

no unfortunately Kawasaki and honda dropped the 2 strokes in 2008 / 2009 here in the UK was massive shame, but suzuki still sticking with them and on their UK website it says they are still committed to 2 stroke technology! http://www.suzuki-gb.co.uk/bike/rm250k9/ ... more »

I 100% agree - I sold my SX 250 2 stroke last month for more than it was advertised for after I had lots of people bidding for it on ebay - people are realising that 4 strokes are ticking time bombs and they are moving back to 2 strokes in droves! finally ... more »

I've got a road legal KX 250 2 stroke here in London and just waiting for the rain to stop and can take it out past all the tourist spots, not many tracks here so more fun to ride on the roads!

There is already fully equal displacement in amateur racing in the states now, the next logical and fair step is to allow it in the pro classes also. Seriously how can it be right to only have it in the amateur but not pro class? It make the rules look ... more »

Well we have thought about it a lot Justputtinitaround and yes it's definately down to the manufacturers... they have a lot of power on the AMA and they exert a lot of pressure to keep things as they are with the 4 stroke receiving this big handicap. ... more »

maybe that would be a good option for some people if they made them - for those who want the best of both worlds... at the end of the day it will be deciced on the track - if we had 250cc 2, 3 and 4 strokes (or maybe 1 or 5!) racing together for example ... more »

What your saying is because of their fundamental design, the 2 stroke produces more power than the 4 stroke cc for cc. To me that clearly shows that its the 4 stroke design that is lacking, not the 2 stroke. That is why 4 strokes can only be competitive ... more »

I am a member of www.twostrokemotocross.com and I love 2 strokes, we think its unfair that 4 strokes are allowed an engine size 'handicap' that pretty much amounts to a cheater rule in order to be able to compete against 2 strokes. The bottom line is that the powers that ... more »
