i'd have to agree with jus10.

it's more like.....riding a 600 vs. 750. except they are same displacement. hope that wasn't confusing.

You eat alot of paint chips as a kid? :laughing6


I'm kinda lazy when it comes to shifting, soo I prefer the 4 stroke, but I do agree with MCD, the 2 stroke can be more exciting to ride at times. It's just more work.

If you are going to do endurance, the 2 stroke is a more reliable platform. The rebuilds are cheaper and easier than a 4 stroke. 2 strokes will have to have new top ends more often, but rebuilds are simple.

If you want to do sprints, a 2 stroke will give you more power. I have yet to see a 4 stroke beat a 2 stroke in the TMGP's, except for the 150r. Those bikes are really fast! However, rider ability has a lot to do with it.

Either way, if you look at any competitive bike in the SBK class, they are all 60's and 65's. The 4 strokes will cost you a fortune to make them as fast as a stock 60 or 65. Our team consistantly eats up 150f's on our 60. The end!
