4stroke or 2stroke

Recommended Posts

So obviously there are two sides to this but, what should I get 2 or 4 stroke?? 

When buying a used dirt bike, two stokes would be the cheaper of the two, but the two stoke requires more short term maintenance.
When buying a used four stroke they are more money up front and are  more money when it comes time to fix them, but then they don't have much short term work on them.

So my question is, whatever bike I'm going to get this will be my first bike, I weight about 150lbs and am 16 yeas old, if it makes a difference, and i don't have all the money in the world to throw around, so should i spend more money out front and get my use out of a four stroke or get a cheaper 2 stroke and spend more money in the fixing area?  My riding places will vary between trail and sometimes wide open and track so if you could let me know what type of bike, and what to expect for a beginner?? THANKS

What's your budget? My advice is to get the most cleanest, low hour bike you can get. Either 4t or 2t. You will learn and adapt at whatever you buy. Feel out the seller, and inspect every inch of the bike.

Here's a good read,
