I felt like my 450 4s had a broader power band when compared to my 250 2s.  I like two strokes better because they are easier for me to work on and most of all I like how light they feel.

I think the four stroke actually has a broader powerband, to the point you can't really notice it.

I like both, depending on what I'm doing. I love to take my 2t out on the trails rippin' it up.

On the other hand, I also like to take the 450 out since it's relaxing when compared to the 2t.

In the sand, I love the 450 since it goes everywhere and turns on a dime, occasionally without me on it.

IV been on a handful of 450s not much tho and I'm a fan I like the tourqe and it's very relaxing and easy going compared to the 250 witch seems to scream

To me the 450 seems to just have endless power all the way thro the throttle but iv raced a couple with my 250 and they can't seem to hang in the 1/8

Hard to beat a 2 stroke with Rainbow Powerbands.

 

Though I really like my YZ250, I can't fit the rainbows unless I take it to a shop.

I think you must of misspoke or mistyped in your first post because that right there is the definition of a broad power band.  "seems to have endless power all the way through".

 

As far as drag racing goes a lot has to do with the rider but I will say the only time I have lost on my YZ250 in the dirt drag was against a KX450f.

Okay okay maybe Mis spoke with "broad powerband" what I menat was more vivid I guess you could say. 2 ts seem to have more explosive power

I love how under this thread on the mobile version there's an FMF ad that says I Love 2 Strokes.

Ahhhh... America.

I like 2 stroke, I just love it when the powerband kicks in and just tries to rip you off of it and I just love the power In a 2 stroke I will not go to a 4 stroke unless I can't get parts or can not afford a 2 stroke, but I just love the little things and always had fun on them, the power never gets old.

If it's got wheels and an engine it's cool in my book.

 

I do currently ride a KX250 though, and I'm seriously considering getting a KTM 150SX just because they're so damn light and tossable.

Yes, you will love it. I came off an RMZ450 and it feels like a bicycle it's so light. Way lighter and makes me feel a lot more comfortable. Plus the seat is way softer than any Jap bike I've ridden.

Come to the dark side...

I think we can all agree that a 3 stroke fitted with a neon yellow powerband and glitter intake valves can't be beat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Myself, I like the snappy feel of a 2 stroke. Not that I mind the more linear 4 stroke power band, but the weight is a downside for me.
