I just purchased my first 2 stroke (2000 KDX 220R.. havent got it home yet!) and I wanted to get some information about 2 stroke "technique." I have been riding four strokes for a little while, but I have always heard that 2 strokes require a different approach. One example would be the lack of engine braking.. I dont mind using the brakes, but mechanically speaking are there times when other techniques should be used on a 2 stroke as opposed to just using more brakes instead of engine? What about lubrication issues? I am not asking about mechanical/maintenance stuff, but rather specific riding techniques. I figured it would be good to make use of this time while I wait for her to arrive Oh, I have ridden a 2 stroke 1 time.. I stalled it all over the place, and it never felt right. I have a feeling thats just because I didnt know what I was doing. I didnt last 2 laps!
