They haven't done any substantial updates for a while, I doubt they will. I think they're offering two strokes for amatuer class still and people like us who love them and use them for our own personal fun.

I've been told that the AMA no longer allows the two stroke to be on par or even sub-par with the pro class. So for 250cc pro not even a 125 is allowed.

It was interesting though, that doesn't seem right because I was watching the pro 250cc class on ESPN the other day in which there were a few riders with two strokes. They didn't say what bike, but you could hear them and see the exhaust to identify them...

WHAT UP WITH THAT?

since 01 the yz125 and 250 engine wise a basically the same right? just new frames

No, the 125 had a complete new engine in 05 with among other things a 6speed box.

They'll make more updates when we start buying more of them.

I can't think of anything they would do that would cause a huge surge in 2 stroke sales that won't take away from the sale of their 4 strokes.

BNG... that's all we'll get!

They are selling all of the few they produce, and the tooling has been paid for, so they see no need to 'upgrade' as of right now. When two-strokes make their 'comeback', if they ever do, then and only then, will Yamaha 'upgrade' the two-stroke models.

I think if Yamaha still produces 2 stroke in 2011 that they will update them w/ some parts from the 4 strokes like re valved suspension, new swing arm... but nothing major. They better because I don't want to see 3 yrs in a role of just BNG!!!

The onlly way 2 strokes will come back is if dealers stock them to give people a option to even buy one. Every dealer i go to only has one 2 stroke sitting there thats all. They dont get new ones in. This is just my opinion. If someone is new to riding and goes to by a bike its probably gonna be a four stroke casse they may not even know a two stroke exists.

how can the bike make a come back if its not even being offered

I totally agree with you on this. If the smokers aren't sitting on the showroom floors and the sales people aren't touting their obvious advantages for certain types of riding, there is simply no way possible for them to make a comeback. In a healthy worldwide economy they would still sell quite well if they were readily available. The reason that I say this is because modern era four-stroke MX bikes have been in circulation long enough now for several types of riders to realize that they are just not the right machine for their personal needs. There are lots and lots of weekend warriors out there that would really like to be able to shop around for a new two-stroke MX bike to modify for woods riding if all of the 'Japanese Big Four' dealerships kept them in their inventories; providing of course that they were still actually being manufactured and imported into countries such as the U.S.A.
