2 stroke or 4 stroke easier to ride?

Recommended Posts

4t is easier to ride and learn on, 2t is more fun IMHOthats why I ride one. There are lots of people that beg to differ, but at least we're all riding

Could not argree more !!!! After spending many years on the 4 bangers I was working on a few smokers and after riding them I realised just how much fun I had been missing so went and bought myself a couple and I am loving them all over again, Dont get me wrong the TMs 4s are staying put as I still adore them but boy do they feel heavy when jumping from one to the other :lol:

Depends on the 2 stroke

Depends on the 4 stroke

Depends on the riding environment

Depends on the riders goals and abilities (get around the track in one piece or get around it faster than the next guy)

Depends.

what orange yz said....

rather than dividing it between 2 and 4stroke, it would make more sense to divide between light, torquey, low-geared bikes that are hard-to-stall, vs heavy, pipey, tall-geared-bikes that are easy-to-stall.

Many people find the easiest bike for very technical low-speed terrain is a light torquey offroad 2stroke. Many people find the easiest bike for mx (clearing big jumps with short approaches, etc...) to be a modern 4stroke mx bike.

ymmv, but remember, there are more differences within the 2stroke or 4stroke genre than there are between the two genres. Either can be built to be easy-to-ride or can be built to be max performance and less forgiving.
