ok so I just read the thread about the DI 2t. This isnt a 2t 4t debate allthough it probably will turn into one. :fft: It seems the the 2t wont be back unless its DI(?). So my question to you guys is............how long do you think it will be until the 2t is back on the scene. If it ever will be. And do you think it will take over like the 4t are doing now? or will we have both bikes around? I like 2t but after riding my buddies 4t it does seeem to maybe have advantages. whatever...anyways so what do you guys think?

i think they will quit making two strokes when a four stroke can keep up to a two stroke of the same size

Personally I would much rather have the snap and lightweight of the 2T in the woods.

Carbed 2 Strokes would still be everywhere if the rules were equitable. If the AMA passes rules that make it equitable you'd see a large return of 2 strokes the next day.

Well, if this 350cc 4-stroke rule goes through... I still don't think you'll see many 2-strokes. All of the R&D money has gone into 4-strokes. They are several years ahead of the 2-strokes at the moment, the 2-strokes will need some time to catch up.

If nothing changes in the rules they will become extinct and never return regardless of Direct Injection or any other advances.

theres something more along the lines I was looking for, but they are working on changing the rules to 350cc bikes so if that does happen...will they come back or stay extinct?
