We continue the discussion of four strokes vs two strokes for off road, enduro style riding. This is part 3 of the series on this topic. Please go back and see our other videos for more information. More videos on this subject will follow soon.
The more that I’ve ridden and tested dirt bikes over the years, the more that one thing has been driven home for me. There is no wrong answer to this debate. Sure, the 2 strokes are more fun for me to ride most of the time. Having said that, the 4 strokes certainly have their advantages in certain situations like on a track (I don’t ride tracks, so it really doesn’t matter to me).
Most of the time in the past couple of years, I’ve had a 2 stroke and a 4 stroke sitting in my garage. The only time I really get tempted to ride my 4 strokes is when I’m heading out to the desert where the speeds are going to be higher and the whoops are going to be deep. If I know I’m heading to tight, technical singletrack… I’m going to take the 2 stroke for sure.
I’m a 2 stroke convert because I have ridden 4 strokes since I was a kid. Back in the day, as a child, the 2 strokes scared me since the power was pretty much all or nothing. The big bore 2 strokes are not like this at all. They have tons of low end and mid range power. They are great.
