I Hate The Way Two Strokes Are Compared To Four Strokes
by CR 80 Rider
Is it just me, or is it that every time people compare the 2 strokes and the 4 strokes that they always compare it to the wrong bike. Take the CR500 for example, it's always compared to the CRF 450. Well should it be? No, DEAD WRONG! You see, they say the 450 riders are always tested on the same track with the 500. Well it's obvious the four strokes are going to dominate. Now put someone like my Uncle for example who's been riding the 500 pretty much all his life (he's got two 500's - ones a "dirt bike" and ones a "sand bike"), if you put him on the same track and he rode both, he would dominate on the 500. But believe me, I Loovve 2-STROKES.
Anyway, I just looked up the horsepower a 250 makes, it's about 43-47HP. Now the 450... ready? 48-55HP including all that weight you have to haul around. I ride a Honda CR 80 big wheel, and believe me, that thing hauls! Now I know what your thinking, "A kid doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to this stuff." But I do my research to keep the 2 strokes alive.
Now the 500 puts out 63-68hp... yeah right a 450 could keep up with a 500, K, bring it on. Listen to this, a CRF 250 puts out 20.1 foot-pounds of torque. The CR 250 sets out 30.6 foot pounds of torque. The 450 sets out 36 foot-pounds of torque. Now the CR500 creates 50 foot pounds of torque
! Know this info. when someone tells you that 4 strokes make more horse power.
But I don't want 250 and 125 riders to hop on a 500 when they're not ready. And trust me on this, they are starting to make championships in Britain only for 2 strokes, so don't worry guys and girls the two strokes should be around for a while (I hope).
Me and my Uncle will do everything to bring back the two strokes, but we cant do it alone. So tell all your friends to STOP WATCHING AMA motocross if you can... PLEEAASE! And hope that millions will try and bring back the two strokes, cause if we have the majority, then companies will want to make more two strokes to make money.
But have fun and remember to KILL THE FOUR STROKE RIDERS OUT ON THE TRACK. Happy riding BRAAAAP BRAAAAP!
