    Default Newbie Rider



    Hi guys i am contemplating on getting a 2 stroke or a 4stroke for my first bike. Could anyone tell me the difference; riding wise, specs etc? (carbs vs FIs and so on) I am actually eyeing to get an RXZ. Sorry if i am a bit late to the party. Would appreciate any form of knowledge. Thank you in adv!

    From what I understand 2 strokes are alot more powerful than 4 strokes. RXZ 135 has 20 hp compared to like a CB150r with around 17hp, despite the RXZ having a smaller cc engine. I have zero experience with 2 strokes but from what I've heard 2 strokes are alot easier to maintain and repair, also you have to use a special kind of engine oil 2t.

    Carbs need to be tuned every once in a while, FIs are operated by a computer so no need to adjust. One less headache when servicing, but if your battery has a problem your throttle will have problem.

    That's all that I can recall off the top of my head, those with more experience please feel free to add on or correct me
