    Interesting, I would have thought the engine braking would have felt better coming from a 2T. Im on the hunt for a 250fx demo unit to borrow a bit.

    I know this cos I rode an FX for a good few weekends and when it comes to the terrain we ride the 4 banger doesn’t live up to the 2 stroke. All those issues @thebob had is exactly what I had.

    Beer, so much more than just a breakfast drink.

    Im thinking the biggest issue would be the way the 300 can literally just chug along in almost any gear regardless of how low the rpm and just keep moving forward. Im assuming the 4T will stall out much faster.

    The one big thing that is so addictive on a 2T is that sudden whack of power. Man that gets the senses alive
