It seems they have the monopoly . 2 grand for a 2 year old engine that I could have bought a month ago at about £2250 is pretty extortionate . I guess these motors are in big demand , although I really can't see why unless like the only reason for wanting one is low wieght and simplicity , Its only owners or zap cats and the odd big sib will want one , a new 4 stroke would pay for itself in fuel saving alone in about 2-3 years and hold its value better .
oh no hope this doesn't start another 2stroke vs 4 stroke debate , because we are talking old tech carbed oilers here . so etek etc is included when I say 4 stroke .
