I think your still able to buy provided it's for commercial use. It has to be registered as this from new and if sold on used at a later point it can only be for commercial use again. How that works in practice I don't know.

Suck, squeeze, bang, blow - which one would you leave out?!

TBH, never really knew how a 2 stroke works compared to a 4 stroke (just that's it better for a SIB I've learnt) - anyone explain the 2 St please?

[edit] NOS, you type faster than me....

Many dealers aren't that fussed if you're commercial or not, they just want your wonga. As long as you sign the bit of paper saying you're commercial which then gets filed in some manuf's archive storage unit somewhere never to be looked at again...

That's an interesting vid - makes you wonder how much more advanced 2 strokes could have become if manufacturers had really wanted to overcome the emissions issue and seriously develop/refine them further...

Correct me if i'm wrong.

Don't know about motorbikes but after getting sick of breaking 4 stroke Mercurys we put a pair of 1980's Evinrudes on a big monohull and it goes faster, gets on the plane quicker but uses more fuel and is noisier.

Selling two 4 strokes even with one broken and in pieces gave my mate a lot of fuel money.

We have seen it before though, same boat, same horsepower, the 2 stroke is quicker on the plane. I don't know if it is the extra weight on the transom or they are gutsier but I think there is more to the story than just the 'statistics'.
