ALL two strokes (Except late model direct injection) are banned in some areas, like Lake Tahoe. Other areas like some marine reserves all PWC's personal water crafts are banned.
Lake Mead bans are growing.
Presently, the 2003 carbureted two-stroke motor ban that goes into effect on January 1, 2013, only applies to personal watercraft (Jet-Skis, SeaDoos, WaveRunners, etc).Two-Stroke Vessel Engine Regulations - Lake Mead National Recreation Area (U.S. National Park Service)
However, the park's 2002 Lake Management Plan states the park service's intent to ban all two-stroke engines that do not meet 2006 EPA emissions standards in the future.
Areas in California with restrictions for PWC's, which is a lot!
