In a recent Dirtwheels magazine they made the comment \"In 2003, Yamaha geve the Blaster a new nosepiece and headlight. Since then they have upgrade the handlebars as well. Now all it needs is a DOHC, 250cc, four-stroke engine.\" This shows they have no support for 2-strokes what so ever. It is very sad that they would make a comment like this especially when the majority of there readers are probably 2-stroke riders. I feel in recent years there has been less and less support for 2-strokes. When was the last time you saw the banshee on the cover of Dirtwheels I think its time to take a stand and let them know that there are plenty of 2-stroke riders out there that are reading there magazine, and there are plenty of 2-stroke riders that are going to stop reading there magazine.

Russ Parr, United States7 years ago Comments: I think that some of you two-stroke folks need to take a deep breath and relax. Dirt wheels probably doesn't mean any disrepect to any two-stroke ATV riders. The reality is that due to government restrictions (you can thank your environmentalist buddies for that) that ATV manufacturers will no longer be offering new two stroke ATVs. 2006 was the last year Yamaha made the Banshee which was the last holdout for performance two-strock ATVs. The future of the sport is four-stroke power plants since they have cleaner emissions, and since oil is burned as part of the fuel in two-strokes, there is no way to make them as clean as a four stroke. There will be plenty of used two stroke machines as well as a plethora of aftermarket parts for years to come, but you won't be able to buy a new one.
