Just my 2 cents worth.
Why are we argueing over pro rules.?
I dont think it matters.
If the amature rules allow 250 = 250 that is where the change will come.
If Johnny is getting beaten on his CRF250 by his mate on his YZ/SX 250 then maybe he will change to a YZ/SX and Honda looses another rider.Then we have 1 more smoker in the feild. Then another and so on.
It will take awhile same as it took awhile for 4 strokes to take over.
The guy that race's will buy what is best for them, not what Dungey is riding.
What needs to happen is for a manufactor to support amatures on smokers, which might not be in their best interest now but it must be soon.
Is it best to sell some low cost smokers which they dont make much money on parts, Or have warehouses full of high cost 4 srokes that they dont make ANY money on.Can't make money if you don't sell them.
PS If you want to help ,Help the manufactors that still put effort into smokers.
