Default Re: 2 stroke longevity

A dedicated recycling oiling system is the 4 Stroke's biggest advantage, versus the 2 Stroke's total-loss lubrication. And that goes hand in hand with longevity. Or it used to. With new piston materials, and todays's synthetic oils, and computerized oil targeting, parts are not as vulnerable as they once were, despite the elevated temps brought on by the short duration fuel-cooling properties of direct injection. I expect the G2 to have a very long life, but only time will tell.
