Two vs. Four (Motorcycle Stroke Engines)

Always start with the basics. If you jump to the most complicated without having to know the basics, youíll end up returning to the very same ground. Thus, messing and missing a lot.

Same in the case of motorcycle, you have to know the different motorcycle parts, their function and distinction so as to understand their chemistry and importance. Let us take internal combustion engine as an example. The best way to start is to have a substantial comparison. You have to know the types of engines in order to decide whatís best for you. You have to consider its pros and cons...

We have two types of motorcycle stroke engines Ė the two stroke and the four stroke engines. The first one involves two processes - compression and combustion. On the other hand, the cycle in four stroke engines involves intake, compression, combustion and exhaust.

If we are to give their advantages here are some. In two stroke engines, the engine fires, spark plugs ignite once every revolution of the crankshaft. It involves simple process with fewer parts. Its power is two times better compared to four stroke engines. In connection with the four stroke engines, they have proficient use of gas. They also give off lesser smoke than two stroke engines. Above all, they last longer.

How about the disadvantages? With the two stroke engines, you have to mix its oil with gas. This can be costly. They can also give off greater pollutants. The use of gas is also mot proficient. Lastly, they last less. With the four stroke engines, their drawbacks include their complicated nature since there are more parts to attend to, they only fire once every two revolutions, and they have half as powerful as the two stroke engines.

After knowing the positive and the negative sides of these two types of engine, you can now determine which of the two you like the most. Itís just a matter of what you like and what works for you.
