    A 2 stroke is usually a lot cheaper to rebuild than a 4 stroke. First of all you should make up your mind as to weather you want a 2 stroke or 4 stroke, and what kind of riding you plan on doing. An RM125 and CRF250R are 2 very different bikes after all.

    Why are you only looking at the rebuild cost? You will rebuild it once a year. That cost spread over the year isn't much. If you look at the cost of extra oil and more gas in a 2 stroke that might end up costing more even if the rebuild is cheaper.

    Some of the modern 4 strokes need a top end rebuild at least as often as a 2 strokes. http://www.kiwibiker.co.nz/forums/sh...ngine-lifespan

    About 350 for the parts off the net if you can do the work yourself. Working on RFS ain't too bad, especially if you can find a manual.
    Smoke 'em if you have 'em

    You run what you brung, and pray you brought enough
