    I really dont think Yamaha will be bringing back a 2 stroke with the way emissions are in the States but who knows.

    They have to get ROI back on a new 2 stroke engine if developed,sharing it in a new superjet PWC would help get back that cost(700cc twin exist in that model now).Would they sell enough Superjets to offset the cost(and would the motor design work in two different applications?).Much easier to make a fourstroke based on the 873cc triple from the FZ-09.

    If they did sell a 2 stroke again it would probably be an arctic cat painted blue with some yamaha decals on it.

    The solution to the stroke problem is to jump ships. I would, if I could afford.
    See the whole waterskipping at http://www.elgen.net/veivisr/srx-shooting2.wmv

    Stating the obvious is not neccesary!
