This is the first web page it came up with. It is an article that is full of BS, but humorous.

yeah I know. I was just saying what I like to have for a motor in my sled, my bike, and my chainsaws. Still think that article was singling out 2 stroke sleds

And diesel trucks don't pollute the air?? Hmmm....
true yellow stone is a huge RV destination in the summer. those diesel engines pollute more than the 2 strokes because of how many there are in comparison to snowmobiles.

Well you can make statistics support and prove whatever you want it doesnt mean much to me, however this kind of stuff pisses me off. I just want to know where they get all this BS, is some guy sitting at home makin this stuff up. We just need a statistic to prove to the government just how much revenue snowmobiles make and we probably wont have to worry about them getting banned everywhere.

After you beat them with the trailling arm maybe just tie them onto your sled and drag them around while you continue to chase the bison.

Yes diesel do pollute but most people dont let there RV's run the entire time they are in there they just get to there camp spot and shut it off.

I'll never trade my 2-stroke for a 4-stroke, i road a 4-stroke yammi and it was the heaviest, most gutless thing I have ever ridden. I was scared to take if of trail, figured as soon as I hit powder it would sink like a rock in water.

Did some extra research on the subject, found that 2 stroke sleds were band because the Winter Wildlands Alliance conviced other groups to sign a petition.... Maybe if a petition was sent around to all of the snowmobilers to open it back up there might be even more signatures for us?

Oh I know, I hate 4 strokes too.

"Powered by lightweight, high-power engines, today’s snowmobiles boast up to 225 horsepower (4 times a Harley) and can exceed 120 mph."

That is my favorite quote out of the article. 120 on the dream meter for my sled. 225hp has to be less then 1% of the snowmobiles out there. What Harley are they talking about? Why are they comparing Harley four strokes to two stokes? They are using sources from the early 90's to the 2000's lol.

Look at the footnotes - every source is an environmental one. So much for objective reporting. It's like the people who go around saying how cars are causing global warming, but I've YET to meet anyone who gave up their car. And what about the cars I've been behind on the road - high mileage cars that burn more oil than the Iraqis did in the Persian Gulf War.
No mention of these. What about chain saws and outboards? Or wood stoves/fireplaces and bonfires, or being irate at the California arsonists who every year burn thousands of acres?

It'd be interesting to know if the writer owns one of those mechanical push lawn mowers.

(Probably doesn't)

Weren't they banned due to noise concerns and fear of "running over plantlife"?
Don't recall "polution" being the primary reason for it.

and don't the "modern" 2 stroke synthetic oil's produce a more "smokeless" and somewhat "healthier" exhaust compared the those oils used in the past? and beside 2stroke smell on snowmobile suits smells great!!!

I didn't say anything about polution, i said petition. It said the anti-snowmobile groups signed a petition to get them banned. I'll see if i can find the article i was reading it from again and post the link here.
