I have a riding buddy who cooked his Beta 300 due to an oil pump failure too! No fun for anyone!

Currently the 2stroke has an advantage over 4 in that its simple,easy and relatively cheap to maintain,these sorts of issues dont help and should have been sorted b4 release.Keep it simple,thats the advantage.Adding complexity and cost doesnt help the accessibility of the sport.And i keep hearing riders say they prefer the power delivery of the carb anyway,esp in the techy stuff.
Also,plenty of us enjoy working on our bikes ourselves,without the need for specialised equipment/tools.eg.Jakobi,who has been tinkering with his brand new 250 for months and has yet to start it

And that's the truth right there! In saying that with time diagnostic equipment does become more freely available.

With my car I can easily check fault codes, and if I wanted to invest a few dollars could start modifying my ecu doing some road testing and tuning as well. In saying that, it's taken a long time for that to become affordable to the home tuner.
