Question 4-Stroke Smell??

Hey guys this probably sounds stupid but what does a 4 Stroke smell like compared to a 2 Stroke? If it is only burning fuel as opposed to fuel/oil mixture for 2 strokes, how is it different other than the smell of burnt oil?

Actually if the bike is running properly it really doesn't smell like much of anything! OF course that is assuming your running pump gas and not race gas.

So if it was jetted and running right and had premium it would smell like nothing?? I just thought they smelt nice as i have heard a few people say they like the smell of a 4 stroke. Whether they were being sarcastic is possible.

I guess the are not odorless...just in comparison to a 2-smoke they are!!!

They smell like a gasoline engine....and yes I can be more vague if you like!

Yer i suppose it is a silly question but iam just wondering. I am definetly going to get a 4stroke as my next bike. Either YZ250F or 450F. I love the sound of them and i reckon it would be alot easier to just put straight fuel into the fuel tank. Am i corect in thinking that 4strokes are better on fuel?

i got two 4 strokes and i love them. Not having to premix is great. That and the fact that most 4 strokes have a much bigger gas tank than a 2 stroke. I love the fact that i can ride around my house and when i need gas just stop at the nearest gas station, fill up, and then continue riding that and if i ever run out of gas, its a lot easier to obtain gasoline than gas/oil mixture. :O

One time at a hare scramble race...there was this guy on a either a WRF or YZF...everytime he would go past me this perfume smell followed him..it wasn't him smelling..I am sure it was his exhaust...guess maybe it was race gas.

I believe the best smelling 2-stroke oil is Motul 800. Smells like lollies before it goes in and comes out smelling real good (if you can call exhaust fumes good). Ne way i believe it is the best smelling oil.
