    I would appreciate your thoughts & ideas as to whether a 2 cycle or 4 cycle engine is better for a 90cc ATV. Am especially interested in the durability and the suitabiliy to move a heavier backside. Thank you. Tom.

    Long story as to why at 67 & 163#s I want a 90cc. Simply,that is what suits my needs & condition the best($$$ are not a problem.) If I could use a larger size,would do a 250 Kaw or Can-Am. Tom

    minimum get a 400cc or 500cc 4 wheel drive 4cycle machine it will serve you well and is safer than some of the bigger one's that can really crank up speed,leave those for the younger guy's and don't forget a helmet

    Suggest you check the specs of any 90cc before you buy one. All I've seen limit the payload to 150 pounds- not enough for me.

    Four cycle, no doubt. I recently bought a Honda with automatic and the choice of two or four wheel drive [switch]. Everything is great except it is VERY cold blooded; tough to start and it eats batteries.
    Recently attached a trickle attachment for extended battery life. Good luck.

    4 stroke, power band too narrow on 2 strokes.

    I'm with the other guys. 4 stroke, and bigger! My 8 year old has a 110cc 4 stroke and it really lugs under my 220# backside, just running it into the garage. Wear and tear on it will not allow it to hold up if you have the big backside syndrome!!

    Defiantly a 4 stroke a 2 stroke will foul the out the plug at slow speed and they are not made to lug. Also I'm not sure who bought the rights to Honda's 90 and 110cc but like on the old 3 wheeler in the 90cc it had a hi and lo lever on the gear case for extra puling now whether anybody still makes that I'm not sure, anyway that's my penny's worth.

    thanks
