    speaking from expireance don't fill your front rim if your going to work it hard it will put alot of stress on your override spring and overwind it and when that happens it will chew the corners off the bosses and cause the spring to work it's way between them till it breaks the spring

    I was thinking about it, but I took off the passenger seat so what would I do with one if I got one? Plus any chick attracted to a ROKON is probably not something youd want to bring home to mom!

    Ill tell ya one thing this rokon gets right around pesky gates and even them annoying trenches dug by a backhoe to keep people off a trail. im gonna be flush with hunting spots this year.

    Yeah the stuff I was in with the rokon would have sucked to walk through. Lots of holes, logs, hills, spongy wet ground and brush. but the rokon just rolled on through! And no way would a 4 wheeler fit in the woods where I was. And yes from a small distance the rokon is not as loud as it seems to be when your on it. Im running skidoo synthetic oil in mine and the smoke is not bad at all.

    Yesterday I sheared off a roll pin for the rear drive sprocket. Hopefully that wont be too common of an occurance cause that is not a super fun repair to do in the field. But doable.

    I think tom at rokon has some 2 stroke oil called no smoke will keep the fumes down a bit but I always kinda liked the smell. Also you said it's loud well it might be right there on top of the bike but crawl off and get a few trees away and that little piston doesn't rumble much thru the woods. And with g3s wheelie you will find in dense alders stand it up on it's back wheel and walk it thru it works really slick. I have taken mine places that it was easier to run the rokon than to walk, and when I looked back it looked more like a moose wondering thru the woods than a 4 wheeler ever could.

    All the older ones are 2 stroke (146cc chrysler power bee). 4 strokes were an option starting in 94 I believe and became standard in 98. Now if you get a new one your choices are Honda or Kohler 4 strokes

    Trust me the dizzy part is all the shaking you get riding the thing, not the fumes! Mine actually doesnt smoke that bad. Im running synthetic oil though. Plus a fresh carb rebuild and new exhaust.

    I didn't know they were 2-strokers. It seems that the ones i have had pass me on trails were 4-strokers. Is the engine separate from the tranny? I wonder how an older Suzuki quad engine would fit in that space...

Up STEEP hills and Down them with ease. I was worried there wouldnt be any engine breaking on there but there is and it works good.

    Bad Points are its very loud (2 stroke), its very uncomfortable to ride. My butt hurts! Ill be redoing the seat. My back feels fine though. My arms got pretty tingley and I felt kind of dizzy sometimes.

    Im very impressed so far. This thing will go anywhere you can walk.

    wheelie it>?>????????????????????
