Even my wr250r with a catalytic converter emits the same kind of pollutants as a two stroke, just in a much smaller amount and different ratios.
I think it would be really nice if they made some direct injected two strokes. That would cut the pollution and keep the light weight feel I love. I'm holding out for DI on my next bike.
Look up to OSSA, they make two stroke bikes with direct injection:
- a trials bike, an enduro and a trail bike.
but these bikes cost some $$$

Anyway you can switch to any other trials bike too, these normally use 1,5% to 1% of oil in the gasoline
