I think that a BIG part of the problem is the  recent power plants that have been offered to us(mostly  by the Euro’s), have not been suitable for the Club racer here in the U.S. I think the folks in Australia have been having the same issue and are now in the process of attempting  to get a motor that will suit the needs of the masses.  Tags are too costly to maintain and operate, and are too complex for the average weekend warrior.  And to some extent, they may be overpowered for many tracks and age groups. Yamaha’s and KPV’s are too unreliable , as they are a pita  to start and tune.   The 4 cycle’s like the LO206 have gained a lot of traction, but for many of us, there is just nothing like a 2 stroke for racing.  Maybe this new Iame KA 100 cc Reed Jet will help the situation.
