Nope, any 2-stroke with the timing far enough advanced will run backwards. I had a buddy with a CR250 that would start backwards from kicking...you never knew which way it would go!
O.K. so the dt 360 would run backwards, i saw a mini enduro run backwards as well. this could be a feature exclusive to yamahas only!

a 2 stroke doesnt care wich way it runs.when the timing is way off and just at the right point.when you go to start it they will back fire and spin back wards.alot of times you dont notice the back fire.
ive also seen one doit when climbing a small hill.just as the bike was about to die from being in to high of gear,whammo instant reverse.
it usually only old 2 strokes that ever have this problem.

Well the last question was so easy no one cared or knew it. Ill try another. really easy. what was the first liquid cooled bike to come over from japan?
Dirt or Street? My first dirt bike was a 1981 Yamaha yz125 and had water cooled engine...the radiator was behind the number plate and had some pretty interesting plumbing actually part of the triple clamps! My guess for a street bike would be 1978 Honda CX500
I am sure I remember them trying water cooling in the mid 70's,I think it was 125,s yamaha sounds right,but Kawisaki is sticking in my head for some reason...
dam I'm getting old

Pretty sure they had a 250MX bike in the late 70's, 1977 or 1978 but it I thought they were made in Europe.
They were made in Italy by Aeromacchi....
