The most noticeable change after the switch to 4-stroke was the missing close fights. It might be because of the heavy bike that can not be maneuvered as easily as it's 2-stroke counterparts.
With 4-stroke, you have to flow with the bike and wrestle it as little as possible, while with the 2-stroke, you can flick it in anyway you want it, even in mid corner.
I think that particular characteristic is the one that force 4-stroke riders to plan their racing lines more carefully and way further back from the actual corner. And if something unplanned happens mid corner, all they can do is just brace themselves and pray.
