TPI 2 stroke v 4 stroke

That is another popcorn question,lol

Everyone has there own options.

Iím thoughts is that KTM have been running PDS for years for a reason, people say linkage handles big hits better, I say look at TOBY Price he rides PDS and hits thinks pretty hard with no problems.
Iv ridden a 17 300 Husqvarna and a 17 300 KTM back to back and you can feel the heaviness in the rear end from the linkage.

Me personally il be buying bikes with pds till they stop bringing them out.

Yeah thats my thoughts too, PDS works well having it on my 500 so i know what its like, seems like the extra weight and moving parts outweighs the advantage of more travel over the pds

There's also less to snag on logs and rocks with no PDS.

Toby's had some of the biggest hits to his health on bikes.

Not a good example.

Rode a 2017 TX300 the other day with linkage, felt like it popped off the wooboys better than my Kato does, all round was lots of fun to ride.

Im going to wait till the TE300 TPI comes down in price and then try it out, for now just going to ride the hell out of my 350
