  • great TPI's

    after 6 years of modding my carb 14/250 i have had my TPI 6 months now done the TSP head and ECU and its better than my carb was ever.

    not a single issue in 6 months/ 3,000ks, so much for all the TPI BS that gets posted
    runs so crisp and sound great with a real raspy crakle and pop sound, like a fine tuned FI race motor.
    still after all these years ktm can not build a fork that can handle over 40kph very well, first thing i notice is the crappy forks when riding others ktm/huskys, i have kyb inserts without doubt the best mod i have ever done.
    the new frame are mch better balanced really notice how much better it is keeping upright and near zero speed, they turn quite well but not that much better than the 14-16's, corner exit is much better tho.
    dont listen to anyone that reckon carbs are better its all BS, once you open up the dolly screw install the red spring you got 5 hp there, luvin efi

    Your obviously drinking the Orange Coolaid ggg, no way TPIs can be better than Carbys. Haha

    Thereís not many of them old school Carby lovers left that canít let go of the passed - slowly slowly there all seeing the light and converting.

      I need to talk to you GGG. Is yours a 250? Where have you got the power valve set in terms of turns from flush? How is it right off the bottom? I mean absolute first part of the throttle.

          It's great that you've got a great TPI ggg and that the mods have it outperforming your 5 years older carb bike, but there are still people out there whose dealers have as yet failed to get their TPI's running right... the last one I spoke to wanted to swap his '21 150 for my 200.

          There's no denying that TPI has come a fair way since 2018 though... especially with TSP's work.

            I bet he would, no TPI is going to make up for what would be to him a 33% increase in Engine capacity with no weight penalty.

              It's actually his wife's bike, so they're not chasing power, just want a bike that doesn't foul a plug every time they ride it.
              The dealer is about 2 hours drive away, so it's a pita for him to get it dealt with.

              The 200 would be too tall for her anyway, the 150 is lowered for her short arse.
              Hopefully the dealer can sort it out for them soon, it's been back there a few times already.

                Hey QLD, tell your mate not to touch the throttle when starting, push the starter and let her warm up without turning the throttle. Blimping the throttle and then turning the bike off fouls plugs on TPIs.

                I know Itís a natural habit you do owning a Carby for so many years.

                    Can you detail the work on the ECU?
                    Im not in direct contact with anyone with a TPI, but to date having posted many times this is a focus point Yet to have a reply from anyone that
                    they remapped their ECU from the earlier years of TPI.
                    GGG I take it yours is the latest model with the App acces installed?

                      On Gypsy501’s recommendation, I’ve gone to a 2022 150TPI and after just 20hrs on it…..I’m loving it.

                      After having been on 300’s the last 5 or 6 years, including 4 different TPI bikes, it took a bit of getting used to, but the little 150 runs faultlessly and will go up anything. There is no fear of whiskey throttling and the confidence is much higher to attempt almost any hard obstacle.
                      It will crawl up slippery rock faces in 1st, or will blast up hills with little to no run up in a 2nd gear start.

                      The weight, or lack of it, is noticeable on downhills, and I can carry a lot more speed as well as brake later and change direction or bunny hop across ruts so much easier.

                      I have a TSP head and ECU package coming for it, not because it doesn’t run perfectly, but at 85kgs in full gear, I’m on the heavy side for the little 150 and I’m just chasing a smidge more torque down low.

                      I’m also noticing that I’m not as tired at the end of a days HE riding compared to my 300.

                        Those are the same reasons I've spent most of this year riding the 200 while the 300 sat in the shed.
                        If I was in the market for a new bike, I'm almost certain I'd be getting a 150... even though I haven't ridden one yet.

                        Gypsy & Tom, yeah I'm pretty sure they've tried different plugs as advised by the dealer and the TPI start process is now well known... I don't think it was fouling at startup, but through the ride.
                        They've both only ridden 4T's prior to the 150 as far as know, so I don't think they're expecting it to behave like a carbed smoker.
                        I'm sure they'll get it sorted out soon enough... or she'll be trading it in on a 250/350F.

                          I was going to add she might be better suited to a 4 stroke (no problem getting their spark plugs up to cleaning temp) but I hate to recommend to anybody to get a heavier bike.

                            Fair call Tom.

                            I should have elaborated that while I am enjoying the 150, it is a busy bike to ride. It is so important to be in the right gear and be quick on the clutch with good clutch control.

                              Small bore 2t's the best of fun but just gotta be ready to get busy when it gets technical, I guess the Kato's have a clutch built with that in mind.
