  • Why the hell they took so much to make TPI!? Finally a 2 stroke which you don’t need to worry with engine braking and should maybe even last longer. Unfortunately for a 31 inch inseam its a tall bike

  • HOT Carburetion: Is the new STIC system better than fuel injection? Yes! Dick and Jane like fast two strokes; they are really impressed with the Keihin with STIC insert. Jane says to Spot; WOW, see Dick [John] run; Dick [John] is very fast. See the STIC insert work; Dick [John] is very fast on his STIC equipped Keihin carburetor. Jane and Spot are happy that John is wicked fast on his Husqvarna 300. Jane and Spot think John’s bike is on Steroids [STIC]. To see John go very fast click on this video below to see John accelerate; he is very happy and very fast on his STIC Rapid Transit System. Jane and Spot are happy that John is not on steroids; that it is a Keihin carburetor that is on STIC steroids. For details see the following video: Husqvarna 300 fiboth.info/like/videot/eWdtp5i-2rDGp38

  • Have you had a chance to test the 300 tpi? I hear it has more low end power.

    CycleCruzaCycleCruza2 vuotta sitten
    • No not yet CC but sure it would have more usable power and torque. I've just bought my own 500 exc six days to do an SM convertion on, I thought about getting the tpi but I want wheelie hooligan fun and the two strokes are much harder to control once the wheel is up as no engine braking. I know lots of oil changes but it's very easy to do and the bike only holds 1.2 liters so oil cost is low anyway.

      Lamb Chop RidesLamb Chop Rides2 vuotta sitten
  • Please review the 300TPI, I am very interested to see what you think of the extra 50cc. Great job, keep up the great work!

  • It's the end of march 2018 and still no 300 tpi review. I've bought one now but still very interested in your opinion on the 300 compared to the 250. Plus, find yourself some green lanes and have a go. It'll improve your road skills no end. Love your videos 👍

    • I'm liking it a lot. It's like riding a lightweight turbocharged 4 stroke enduro bike. It has the goodness of a four stroke, well mannered tractor like low down grunt but has a nice 2 stroke pipey braaap too. I'm pretty sure pure 2 stroke fans will disagree. It may not be aggressive or raw enough for the purebloods, but they will understand one day ;-) Get one borrowed, you'll love it.

      Nick BennettNick Bennett2 vuotta sitten
    • Yeah sorry Nick, KTM 300 tpi was booked so never had a chance to ride it 😣 probably going to be next winter at this rate before I do. How you finding it?

  • Sounds smooth holding it at steady speeds on the road, is that correct? Carb bikes are usually smooth at some speeds and rough at others.

    KJ GillKJ Gill3 vuotta sitten
  • Chops, how was the new TPI 2 stroke on normal tarmac roads? I really want to get a bike for green laning soon. But will need it to do some road work to get to the trails etc.. ideally I’d like something I could also put some supermoto rims on for some summer fun on road, bit like your 701.. So maybe a 400excf is better, but love the idea of a 2 stroke!

  • Would have one in a heartbeat if it weren't for the thieving scum in my area who feel they deserve these bikes more than the person who actually paid for it! Would be awesome if they could do a 500cc 2T EXC .... then add on a set of 17" rims and beef up the front brake and suspension! :P

  • hate to pull you up but the previous gen 2 stroke KTM's run 60:1 fuel/oil ratio although some old timers still like to run 50:1 for some extra lubrication :-) I have a 2014 KM 250 stroker :-)

    • LOL - NO YOU DO NOT !!

      S KS K3 vuotta sitten
    • You also need new oil pump every time you do piston change.

      TwisterTwister3 vuotta sitten
    • Yes i agree 2 strokes are easy to maintain if you have some mechanical knowledge & able to maintain yourself ,people estimating the oil mix caused a lot of problems on older bikes & not letting engine cool down .Looks like tech has come a long way. great for week end fun .

      Alan HazardAlan Hazard3 vuotta sitten
    • yep, piece of cake, 150 hours / 3000 miles will equate to about a years riding or even 2 for some. A lot of guys I know will do enduro & some green laning will only manage 50 hours or so of run time per year. 2-strokes are so easy to maintain

      S KS K3 vuotta sitten
  • Interested to see whether the leaner oil/fuel mixture will affect wear and stuff? The fizzy runs 20:1 lol, not sure about any of the others. The smoke makes the 2 stroke, and that smell!

      Zane ZinnZane Zinn3 vuotta sitten
    • +ENDURO SK apparently because the engine internals are so much lighter than four stroke the rotational mass is massively different hence why they feel so much lighter
