With anything, it’s preference. I know a lot of guys that run the gnarly and like it, but I think the PC II increased performance everywhere, and doesn’t cut the nuts off the top end like a gnarly. Lots of bottoms and mid range and will still rev out. 

 

it’s thicker than stock pipe but it may not be quite as thick as a gnarly.  

Thanks! I do notice that even with my cyl. raised by stacking a .5mm&.75mm base gasket(had head cut for it)topend is short with this pipe. Have to short shift and use the lower end which pulls ridiculously hard! If I rode in the desert or mx I would defiantly want a different pipe. Thanks again.

Someone knows what they are talking about...perhaps an insider hmm? Thanks for the detail! 

Just a interwebs search. Lol.

Platinum 2 Pipes

The Platinum 2 Pipe was made for people who ride or race off-road. Constructed from heavy-duty 18-gauge metal, it offers increased protection from rock or crash damage. Like the Platinum and Works Pipe, the Platinum 2 offers incredible performance with substantial power gains in the low and mid-range part of the powerband.

 

The Gnarly pipe is a 1/2-pound heavier than the Fatty, thanks to its thick 18-gauge steel construction (the Factory Fatty uses 20-gauge). The thicker steel is designed to take a beating from roost, logs, rocks and ruts.

 

They are both 18-gauge.

 

I use the Platinum 2 pipe and like it.

All my friends use the Gnarly pipe.

I think my bike revs further (we all ride the same bike) but that could be jetting plus my butt dyno is not very accurate.

I will try one in the future thanks!

My understanding is that KTM moved the baro sensor but the ecu is incapable of constant monitoring.
I could be wrong though.




Looks like the new map will fix the altitude compensation issue.
Fast forward to 8:30.

Sick. That’s definitely what my bike was doing. I got the map update this morning. Riding tomorrow but probably won’t see that much gain/loss.

I took it out yesterday to an area that gains over 2000’ in less than 3 miles. I noticed it was running real lean (and hot) the first climb up, after descending and immediately starting the climb again I stopped at the same spot as I did on the first climb and my bike was 20f cooler on the temp gauge. Same speed, air temp, etc. Lots of splooge too. Definitely seemed real rich.

Tough bike... took two good crashes in last two days. First was low side by a guest rider, 10 feet off trail. Nothing 

Yesterday I had a potentially dangerous accident. On a legendary series of switches, went low side over the bars 50 feet down a 60 degree wooded embankment. 

The bike flipped about 3 times, the first blow absorbed by my backpack which had empty Gatorade bottles and a 1 gallon rotopax. 

Once I realized I wasn’t injured, I looked at bike. Propped against a tree with a busted rear fender. At least 10 miles from a gravel road in a very remote forest I was nervous she wouldn’t start. But, she was remarkably unfazed. 

My ride partner found a way to get the bike out of a real mess and continued on.

That picture is able to give that slope and corner some justice.  I wish cameras caught angles better.

 

I just finished a decent overhaul on my '18 250 tpi with 67 hours.   I know its not a 2020 husky but its similar enough to merit posting here.

I put in a new piston and rings, cleaned a carbon filled power valve, added a Slavens S3 mule head, a FMF fatty pipe, V-force reed cage, and a Get ECU.

Its hard to say what makes the most difference when you add all these modifications at the same time BUT I  can descibe the power as crisp, clean and well fueled throughout a linear delivery of power, and an increase in power that is starkly noticeable.  Im not sure whether its the ECU or the head making most of the difference but oddly, I feel like I can feel both.  The ECU makes everything noticeably smoother and properly fueled throughout the rev range- never too lean or bogging whatsoever, and the S3 head and pipe seem to give ample power at all ranges of throttle delivery.  The thing runs like a raped ape.  Its hard to really notice what you are missing on a stock engine until you do changes like this.  It feels like a perfectly tuned machine right now.  VERY big improvement.  I need to inspect the plug and do a little tinkering as the top end breaks-in, maybe fiddle with my idle setting, but Im extremely pleased with the performance at this point.  With such a big cash investment, Im happy with the results.

Heads and pipes add a lot of power ,I rode a sx 250 with a full pc pipe ,it was very powerful compared to my STD one

I like that the power is more linear as well with these mods.  Very easy to get right where you want to be.

Any worries about the composite subframe breaking with stuff like this? Keep being indecisive about the te300i/xcw. Plan to ride the xcw to see if i like pds first though.

Since you added all that do you think youd have rather gotten the 300 at this point?

I didn’t get so lucky. Mine only went over once and cracked it, but not bad enough to replace yet. IMG_5692.JPG

The first tpi's were only offered in 250.  since i ride lots of elevation changes I figured Id give it a go.  That said, knowing myself, I probably would have added all that to a 300 as well, particularly the ECU.

Also, I brioke my aluminum KTM subframe the first day I rode it.  I guess I got overzealous.

I hit Tap Plastics for some carbon fiber mat and epoxy resin give that some reinforcement. Probably won't look pretty but form over function!

The little "trophy" like button says it means helpful but how many look at a trophy and think "helpful". No sir, you get a trophy for flipping your bike 3 times in one shot. @TheDStroyer sent his bike launching full upside-down aerial for 20-25 feet 6' off the ground, lands perfectly on the front suspension to absorb the landing before stopping in some bushes. The most incredible thing I have ever seen a bike with no rider do. Bent the sub-frame, that hill was thereafter named "frame bender".  It's a hill that crosses right as you go up and ends in a step up. Wheelie-send off arching right got the bike upside down flying down the hill.

Fair enough. I know we all like to tinker anyways

Dealer says there is a factory map upgrade for my 2020 300 that improves jetting. Will be taking it in for that...

I couldn't really tell much difference, personally.
