Good to see the car manufacturer getting into it.

Definitely! This is what is going to drive all the other manufacturers forward. DI is getting very popular. The camaro for example. Their 3.6L DI v6 makes almost as much power as a mustang gt. 308 vs. 315 or something like that. DI is definitely the future.

the DI isuzu motor is pretty cool as well. 3.5l 250hp/ 250tq and they picked up 2-3 mpg over the regular 3.5 motor.

DI will be on everything in a few years....except the yz250:lame:

I just hope they still make the carb yz's so I can still find parts for my "simple" bike.

Parts will still be available when the bike manufacturers go DI. Just like parts are available for older bikes now.

The license for the orbital technology is very pricey.

To my understanding, the patent is so good it covers pretty much all modern direct injection (so he is making money on diesels too I think)

So that price may be holding it back for consumers because the license would drive a new bike cost sky high...

Anyways, I feel it's the future...let's hope someone makes it!

I dont think so.. Most (almost all) new Diesels are Common rail: Daimler , BMW , VW and even my Mitsubishi L200 is DI.

Common rail Diesel is OLLDD news. It suits a diesel perfectly hence it's common place now.

A DI 2t hmm now thats something...

I guess we should all get rid of starter motors on our cars and go back to crank starting them. That was simple. :bonk: I don't understand why people are so resistant to change. Or why people are so scared of electronics. Maybe its be cause they have no understanding of them. Personally I think carbs suck they don't self adjust well (change in temp, elevation etc.) and are antiquated technology. Personally I think EFI is much more simple than a carb.

I personally hate change and technology, can't find a damn thing anymore that does what it used too, yeah i got a cell phone for the purpose of a phone i could really care less about the other crap that comes on them, besides if ya wait 6 months it'll be new and improved:banghead: could really care less. Technology is great to an extent then it just makes everything way more expensive, hell i still use an ax on occassion to take a tree down or a hand saw for trimming. Look at how much a truck goes for now, when i look at a truck i could care less about haveing air conditioning and all the electronic b.s. that comes with them now, a major upgrade for me is getting a cd player. But yeah i guess the extra hassle of takeing 10 to 15 minutes to change your jetting a few times a year would be worth the extra couple grand:foul:

So you ride single track on horses, not bikes?

How are you even posting this, don't you have a slide rule or abacus instead of a computer?

I'm just giving you a hard time. You actually can still get plain-jane trucks, they are just a lot harder to find. My dad picked up a new F150 about 2 years ago in Gaylord that's as plain as you'll find em (power nothing, vinyl floor, AM/FM only, etc etc).

I do agree that change just for the sake of change isn't always a good thing, but change for an improvement is a good thing. And DI offers some pretty big advantages over carburetors for both consumers and the manufactures.

Dont patents protect you for like 17 years and then people can start copying it

When does the patent protection expire? This sounds like the Suzuki Full Floater issue years ago.

I realize you live in the midwest and it is probably disturbingly flat....

But in 15 mins I could be potential 1000 or more ft higher then I was previously.

Shoot in a day I could ride between 2k ft and 9k ft. Show me a carb that can compensate for that. I'll take the efficiency, greatly improved emissions and flexibility of DI. I'm not scared of some electronics :bonk:.

There are TONS of direct injection patents out there, Bombardier, Orbital, Nissan, and many companies we've never heard of (or at least I haven't). A quick search of some shows that most were issued in the late 90's and early 2000's.

Seems to me that the ridiculous $7500 diesel four stroke whatever dirt bikes turned into $9500 diesel four stroke whatever fuel injected dirt bikes.

I'll pass. I could rock a DI two stroke. But not if I have to mortgage the house for it.

I dont know where you got that info from but the price difference between a bike with a carb and EFI is really not that big. its like an extra $500-$1000 max. And once the "new" feeling wears out, prices will come back down.

      Ok so I'm looking for opinions from those who have been on yz125s and 150 exc/xcw's and maybe the ktm 200's exc/xcw's. You gotta be out there.
      Here's the deal...I'm 5'7" 165lbs. A couple years back I was looking for a small bike for my wife to learn on and for me to play around with and race. Could only afford one bike. I got a '09 ktm 105 sx. Once I got it sprung for my weight it was great. I have been top five consistently in my local harescrambles B class, believe it or not. Ya, you were not the only ones shocked. And did pretty good in the local mx races as well, junior class up here in Canada. Lack of power was sometimes an issue but I learned to deal with it and just scream, scream, scream!
      However my wife is a complete beginner and she is scared of it. I have since moved her to a 4 stroke.
      Just got a mint '01 yz15 mid summer. Like less than 200 hrs! I have absolutely loved it on the mx track. Suspension is perfect and I love the extra power. I had planned to set it up for woods/mx with a suspension revalve. However, did a harescramble race a month ago that was really technical. Granted I have not done anything to the suspension minus clickers, had too much psi in the tires (13 front and 15 rear) (yes I know that's wonkey, I only had time to get a heavy duty tube in the front and had a stock tube in back. Less psi in the back would have been instant pinch flat because its so rocky) and it was running rich. I had to scream the thing to keep it running and even changed a plug mid race. Well I'm sure you can guess but it was the worst experience I have ever had on a motorcycle. The more open sections I passed a lot of people but the tech sections required way more effort than I liked and the suspension beat the hell out of me!!! Like my knees, wrists, and shoulders were just done. (I was out there for three hours).
      So keep in mind that I just came off a 105sx with suspension mods (set up for woods/mx). I have no problem slipping clutch and shifting precisely, yatta yatta. (I don't think the 105 would have done well here either due to even less power, however...) I've been second guessing fixing this 125 up for woods ever since I rode a friends '09 ktm 250xcw. I rode it on a local mx track. The power was just so effortless and I was absolutely floored by how the suspension worked. I never thought that I could hit the woops that hard and clear every jump on the track on an xcw and feel THAT good! It felt a lot heavier though, and I think the price tag on these things are going to be a stretch.
      So here's my question. I want the lightness of a 125, but want to be able to race both woods and mx. How does a 150 exc/xcw ENGINE compare to an mx 125 engine? I love the 125 engine, but more low end would be usefull in tech areas. But if there is not a huge difference, I will probably just revalve the yz for woods and go tubless, etc. The 150exc's are so expensive and I hardly ever even see one for sale unless its brand new. I don't want the weight of a 200/250/300. I barely touch the ground on a 125....so it has to at least be light. Is it worth waiting for a 150 engine? Thanks guys.

      Hi guys I have a 2018 yz250 looking at changing springs front and rear I'm 200 pound ride b class moto.
      Having problems choosing spring weights using the calculators as mx tech say I need .45 fork springs and 5.2 rear but racetech say .48kg forks and 5.8kg rear.
      What are other bigger guys

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.
