    You should watch this video of tpi...

    Drag racers still use carburetors. Not EFI. I am not convinced that a fuel objected anything will produce more power than a carburetor. I keep an open mind. If KTM would include a programmer to adjust the MAP, I might consider one. Perhaps the next gen will take care of it.
  2. I’m getting great feel in the choppy with my Aer fork. Couldn’t be more happy with it imo.

    Man that sucks. If it were stolen from your garage, home owners would take care of it. ;-)

    2018 xcw 300 jetting

    My 300XC runs amazing using a JD needle. I run it consistently from sea level to 4K feet. My tune doesn’t seem to be effected by temperature as much as I thought it would be, or altitude. The factory needles provided with my bike have a super narrow tune. It is so sensitive to temps and altitude imo. On the other hand, the JD needle has a 4K feet operating range, which matches up to what I am seeing. I haven’t touched my jetting in over 4 months. I’ve had the bike for about 6 months. 61 hours and going stronger than ever it seems. Good luck. :-)

    wp shock

    It takes a couple hours to service the fork or shock. Not much doe involved.

    That makes huge sense to me. !!!! Here is the part number for those that might need it future reference. Needle valve set Yamaha part # 4PE-14107-38-00 19 bucks.

    Bummer. I guess until it’s sorted, I’ll be checking mine from time to time. I have the source for the parts I believe already.

    No you can’t. That is another thing that sucks about the bike imo. ;-)

    An o ring and gasket or something. Not a huge deal when one knows about it right? Simple and straight forward to fix imo. And also part of what should be a regular schedule maintenance routine.

    It’s nice to see the technology come along. One day it will be as good a power delivery as the four strokes are today. It takes time and development. Often times manufacturers implement a product knowing its flaws. As stated here on this thread pages back. The starter was one example. I feel safe with the carb for me. It also has the power delivery I want in a bike. The smile factor is a big factor for me. And a smile has been on my face since I got my 300XC. :-)

    A bit off topic imo. Sounds like a good bye. Well go back to your big honken 4T and blaze on then.

    The ultimate socket kit

    Sweet deal !!! They are nice kits. The handles are smooth and polished. The ratchet has crisp clicks,and I am surprised how much I like the rubber handles.
  13. Nice bike!!! Looking good after 100 hours. I feel the same way. There is no better bike out there imo, Especially for the trails.
  14. It’s important not to mess with the PV on the tpi bikes. It can cause a lean condition. I don’t know if that is what was causing the problem, but if you adjusted it outward for more torque, then that might explain some things. Sorry no one has come on your thread. There has been several topics on the subject. Just read the forum lately, and you will learn more about your bike and its potential problems. Sorry this happen. Check back and tell us all about your experience after they fixed it. My guess is that you will miss a little low end torque and less of a power band in the mid range.

    19 300XC at 60.5 hours

    Yes. I’ve been having a ton of fun riding around. I’ve been to the mountains near me before the weather turned crazy. Now I’m riding at sea level during the winter months. Very cool Info. !!! Thanks. That makes sense that the bikes running over a 35P are compensating for the lean condition by the failed gasket. Either running rich or lean will obscure any jetting and as the condition of the o ring and gasket worsens, it makes the bike untunable. Or at the very least, causing one to be constantly re jetting the bike. That can be frustrating!! How often does that need replacing? I’ll add that in to part of my maintenance routine.
