    Video: KTM'S CARB VS TPI (TRANSFER PORT INJECTION)

    Sure it could be a materials problem , I would hope we know enough about 2 strokes to have got passed that stage, but not discounting it The tpi and carb bike share all the same basic engine parts. If it were a material problem you would see similar seizures on carb bikes. Maybe there are carb bike seizures like this but we would never know because only tpi failures are hyped up online

    I think he is on to something. Speculation? Yes, but we need to look where the evidence leads us. Case in point. We have heard that EARLY tpi bikes were seizing. Was it the original map causing this? All 2019 and newer bikes have a different map and that’s the ONLY difference.

    I agree. I think the ecu isn’t telling the pump to flow enough oil intermittently. The pump itself is faultless.

    The point is on a tpi the air fuel ratio will remain perfect through elevation changes. A carb doesn’t care about air density.

    Tpi must be crazy good running when so many people are buying them despite all the problems sycamore listed.

    The ecu KTM used was used on various production motorcycles from around 2006 on. It certainly is outdated. However, my tpi, and the majority of others, run excellent despite this fact.

    It takes more like 3 seconds, it beats jetting, that’s for sure.

    Although it’s not reading pressure and adjusting in real time, I stop or kill the engine enough anyway so it doesn’t matter to me

    No, the pressure sensor is only activated for moment at shutdown. That value is used next time you ride the bike until you shut it down again, which again is read and used for the next startup and so on. The manual does recommend shutting off after so much elevation and restarting

    The computer uses the pressure value read by the sensor at the last engine shutdown cycle. It does not update this value during riding so wherever the motor was shutdown last is the altitude the bike is tuned for.

    What riding conditions did this bike see?
  12. Just curious about the very light oil. Testing will be with 5 weight simply because nothing lighter was in stock at my local dealer.
  13. Oddly enough, the spec sheet calls for 2.5 weight oil. Why? I used kyb 5 weight.
