  3. What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    Looping out a brand new bike because you weren't expecting the map switch to make so much of a difference so you didn't cover the rear brake....
  4. What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    Doesn't work like that, T&C's are so they don't sue you if they fall off & hurt themselves. Same as any organised ride. 3 dealers/organiser & 70 plus potential customers gets a little hard to control as you could imagine. Some of the stories I've heard send a shiver down my spine. Bikes burning to the ground after exhausts setting fire to long dry grass & people walking away, bikes being stolen etc. you would be surprised what actually goes on..
  5. What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    Putting on a demo day & having people riding outside their limits, badly damaging brand new bikes then walking away without saying a word to do it many more times on other brand new bikes like it's ok... Then waiting an hour & asking to ride them again...
  6. Throttle cams

    4T g2 much more control. off/on throttle control is much better for singles. Have not tried one on a 2T yet. I'm the Australian importer for G2 Ergonomics so ask others as well for their opinion.
  7. Bruised / Fractured Ribs

    Yep.... they suck & there's nothing you can do. Try not to cough, sneeze, fart or laugh... it really hurts, about 3 or 4 weeks. I did my tail bone on Sunday & it's very similar but you can't sit down. Get well soon!

  9. Beta 4T Stepper Motor Thingo

    Beta has a standard map, plus 100 (100rpm), plus 300 (300 rpm) map & FMF maps. Higher the idle rpm, the less engine braking. Dealer modified only at the moment but MY17 models have a 'read only' accessible ecu via any can bus compatible scan tool & the adapter supplied when the bike is purchased new. Hope this helps.
  10. Would you buy the first 300 exc tpi?

    Very, only the XC & EC 250 & 300. They are currently testing an all new 4T range at the moment.
  11. Would you buy the first 300 exc tpi?

    No 200 for Gas Gas in Australia

    Very true, apparently Jarvis likes it according to an interview I saw. most manufacturers can pass euro 4 & 5 with a carb. The sherco design from the image is very close to direct injection, unfortunately the injector is not above the exhaust port with would mean a fuel loss in the engines cycle, I guess the only way it could be done would be directly through the top of the head which bring its own problems. Correct misting, higher fuel pressure to compensate for compression etc. Like you, I'm very interested to see what is produced.

    Just as I said above in my first reply. Notice the throttle body?? Synerject if I'm not mistaken.
  14. 2018 KTM 250/300 EXC TPI

    Notice something a little better in design & not so good...
  15. 2018 KTM 250/300 EXC TPI

    Wait another year. Only Europe was supposed to get FI 2T in 2018 so they could deal with teething issues. The only reason they are going worldwide is USA demand.... Other manufacturers already have an FI 2T ready to go but are waiting for the shitstorm of faults in KTM FI 2T to clear. Also, how much more does everyone think these FI 2T's will cost???
