  1. I believe you can road reg gg, same as te/exc. the tpi motor on the gg 300 is very linear, easy to ride. My understanding is tpi’s seize when they are cold there’s not much oils being supplied and a rider takes off accelerating with revs. Super important to warm them up Tpi’s are not all the same but most run fine especially for anyone who rides faster than walking pace. Tpi’s have sensors that tell the system how much is being requested from the motor, sensors seems to vary. Carbys work on vacuum, they give the motor what it requests.
  2. Hit up the gang for suggestions on where to find flowing tracks in your region. Get seat time, jump on an easy L1- L2 ride.... Coming into winter the basic thing is not to run too much tire pressure. Enjoy!
  3. Cheers Mick. Yeah got the ecu done. Big improvement! Runs much better. Cleaner all round. Less hesitation. (still not the same as a carby) When I ride my Carby around its very nice off idle but as mentioned before the mid range and got/suspension is very nice. Spurge out the pipe when idling around doing slow stuff... They only have a high comp head for the 150 (300 has low comp option) cheers
  4. Generally Fuel consumption is about the same as carby. I'm a goose mechanically but imho the implementation of tpi is not that great. Losing power off idle and off the top is a big compromise, its especially more noticeable on a small bore + The extra weight kinda mutes the benefits of a 150. The Mid range is Very good and usable, I think you would put that to good use! & like Ive mentioned before the linear power is nice in slippery chaos. The biggest advance of the '20+ models is the suspension improvements! Possibly a '21 with a Keihin carby would be a better bike. The above is being picky, riding almost any bike awesome!
  5. hey Murdoch Riding you trail for the 2nd time was even more enjoyable, the 1st time you kinda wide eyed getting through it....I rode the 1st bit twice today, the obstacles you've left in and challenges are really fun to try to time right. It's like a trials corse. Very impressive effort!
  6. I was impressed with what I read in the description. Have contacted tsp with questions, all being well will get it done.
  7. About a year ago I heard Murdoch was working on something special. I'd ask other riders from time to time if any news on it, so it was awesome today to get to see it. I think the track should be called “Murdoch's Masterpiece”. Very impressive! Its the the type of riding I enjoy immensely, so really enjoyed the ride! The New Years Eve bbq was 1st class. Better food than I get at home & good chatting around the fire! Also good to ride with fella’s I haven’t ridden with in awhile! A ride I will not forget, Cheers Murdoch!
  8. After chasing my tail (& waiting for you to jump) I went & picked up a 150tpi with the thought I’d give it a go, if I couldn’t make it work I'd move it on. Initially I hated the tpi missing power off idle (⅛ throttle) but turning the power valve in a long way improved it. Ive also changed my throttle/clutch timing slightly to compensate. Today I rode the carby & tpi back to back. You should come by next time your over my way. Its taken me some time to begin to see the light.... The Benefit of the tpi's linear curve permits a lot of control in techy stuff, its enjoyable & surprised me on climbs. It has more mid ¼+ than the carby which helps greatly to carry through & up stuff. I think it'll be a benefit in the wet. It does not rev out as high as the carby, signs off earlier. The way the 150carby lights up is the bomb, the old man in me is ok trading it for more mid range (but the 18yr old who peeps out on occasion may not be:) The TPI runs clean but I'm still learning what the bits do. Up at Goughs between two V climbs the bike stopped and a engine light was flashing. I had phone service so got Wade to look up what the flashing light sequence meant, it pointed to crankcase sensor, was about to try to swap 2 identical sensors when notice a small hose that went to the crankcase had come off under the tank. I think I just got unlucky (then lucky) Hopefully based on other’s no stress experiences this was a one of. Not cool. More so than the engine the new Geo is what I enjoy about the bike. Its really noticeable how balanced it is for techy stuff, I ride a long log with both bikes, its very clear… I thought the new frame is a copy of the MX but it doesn’t seem to corner was well when sitting like mx railing a berm or maybe I just need to adapt..It actually seems more Enduro/trials shape like the Sherco, prob foot peg location. The Forks are a dramatically improved, they are like I remember my best bikes being. My carby kickstars 1st kick but we've found a hill or two lately that take an hour or two to climb, often pushing, having the higher wattage Starter motor is a game changer for this old man. Anyway just a few observation, Im pretty slow to change so still getting use to it. Basically there’s characteristic of both bikes I like. No doubt the coming years will bring improvements to the tpi.
  9. Interesting Review Mick,, well until gets to his riding... bike seems to die like the stock one does. As far as I can tell the tsp mod improves the mid-top, not the off idle (⅛ throttle) be interested if it did fixed the tpi fluff. cheers
  10. And the big question, everyone is watching 'whats next for mick'
  11. Is the xc tpi map punchier than the exc for 21? Cheers
  12. not really. its down low! I just mentally knew it was there.. (150 behaves differently from when the tanks full or low. power to weight) "bring back the 200"
  13. Riding skills improved..haha no Sill dinging pipes Wasn’t happy with the fit. Every kg makes a diff on a 150 ... was just something I tried
