I am absolutely wrapped in mine, it is simply an awesome machine.it eats  tight tracks for breakfast even thou I’m fat old and slow it gets me off the seat and it’s like a box bike with a user friendly engine until you rip it then it becomes a rocket.there are videos around on the tpi with guys riding big hills and gulleys in America where stopping and starting the engine fixes any altitude dramas

Like last year on a zero degrees Wombat ride all the Carby bikes wouldn’t run,screw drivers out adjusting air screws, lol The tpi bikes just start and ride no dramas

KTM350 if you do decide to buy a tpi mate the best advice I can give you is don’t stuff around with them and make engine modifications ( Tpi Facebook page ) that’s when you will start getting problems, the bikes are amazing as they are.

 

And to answer your question, buy a tpi over a Carby all day everyday day

I heard yesterday that if you drown a tpi in a river crossing etc..it's a tow home job..that bothers me a bit.

No different than drowning a 4stroke , same process.

But not as easy as a carby 2t ? I'm not an expert on river crossings these days.. something I'd like to get better at... drowning bikes bothers me tho..I always thought 2T was much easier to get working post a swim ..but I heard not so with the TPI. I feel most manufacturers will end up TPI anyways as time rolls on

Have you seen Johnny Walker's drowning in the recent Lagares hard enduro? His whole bike was drowned/fully submerged with him swimming it to a boat ramp, they did the usual tipping it up to remove as much water, he kept hitting the starter button, mechanic removed the filter, cleaned whatever was in the airbox and within a few minutes...bang and he's off to finish the prologue!!!

Na same thing as a carby model to dewater  and I found the pull down pretty  much the same in fact that there not much different  if engine wise  it more carby vs butterfly  and  owning a ktm 17 250 exc and a ktm 250 tpi and have pull both apart  and dewater a tpi . i said tpi better imo
