    I guess there is just those forward thinkers always looking for better methods, and there are those that for what ever reason can't see past their nose, too frightened perhaps of new ideas, perhaps just frightened of what they don't undetstand. And just want to stick to a more simple time. I get that. But the rest of us want to move on to better things.

    Okay then. What issues have you personally had with a TPI 2 stroke?

    Yep, same 80 hour mark that they say all 250/300's need a complete bottom end bearing replacement and rod replacement.

    Kind of disingenuous. Nobody has any issue with carbs. More power to you, if that's what you prefer. But to convert a TPI to a carb? Ridiculous.

    TPI's are more complex. But they are also simpler to own. Kind of like cars these days. Far more complicated than the carbed vehicles they replaced, yet so much easier to own, and so much more dependable.

    TPI is not a problem, problem is how they implemented it IMO. From simple and reliable 2 stroke motor we have less reliable and complicated 2 stroke motor.

    One nice thing about beta is they still offer the Race versions of 2 strokes with no oil pump and if you still want a kicker you can add it on.

    Face it bikes are going more electric until they are 100% electric - thats where its going. Cars & trucks too.

    Dont look at the Youtube vid of the Deegan kids testing a new KTM electirc mini. I know Deegans are spondosored by KTM but what the results show I beleive. The electirc mini lap times were faster than the 2T carbed mini. No carb, no clutch, no pre mix, less wrenching, etc. that's whats coming, all the "stuff" TPI guys are dealing with now is just the early phases before gas powered is history.

    If only there was a way to convert these pieces of garbage back to carbs.
    I don’t know what you have “heard”, but the oil pumps are very simple and reliable. Oh sarcasm, lol
