How are the late model TPI bikes holding up? I just watched a Barry Morris video where he mentioned too many problems combined with a 30 day warranty (at least in Australia) for him to consider one at this time.

Super helpful, thanks! I hadn't thought of the oil pump - on the 4t I had previously I'd maybe change the oil but usually just warmed the bike up in my van which had a heated rear area so I never had to worry about the cold like that because once the case is hot it'd stay warm enough to be fluid.

I have 225hrs on a 19 300 xcw tpi. Not a problem yet. Did the top end at 150 hrs, really didn't need it. I'm going to put in a new oil pump this week, again no problem with it. Just preventive.

The 300's power is very smooth. Coming of a KX500, it feels pretty boring even though you are moving right along. It never feels like it is trying to kill you. I miss that sometimes.

The front forks are set up like a super cross bike, very stiff. The harder you push the better they feel. Downside is, I'm not that fast anymore.

Good to see you here 😀

How's your new suspension from George?
Doing good. Have a few hours on it and all is well. Nothing tough tho, mostly dualsport stuff since my 501 is down. George has the shock for it as well
