    That carb is just Amazing ! works like a charm the bottom end is really crisp with that carb doing mostly single track it improoved my riding alot !

    Our mod 85 running the SmartCarb has been flawless. Doesn’t matter temp swings it runs crisp every time. It creates bottom end power and is super smooth all the way to the top. We struggled getting that last 10% on the top end with the stock Keihin, but with the SmartCarb we can achieve it no matter the conditions.

    I installed the 28mm SC2 SmartCarb into my 2017 KTM Freeride and am a happy customer. I’ve put 30 miles of technical singletrack on the carb so far and have leaned it out 2 clicks based on plug readings and tailpipe smoke/oil as indicators. The installation was a breeze, quite a bit easier than the first model on a different Freeride due to it being a little shorter in length. I did trim off the intake flange stock carb locating nibs and cut off the stock carb drain hose bracket for better clearance. Love the simplicity of this design.

    Still a bit of work to do with the clicker setting but so far I’m seeing more power and smoother power modulation at low RPMs (roll on power). I ride technical singletrack in central Idaho from 5-9k elevation. I get through most switchbacks without feathering the clutch and have lost no torque with the SmartCarb; if anything the torque is improved. The jury is still out on the fuel economy but I’m planning a longer 50-100 mile ride before the snow flies to test that out.

    I got this SmartCarb to replace the stock Keihin on my KTM Freeride 250R. I ordered it over the phone and it was good to hear that TEC know my bike and what metering rod to use, to get the adapter ring and to cut a little plastic piece that’s not needed anymore.
    Shipping was quick and installation was straightforward. The carb is nicely machined and feels like quality. TEC had already set the metering rod and idle for my application and it was spot on so the bike fired right up. For tuning, make sure to follow the procedure in the manual (play with clicks first and adjust idle last). I played with it for a while but eventually ended up with the same settings the carb came with.
    Fueling is spot on throughout the throttle range and very reliable. I ride from sea level to 7500ft and hot to freezing, damp to dry and so far haven’t had to make any carb adjustments. I think I gained a bit more power and better mileage but that’s hard to tell for sure — it definitely didn’t get worse. I noticed that “luggability” got even better and power delivery feels smoother.
    With the Keihin I frequently had the engine cut out on me during steep hill climbs (worst possible moment) even after adjusting the float height. Problem is gone with the SmartCarb.
    Other things I appreciate: The carb is not spilling fuel when the bike is laid over and there’s no overflow/vent hoses that could get clogged or pinched or suck in water which was an ongoing issue with the stock carb. Also, the choke is on the left side of the carb and much easier to reach 🙂

    If you own a KTM Freeride 250 you need the SmartCarb. – No more annoying low speed stutter, instant starting, more bottom end grunt and smooth top end. Better fuel economy is also an added bonus. Fitting couldn’t be easier as it is a direct replacement to the standard carb. The team at Technology Elevated are extremely helpful and if you have any questions you can contact them by phone, or email and they are quick to respond.
    Well worth the money!

    For the last several years I have worked closely with the developer of the SmartCarb, Corey Dyess, to bring SmartCarb technology to GasGas Trials Bikes and I can now say that we have nailed it! I have the first production 28mm Billet SmartCarb on my 300cc Factory Replica TXT Pro and it performs absolutely perfect. I’ve ridden from 980 ft (here in Kansas City) up to elevations as high as 11,600 ft in Colorado with no adjustments necessary other than an idle screw tweak here and there to my liking. What a relief to never have to change jetting anymore for the altitude you’re riding at! The carb is very easy to set and can be adjusted without any tools or hassle by using the mixture clicker adjuster on top of the carb and once it’s dialed in, you forget it. The SmartCarb adds noticeable power from idle all the way up to the rev limit of the engine while giving very fine throttle control. You will experience a smooth and controllable power increase throughout the RPM range and I’ve seen my fuel economy increase too, which is also a big bonus! The SmartCarb improves every operational aspect of my bike and at this point, I’d be hard pressed to ride without it.
