Just found this out today. The water pump is internal. No extra side cover for the wp housing.
This is the right side. No wp.

Left side. Cooling outlet is the round tube below the motor mount and in front of the end of the crank. As I understand it this means there is no wp seals to leak. Pretty cool huh? Thx Mark Weeks for pointing this out.

That's a very good idea. I suspect the reasoning is for protection during extreme enduros or good tight single track.

That intake is super low on the case. Good.
The S3 Start head Stock?
Cylinder and Power Valve control looks very KTM.
Electronic control PV

The S3 head is stock. I'm willing to bet that there is very little on this bike that didn't come from another brand. Piber told me that the piston is a KTM piston so I would not be surprised if the cylinder and pv are too. By the way the bikes uses the same wheels as a KTM. Personally I think this is brilliant because it keeps the development cost low and allows the customer to use wheels they may already have. That's what I would have done if I were building a new bike! :lol: :lol: :lol:

A lot of customers have a separate set of KTM wheels. I was surprised how many!

Clay it's hard to tell from the photos, does the JTG engine have a crank case drain in case we go swimming?

Clay, the more I see the JTG, the more I think that I may switch from TM. I have wanted a TM300 4T for a while, but the gremlins associated with EFI are a hard sell (I have had EFI on snowmobiles for 10+ years, and have a love/hate with EFI. The JTG 250/300 2T just looks to have all the goods. The only downside to a 2T is having to constantly repack the silencer due to oil saturation, especially when running a spark arrestor.
