Revolutionary TE 250i/300i Fuel-Injected Machines Headline Seven Model 2018 Enduro Line-Up

May 30, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Adding a significant benchmark to their timeline for model year 2018, Husqvarna Motorcycles introduce the next generation of 2-stroke machines – the all-new, fuel-injected TE 250i and TE 300i. Offering unprecedented advantages in terms of performance, rideability, fuel consumption and ease of use, the introduction of fuel-injection by Husqvarna Motorcycles is a bold new step into the future of offroad motorcycling.

ogether with the fuel-injected 2-strokes, Husqvarna Motorcycles present a heavily updated range of TE and FE machines for model year 2018. Collecting feedback from top-level competition and combining it with extensive research, the brand’s engineers ensured that the 2018 TX 125, FE 250, FE 350, FE 450 and FE 501 remain true to Husqvarna Motorcycles’ commitment to offer premium motorcycles across their enduro range.

NEW GENERATION 2-STROKES

Perfectly embodying Husqvarna’s pioneering spirit, the new from the ground up fuel-injected TE 250i and TE 300i machines feature engine technology that revolutionises the field of 2-stroke enduro motorcycles. Featuring a pair of fuel injectors positioned at the transfer ports, the new system delivers the perfect amount of fuel into the engine at all times, across all conditions. Offering a significant reduction in fuel consumption and emissions, it also provides a smooth and clean power delivery on both machines.

With the injectors delivering the fuel mixture downwards into the transfer port, the system ensures a much more efficient combustion. Carefully placed at the rear of the cylinder, a special tube relays intake pressure data to the new ECU. Gathering information from the throttle position sensor, the air and intake pressure sensors, together with the crankcase pressure and water temperature sensors, the ECU automatically compensates for temperature and altitude changes eliminating the need to modify carburettor jetting.

Vital for internal engine lubrication, the 2-stroke oil is stored in a separate tank thus eliminating the need for pre-mixing. With its filler tube running through the frame, the 0.7 lt tank contains oil for five full tanks of fuel depending on conditions. Controlled by the EMS the oil pump delivers the ideal amount of oil reducing waste as well as excessive smoke.

TE 250i/300i FUEL INJECTION HIGHLIGHTS

=> Fuel injectors at the transfer ports → Ideal amount of fuel in all conditions
=> Oil pump & oil tank → Convenient, eliminates pre-mix
=> 39 mm throttle body → Regulates air flow, TPS relays airflow data
=> New EMS → Modern engine management, no need for jetting changes
=> Standard map select → Customise power characteristics
=> Frame integrated oil filler cap → Simple refills
=> Translucent fuel tank → Large capacity, fuel pump integrated
=> New intake snorkel → Adapted to throttle body

A COMPLETE LINE-UP

Combining the most advanced engine technology with a series of dynamic upgrades, all Husqvarna Motorcycles 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines set the benchmark in terms of handling, power, weight and aesthetics.

Developed by WP Performance System the front forks are specifically designed for enduro riding. For MY18, the forks feature new outer tubes offering improved flex characteristics and reduced friction. A stiffer setting also provides extra sensitivity and improved bottoming resistance.

Also new for MY18 are the Magura front and rear brake systems. Featuring a similar layout to the design used on previous model Husqvarna enduro bikes, each system features optimal sensitivity and a progressive feel while retaining the highest level of performance. Second to none in terms of functionality and style, the new ProTaper handlebars feature class-leading fatigue resistance while adding minimal weight.

MY18 ENDURO HIGHLIGHTS (ALL MODELS)

=> WP Xplor 48 front fork → new fork tubes & setting for added sensitivity & bottoming resistance
=> Magura brake callipers & GSK discs → Excellent sensitivity & progression
=> New ProTaper handlebar → Class-leading function & style

The new Husqvarna MY18 enduro range will be available worldwide from July 2017 onwards at all authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers. For all details on pricing and availability, please refer to your national Husqvarna Motorcycles Subsidiary or Importer.

The Media Kit with the complete technical information and the full Image gallery will be released on June 26, 2017.

      Hi all, 
      Back after a hiatus from supermotos after I sold my KTM 625SMC. Now I've got a 701SM (2016) and ... of course, fuel injection, no more carbs! 
       
      Couple of questions I hope someone can help with - the bike already had a few mods: 
      Akrapovic slip on, with EVO Airbox mod. 
      power commander V 
      ABS dongle mod
      Those are all that's really relevant for this post. 
      Essentially the previous owner told me that 0 was the bad quality fuel map, 1 was sport map and 2 onwards were standard maps. Doing a little digging, it turned out this wasn't quite correct. 
      1 is the soft map, 2 is the sport map and 3 onwards are standard as far as I've found. 0 is of course the bad fuel map only for dire situations on low octane. 
      My question is, will the PCV change these maps at all? 
      I don't know where to control the PCV maps 'on the fly' - seems this requires a separate module? 
      Other than this I think I have it right that the PCV control injection, whereas the underseat switch controls ignition timing. This would make sense given that on low octane, preventing detonation is usually Achieved by regarding ignition. 
       
      Can anyone correct me or give any of their findings? 
       
      Thanks

      I picked up a rm250 a few months back for cheap missing carb needed stator missing coil and CDI box needed a kicker and stuff. Long story short I put case seals in it went though and inspected everything put it all together and got it running with an old Mikuni 125cc carb. I parked the bike for awhile (other projects) it’s summer time and I have time to work on the bike again. Put a bigger carb on it mounted the plastics rode it around etc. But I’m having issues figuring out what year it is. Here’s what’s got me stumped. It’s got a blue seat that goes onto the gas tank it says RM so I know it’s right for the bike the air box also has “RM” holes for air. I think it might be the RT version? Does anyone know if the air holes were stock? Or if that’s the stock seat? 
      Also if anyone could tell me what kind of bars theses are that would be great  
      this bike IS water cooled (just missing one of the rads)

      I have a 2018 KTM 250 SX and I have found my way to this forum because my ktm dealer is the only one in a two hour radius and does not know a lick about their own bikes. Also all of my family and friends have never had KTM's or Husky's. 
      I race motocross and am in the Intermediate/B Class, I weight 185 pounds. 
      So I was hoping I had some KTM gear heads on here to help me answer some questions. Warning: I am about to ask a lot of information so if some threads are already created just please point me to the link.
      My main goal is kind of crazy in my mind... I need more longer wrap out time in 2nd gear but need 3rd gear to be snappy out of turns so I do not burn up my clutch.  I ask this because a lot of the tracks I ride at in Missouri have pretty good size jumps right out of a sweeper or sharp turn. I dont like to hit them in 2nd right now because I get the Ronnie mac air boner affect in the air (because 2nd gear is very snappy and short). 
      1. Does anyone have any recommended adjustments for the RED power valve spring? (turns out/turns in?) Also what is the tool/socket I need to adjust, Robertson? What size?
      2. Any recommended suspension settings other than the manual? 
      3. My manual says the bike has a Performance ignition map that can be plugged in? Is that correct or is that only for the EXC models? 
      4. What rear tire has everyone seemed to run on this bike, 120 or 110? 
      5. Hate the long silencer exhaust, Should I run the FMF Shorty or the ProCircuit Shorty? 
      6. What size rear sprocket seems to work best for motocross with this bike? 49? 
      thanks for the much needed help!

      On my 2008 rmz 450, at 1/4 throttle there's this horrible studder. It started about a month ago. The bike has about 70 hours on it i bought it later last year and never had a problem with it. The only thing that i changed on it was the header pipe it had the stock one and i tweaked it where it was making a weird noise so i replaced it with a stock one.
      Things i have tried............................
      New spark plug
      Cleaned the air filter 
      Oil change 
      Checked the valves one exhaust is on the loose side but not out of spec.
      I may try injector cleaner but idk if thats ok for these bikes.
      Any help is appreciated thanks in advance

      I have a '02 yz85 and today I replaced the right side crank seal, head o-rings, and swapped out the head for a VHM performance head. I also put a FMF SST pipe on it with a FMF Shorty. The bike has been working perfectly all day, other than running poorly since i need to rejet. But no other problems then that. I came into the garage about 5 hours after riding, and noticed that when I turned the kickstart over, theres some grinding noise. It did not do this after I put it back together, it just started out of nowhere. While I was putting the clutch back together I noticed the shaft the clutch goes on moves in and out, I called my friend who has replaced the clutch on his 85 and he said it was normal and his was the exact same, so I didnt worry about it.  After I put it back together it was not making this noise, and didnt make it after riding either. Just started out of nowhere. Heres a vid to show what it sounds like. I don't remember it ever making this noise. I took the clutch apart to make sure nothing was wrong, I didnt find anything wrong except a little gasket maker that got onto the clutch since I put too much. Doesnt feel like theres any resistance while kicking it over, in the video the spark plug is out. Help?
