Comparision between WR360 and TE350?

Hi guys, just found this forum looking for some info on the loved Husky's.

I do have a question regarding two bikes. I know this is specifically for Fours, so i hope im not stepping out of line here. :naughty:

I am looking at Buying a Husky from between 93-95. But im undesided between what model would suite me best? A WR360 or TE350, price wise they are very similare.

But what of ride quality, Ive only ever owned one trail bike 84 TS250 while the rest have been on MX's. Riding either bike shouldnt be an issue. im 6 foot 2" So the extra height should also be helpfull.

My main concern is Power! or more so the Lack of it! Having not riddin for a while, Ive missed the whole four stroke dominance scene, So im concerned that the TE will be a bit of a slug (geez is that fair, using the two words together Harsh/ Husky)

The bike will be used for mostly work travelling purposes, with the odd weekend trail ride.

Whats your thoughts guys? Have you guys owned either bikes?

Thanks for you input. and thumbs up to the creators of this Forum :naughty:


Welcome to the TT Husky Forum ! I recently traded in my 92 TE350. I owned the bike for about 2 years and loved it. I never had any problems with it that I did'nt create myself. As far as power goes, there is always that certain circumstance when you could use more power but my bike had enough power for my "C" class cowtrail riding. I've never rode a WR360, I'm assuming that would be a 2-stroke. The WR would have more power, and be lighter. As for the TE, rock solid engine, very predictable power, easy to ride and bulletproof. And here in the US, the TE would get alot of looks from people saying "whats that?". Usually with a twinkle in their eye. And comments about the dual exhause cans. For a 92 4-stroke, the TE was fairly trick. It is a bit chunky, I think it tipped the scale at close to 280 lbs.

Can't go wrong with the TE350.........Good Luck


If you're travelling to work any distance (on the road) the fourstroke would be more practical. It would be smoother and eat less fuel. In comparison the WR would feel insanely fast - monster torque and midrange power - still very usable and high fun factor, just more care required with the throttle hand.

I had a 93 360 2 strk. I absolutely loved the motor and tranny. I was coming off a 125 and learned throttle control in a hurry. Like arjay said, torque and low/midrange power. Really no more top end than a 250. For any road uses, it does have a 6 speed and 3+ gallon tank (at least the WXE had the big tank). The stock gearing would work well on most roads. Weighs in around 228 lbs. I liked the bike so much I sold it to a good friend and bought an '02 360. Same motor and tranny as the 93. Before my 125, I had generally been a 4 stroke guy. The WR is very 4 stroke like. Hard to stall, best ridden a gear high for smooth power. In my mind, more power and 50 less pounds is hard to beat, get the 2 strk.


Guys your input has been a huge help. thanx.

I figured the TE would/ is a nice bike (For what info i could drag up). And the WR sounds like a tone of fun too:P being a bit of a power feind myself, I like the idea of the WR for the time beeing, From there i'll most likely look into a late model TE 400.

More weight is a real kill joy ive found too, (Read TS250) Thanxs a million guys.

keep the front wheel up :Y: From Australia


If you get the 360 do your self a favor and check out the decompresion head to ease starting from R and D Husky in Sydney,makes starting like a 125.


Hey thanx for the Advise vince.

Do they become a hand full to start? (when hot)

And do yoy know of any Shop that offer the Head in Queens Land (Sunny Coast) Vince?

Theyr'e not hard to start hot at all. Just takes a well timed boot on that short kicker to get it to fire up. I was never able to start mine from sitting, always had to leap up off the seat. It can be a pain in tough spots. The good thing is the kicker bottoms on the peg. R & D is the only place to get the decompression head. I have the decompression head on my '02 360. I can sit down, type, and start the bike with that mod. Really opens up your enjoyment. My knee loves it. As far as hot starting, I've had mine smoking hot, upside down, inside out, always starts. I won't say it too loud in here, but I think it's cause its a 2 stroke.

I dont have a 360,from what I hear they have some compression

and if they are like the 250 the kicker is short and high.No I dont know a specific Queensland shop,but I would assume it would not

be hard to fit.Its supposed to be like kicking a 125 and the best mod to do.I have a TE 350 92, is dead reliable,altho commuting is a

big ask,no oil pump on the 4 strokes till quite late in the run maybe 2000,its going to stuff the tyres running on the road a lot.

Ahhhhr, the old stumpy kick starters, I'd forgoten that the Sweeds/ Italian liked those :D

It'll be some thing i'll have to keep in mind, Thanxs for the help guys.

And never feer Colemanapp, your secreats safe with me mate :naughty: Hehehe. I'll never tell.

I never thought I could get so much info on the old Huskys, Did I see some were That Husqvarna should have there own Forum? Sounds good. Unless they made a section for the Two Strokes :D

There must be a calling for it?

Any way Guys, im stoked at the Help. I'll be comming back for sure. :naughty:

Keep those front wheels up :D

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Rider Starts his Quest to Defend Cross-Country Rallies World Championship
      March 15, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla will re-start his 2018 international rally racing campaign on March 24 to 29 at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge in the United Arab Emirates. Working hard towards returning to full competitive fitness following a foot injury sustained during the closing stages of the Dakar Rally, Pablo’s teammate Andrew Short is expected to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing squad at the 2018 Merzouga Rally in mid-April.

      With the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge playing host to the opening round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the event in the UAE will see Pablo Quintanilla begin the defence of his FIM Cross-Country World Championship title. Securing eighth overall at the 2018 Dakar Rally in January, the Chilean rally star is already looking forward to a solid return to racing aboard his FR 450 Rally machine.
      Successfully wrapping up his debut participation at the prestigious Dakar Rally with a top 20 result, Andrew Short has been recuperating from a fractured tibia and fibula on his lower right leg. Resuming his training sessions in the middle of March, the American has his eyes set on making a return to racing at the Merzouga Rally on April 15/20, in the dunes of Morocco.
      Celebrating its 28th edition in 2018, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is a six-stage-long rally taking place in the southern part of the United Arab Emirates. Kicking off with the traditional Super Special Stage on Saturday, March 24, the event will continue with five more days of racing in the Liwa Desert before competitors reach the finish line inside the Yas Marina circuit on March 29, 2018.

      Pablo Quintanilla: “Abu Dhabi will be our first race after the Dakar and I’m really looking forward to it. It’d be good to start the season carrying the #1 plate on my Husqvarna as the reigning champion. With it being the first race for the new season, it is important for everybody. My goal is to get a good race pace from the beginning in order to be inside the group of leading riders. The season will be long and my plan is to continue improving my pace as the racing goes on. I want to get back my racing speed and also remain strong throughout the event in Abu Dhabi. Taking place in deep sandy dunes, the Desert Challenge is always a tough event and it is also highly probable that we will have to race in high temperatures. It’s going to be a challenge but I’m looking forward to it.”

      Looking for some Wiring Harness, Connections and Installation assistance for installing a Tusk Universal Under the Fender LED Taillight with Brake Light on a Husqvarna 2017 TX300
      The UTFLight comes with a plastic connector that would work with the tusk enduro lighting kit which i'll be removing so that I can plug into the stock harness.
      I've been told the stock harness is the same as what would be included on the TE Model, minus the actual headlight/taillight being present; which is the case for the headlight wiring . it's all there ready to go.  For the taillight/brakelight however there is a bit more to be done.  There are NO wires running to the rear of the bike or within the SubFrame as some have noted
      I'll need to run to existing wires, and could use some guidance for which connectors are needed, if a supplementary harness is required(if so which one) and which wires to connect to on the existing harness.  There is very limited info in the manual (for either bike: TE/TX) or complete color harness diagram with info and connector information anywhere that I could find.
      I also picked up the Tusk Brake Switch Banjo bolt for the Brembo brakes (two wire, bullet connectors) - switch instructions.pdf 
      On the Brake side under the front/bottom of gas tank near radiator there is an existing connector (I think for radiator fan) and from it, two unused wires, I would say for tapping into the existing harness.  1 Solid Brown, 1 Yellow/Red - 
      Shifter side, near the bottom rear of tank I found taped up cylinder style connector (Someone can enlighten me) i think switch wires ? maybe some terminator,  each with the same color wire in as out.  One is Gray/Black and the other White/Black
      Under the cdi box is a three plug connector with two wires, 1 Brown and 1 White, third unused- i was hopeful this could be the tail light connector but am unsure
      Help on harness, connector names /types and setup is very much appreciated
