Recommended Posts

I have it from a very good source that there is something special coming from Husky next year. A brand new 2-stroke engine with up to date technology, I might be tempted by this one!!!!

I thought we weren't going to see anything until 2012?

It will be very interesting to see how far Husky has pushed the envelope. The WR250/300 will be the last model to get the new frame and with an update on the engine this could be pretty cool. I know I will own one. :banana:

Not sure about bikes, but 2012 is the next big change year for snowmobile emission standards, has been pushing the (twostroke) technology forward.

I would love e-start but I am setting my bar a little lower with just a lighter motor in the new frame. But as long as we are wishing and the world ends in 2012 :banana:

OK:

Direct injection

e-start

20 kg motor

in the TXC 250 frame

What else?

I would rather have lighter weight IMO.

Dam right :banana:

:lol: come alot of husqy owners want a electric start???:banana:

I am not a big lad and i can kick my wr250 off first kick. even on a steep hill i can manage it in two or three, I personaly think its dead weight and like the husqy cos it doesnt have an electric start. i even cick off my mates ktm 400 and dont use it cos im that used to kicking..... I cant see a problem

If you want electric this and that buy KTM like the rest of the world

I love the husqvarna, a lighter frame would be nice but that is it

Shout out to husqvarna if you are listening:

-Nice new light frame

_lighter reliable motor

-please please please no electric start and batterie PLEASE!:banana::banana:

off road bike with out a kick start, tis the work of the Devil

No wait, I can just picture it now................

I'm in the northyorkshire moors, its raining and very slippy, only two of us have gone out.

I get thrown down by a deep rut hidden in the Yorkshire mos:cripple:.

I wait for my mate to stop laughing and taking photos:lol:, and then he helps me up...

I pick up the bike and press that magic button, 90 percent of folks could not do without:naughty:

Whats that noise....no wait...... that's right its silence:lol:, the batterie is dead as a door nail:foul:

I know ill bump it off, but soon realise that the fuel injection is useless with out power:busted: if only i had a carb and a kick start i wouldn't have to push my bike 20 miles back down the track.

I know the bmw GX450S dont have a kick start, and here is what the dealer said to me, here we go, ready.... cough cough

'When we ride out on th BMW's, we usually take a small pair of jump leads out with us just in case'

Needless to say i walked away,

so let me see, 150 trail ride tomorrow. im leading so have to be responsible ish!:lol:

-Food

-Tools

-Inner-tubes

-Drinking water

-2-stroke oil

-1 litre of fuel pre-mixed, just incase

-First aid kit of sorts

-Oh yeah, most importantly ****ING JUMP LEADS

viva le kick start only :banana:

come on husqy stand out from the croud:moon:

The news I have heard is the man who designed the current KTM 2-stroke engine has left KTM and is now working at Husky, he is building this new engine and it will have fuel injection!!!

I would think that Husky can have its cake and eat it too. Do like GasGas and offer the e-start as an option for more $$$. If it is going to have FI it will have a battery and the lithium Ion bats are stupid light and small. So Husky can just add the e-start as a Hard Part. My guess is the majority of sales will be without the e-start, but they would still sell a pile of the option parts.

I realize that the new scoot is going to disapoint the backwards to the future crowd. It will not be an aircooled, analog ignition, power valveless motor. But I am willing to bet that it will be lighter, better handling, and more advanced than the current WR 250/300. I will buy one with or without e-start but I do hope the DI or at leat FI rumor is true. I would love to not have to compromise on jetting when riding between 3000' and 10000' on the same ride. Plus multiple fuel and ignition maps for the differring conditions.

      Long story short I bought this 2011 WR300. The thing is mint, looks brand spanking new. The thing ran like a top, but only had one problem, a low idle. I was to lazy to fix it and just dealt with the fact that I always needed to keep a little bit on the throttle. My third ride on it, I took it to the florence dunes and the top end burnt up. I have just finished fixing it and all I need to do is break it in. I need to adjust the idle first though, and don't know if I'll have the idle too high until it starts. I don't want to hurt the motor on a fresh rebuild and want some opinions on what to do. Do you think it will be fine? How many turns out should I set the carb just to be safe?
      Any response helps

      Just bought a used 2017 Husqvarna FC450. It's my 1st EFI bike so I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue.
      After starting the bike cold and idling for about a minute or two, it blows a puff of blue smoke from the exhaust pipe if I roll the throttle. It also does this if I stop to talk to a riding buddy on a trail or on the side of the track, let it idle, and then start out on track again. After revving it once the blue smoke is gone but riding buds have told me they smell and occasionally see a puff of blue smoke when following me - not a constant stream just a puff and then it's gone for a while. I'm talking to myself over trying to locate the cause of this as a leak-down test shows no issue. 
      Bike history
      Bought used with 70 hours on it. 
      Original owner had an FMF header and tailpipe on it which he kept. He sold it to me with the stock pipe. He never had it remapped for the FMF pipe
      Started it's life in Atlanta GA 
      Now mostly ridden at sea level
      He told me he used mineral-based 10w-40 Yamalube oil. The manual calls for 10w-50 Ester-based synthetic - which the bike is now running. 
      This is what I've tried so far:
      Leak-down test produced only a 3-5% loss.
      No bubbles in the coolant with the cap off
      No air leak at the exhaust pipe
      No leak at intake
      Barely, barely noticeable hiss when I remove the oil fill cap - but again not enough to lose any more than 5% pressure during the leak-down test.
      Wouldn't matter but checked the valve clearances while the valve cover was off. They were in spec.
      No loss of power
      No milky engine oil from a coolant leak
      No loss of engine oil as seen at the engine oil level window - never needed to add oil between changes
      Talked to someone who builds motors for a living and he said "all KTM/Husqvarna's do it especially when cold because the EFI delivers more fuel on startup as opposed to running at operating temperature". I guess I can see that but why does the bike blow blue smoke at operating temperature then if I pull off the trail or track for 1 minute to ask one of my riding buds something? I'm not letting it idle for minutes at a time. 1-2 minutes tops. Is this just normal for KTM/Husqvarna/4-stoke racing bikes?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Former bikes where 2-strokes (CR250, RM125) and a 1993 DR350 which I could've let idle for 20 minutes an not seen blue smoke - but that was a carbed bike. I've always known if a 4-stroke is smoking blue it's burning oil and you shouldn't keep riding it. So I'm a bit concerned about whipping it around the track or taking it out a few miles on trails.

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
