Where does that tube that comes off of it go? almost looks like another spark plug.

That other tube goes to the boot that connects the carb to the motor. When you kick it over its like it has no compression, we cant get it to start even with starting fluid. It has spark. Im scratching my head about what it could be.

I would unscrew it, find a short bolt to fit it, and then see if you have compression. KTM put an auto decompress on the 380 engines a few years ago, but they did not look like this.

That is the auto decompression device for a WR360 that R&D Husqvarna uses in their auto decomp head. I have their head and that device on my 360 and it works great. That being said this home made head attachment looks suspect. It is already leaking and it is really hard to say if it is sano on the inside. The decompression valve works on intake vacuum. As soon as their is vacuum build up the suction shuts the little valve. I would pull the head and the device and check operation. Don't throw it away as when working it is great.

What Wally said,

A reinvented rendition of a WR360 auto decomp head from R&D Husky Australia.

My old mans Victa lawn mower used to have one of these decompressors on it, believe it or not!!

Anyone know where I can purchase just the compression release valve? Mine has gone bad and I need a new one. I realize I can just plug that hole up and the bike will run fine, but my god does it suck to kick without that release.

E-mail R&D Husqvarna in Australia. I got one to use on another head and sold it to someone in need. They are great and very easy to deal with. My de-comp head beat my 360 to Montana from Arizona. Shipped at the same time.

DubDub,

That motor is just too clean. How much to ship it to the States.

I have a shifter cart project going that would pull some serious hole shots with that motor mounted up.

Thanks for the offer Wally, it did come up well. :thumbsup:

but unfortunately for you it does have a home, in my 00 WR360. I've nearly finished the restoration.

I did take your advice on opening up the manifold block.

Looks great. I went with 04 centenial graphics on mine, but I like how clean yours looks without the large 100.

      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
      -Dean

      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.
