Parts supplier other than halls?

Recommended Posts

So it looks like I've got my list of needed parts to rebuild this motor, called Halls for prices and this is what they gave me:

Conrod assembly- $207

Clutch hub- $145

And I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a new piston- $267 (This is the one that really hurts)

I'm brand new to Huskys, is there anywhere else I might be able to get these parts any cheaper? (Especially the piston!)

I've attached a photo of the piston. Long story short, top of piston, rings and cylinder walls are perfect, untouched. The skirts (other side of the piston too) are scored as you can see, from what I guess was all the metal flying around from the conrod bearing that blew out. Like I said everything else is undamaged, is it necessary that I replace the piston? I feel like the answer is yes, but i'm not that experienced with the insides of piston engines and if I can save the $267 here without regretting it later I would like to.

For sure replace that. Cheap insurance and it looks beat. Bills Motorcycles Plus is a VERY good dealer like Halls. Halls is top notch though so I going with them is good.

Ok will do. Any thoughts on Wossner pistons? I can get one from Husqvarna outlet for $199.

Heres another question that brings up, they sell this piston in standard, 1st over, and 2nd over. I'm assuming I would get standard since I'm not planning on touching the cylinder right?

you should always mic out the cyclinder, most high end forged (Wossner,Vertex, Wiseco, Mahle etc) pistons now are A,B,C sized for exact cylinder clearance match even on "chrome" cylinders. most of these companies will answer your piston questions, PS as for OEM you also get what pay for, Husky uses EU high end supplier stuff from top quality manufacturers.

2004 TC 450 converted to sumo.

I had my piston mic'ed, 97mm, it is stock. Wossner pistons come in 96.94, 96.95, and 96.96, what gives???? which one do i get? 96.94 is considered "standard", 1st over and 2nd over for the other two

You need to mic your cylinder and buy the correct piston for the tolerance needed. Mic the complete cylinder top to bottom to see if it became "egg" shaped out of round. If this happen then you will need to bore to round.

I should not reply here because all of you will believe I am insane and agree with my wife who says she never want to hear about my bikes, TE450, XR100R, CBR1000F.

But what else can an old man do, I cannot remember my name half the time.

I am waiting for my 08 TE450 and the repair cost could exceed $3300.00.

      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.
