te250 vs 310

Recommended Posts

well at the moment im thinking of 2 options there a te 310 2010 in my husky shop and i wanna know if the newer te 250 2011 moddle is better off than a 310. i would like to get a 310 cause i have been riding my bro wr250f alot lately and really the shop owner says that a 310 hasnt got much low grunt in it but would it be worth getting the 310 or 250. dont need enough power to kill me or flip but is it worth it? i have a middle riding skill not a beginner and far from it but not a pro. currently i have a crf 230 09 and is good but need more power and i have ridden a 510 and man they have power little to much for me. but what i want to know is how much maintaining would i have to do and difference between the te 250 and 310 is it better off or worse

i do morely tight trails and open hills and stuff like that but in a comment i need to know what a hair scramble is?

my hight and weight are

16years hight is 175cm 1.75m or weigh 55kg or 121.25 lbs would my heigh or weight be good enough for the bike or not

would abosulty love your opinion:worthy::prof::smirk::smirk:

This question is very difficult to answer ... I own a 08 TXC250 and zero experience on a 310 ... My 08 TXC250 is a very good bike and I hardly never pin it to get from point A to point B and I'm never last .... I'd want a TXC model over any TE model unless you just need the plate on its back because the TXC models are much more of a racer bike than the TE models ...

Both bikes will be well past that crf 230 on performance in the dirt ... Both will feel much taller and heavier ... Maintenance between the 2 machines should be almost identical and nothing more than normal bike stuff such as oil changes, filter cleaning, chain stuff ... Both are EFI models I think ... There was 1 thread out here that was against a 310 of a specific year model (maybe the 2010 yr model) but this Husky site is so polluted, it is sometimes hard to tell reality from facts ... 310 is a bigger number than 250. If physics holds true, it should have more power than a 250 in most cases ...

A hare scramble is type of offroad race as this link tries to explain ....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hare_scramble

Let me add this on UR height and weight ... Some of the greatest bike riders of all time (RC4 and JS7 to name a couple of today) are shorter, light guys ... Don't let the height thing be come an obstacle ... Surfers are also normally shorter guys ...:lol:

Less weight on you means less the bike carries and nothing wrong with that ... That height thing comes into play when dabbing and if you learn to ride, how to really ride, dabbing become less and less

I have the 2009 310 (identical to the 2010). The 2011 Husky 250 is noticeably lighter and at your weight I'd seriously look in its direction. The two bikes have a similar amount of power, but the 310 seems to have a better powerband. I believe HomeFinanceUSA has actually owned both bikes, perhaps you should PM him.

Good luck:thumbsup:

I think your best bet would be to get a 2011 te310. It was redesigned this year and is identical to the 2011 te250 except for the increased displacement. I've had mine for a few months now and I can say it has a lot of power down low. I could have bought a 2010 te310 for much cheaper but based on what I've read the 2011 is a superior bike.

      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.
