2009 Husqvarna WR300 – Test – Dirt Rider

These are viable questions: How is the Husky 300? Is it as good as a KTM And there isn’t an answer will make anyone unless you’re really for the truth.

See, this is not as good as a KTM 300, the leader in class for a number of reasons, with the push of the KTM’s starter and finishing with advantages in lighter weight, suspension and much better But that doesn’t matter, talking about the Husky and that’s what we’re to do starting right now. If you get past what we just shame on you.

We didn’t the bike after the first ride and write what you to read.The WR starts life on a note: the kickstarter. Everyone who the awkwardly high, short and kickstarter commented on it, and not in a good But at least you knew you were an Open-class machine. It starts with a heavy foot. As our bike needed some

We leaned the needle all the way and dropped a of sizes on the main jet; the had been dropped a size we got the bike. It was a battle to get crisp and not have detonation or end up just too lean. Our setting was not good for but OK for trailing.Once jetted decently a “factory jetting kit” includes a much-needed needle, the WR a rocket.

It is fairly abrupt with the jetting, but with the new needle, the and its pull became smoother and at the same time. How fast? bike walks away 450cc four-strokes in a third-gear or even in hammer-down acceleration.

us, this bike is Open-class. because this motor not act fast, it just is. The gear is wide with a taller-than-perfect gear, followed by manageable between each of the rest up. We’d likely add a couple of to the rear sprocket to make the job easier when you want to go

The clutch does a good but the pull is too stiff with a than average throw.Some arise when we start picky, as the short shift and stiff clutch pull notchy shifting. The bike has a through the footpegs that some riders nuts, but the strangely, does not make it up the handlebar.

Yet the joy of the motor is at a cruising pace, you let the motor live mostly in one and go from a just-above-idle lug to a surly pull without having to at throttle-it-along and back-off-to-change-gears pace, the WR is fine. Just forget the layout of the machine is pretty and very flat, but nicely for most riders. The seat is on the side at the back but drew few

The bike fits all sizes of well and is never cramped or too out. In its design, the bike is one of the machines to work on that ever thrown a wrench at.

On to the department and the Husky is a mixed up of characteristics that does great and everything well. could be directed at the fork. Its is a little on the stiff or sticky and we ended up running it pretty on the compression and rebound to make the plush. This made the feel too springy and made the a little vague, but was much than having chop through the bar.

The steering like it is out there (a lot of offset) but at the time is light and planted. The WR like there is going to be of stability, but at super-high speeds the can get nervous. When going slow it can feel sluggish. fork seals liked to until we had the fork rebuilt.

The best trait was quite bottoming resistance, even low oil levels from the seal In the rear the Sachs shock a fine job, especially you get it set up; make sure you have a screwdriver to get to the hard-to-reach rebound We were running a bit more compression to help the turning and a less low-speed compression to the bike plush.

If we could get the to work as well as the back, the would rival anything on the sore point on our bike was The rear, equipped with a rotor, lacked feel and and locked too easily. The front felt soft and then bit and suddenly; this after a bleeding and cleaning of the pads.In market the level of refinement is so that even the little like most of the issues with this bike, some attention.

Do they it a bad bike? No, not at all. In fact, Husky has a place where it shines. Any time you are just Not racing. Not going on a super-tough-guy Just riding. Likely most riders really do. is where this bike right along and does it at a acceptable level. If you’re at a Husky, you most likely do not to be another one of the crowd and want a ride.

And often you can get one at a fair price as not to mention some of the discounts and promotions going on right Our experience with the bikes on a level has been good, seals notwithstanding, and the two-… is a design. So no, it is not a KTM or a Honda, but you didn’t it to be one of those in the first place.So now you

If you’re a Husky owner for affirmation, you already know a lot of stuff, likely have it or dialed the bike to your and are completely happy (tell us how you did it at Or you own something else and want to see the Husky ranks according to you know about your (we won’t hear from

But we are lucky that there are of all different flavors-a theme of issue, you might have us, if we always blew Husky smoke all over the place to everyone happy, we would not be bikes even as close to as as this WR300. Competition is and Husqvarna is hanging in there.

Jump MonkeyThe WR300 had a deliberate hit that came on and pulled hard. I would’ve the motor to be a bit more “luggable” in it was hard to ride off the pipe the hard hit trying to steal the [Ed note: ridden before change]. In terms of gearing, the was in between first and second on trails, though where I carry more speed I a little more comfortable.

The felt like it was “more than valving” and had a somewhat edge to it that had the rebound slightly abrupt but would blow through on super-hard The ergonomics of this bike some getting used to, I liked the narrow feeling of the bar the rest of the machine, to an extent). The needs to be enlarged to twice its

The clutch pull was slightly and the brakes were weak at (much of which could be to the excess of fork oil on the front and I wasn’t super stoked the huge amount of vibration from the bike. Given more time to adapt, a tuning on the suspension, a little TLC to the and maybe some gearing I could definitely get this to a more race-ready point. Smith
