The WR is about the same. I'd definitely get a Yamalink for that one and a shaved seat.
Huh...5'8" with 30" inseam (on a good day). No kouba links (they make the bike handle like crap anyways) or shaved seats here. I also find my 610 to be an exceptional dirt bike with plenty of power...my buddy on his 950A can't even keep my tail light in sight in the dirt, but I admit I can't keep up on the road if he opens it up.

Just sayin

i have the 1" koubalink on my 2010 te250, and to be honest, noticed no difference in handling (but I do ride mostly slower single track, so maybe thats why)...

Eh? 07 te250

what carb comes stock on a 2007 TE250? and where is the best place to get a rebuild kit for that carb? i don't recall the make, but i had snapped a pic and enlarged it, and the letters/numbers on one side are MX37BATE25 i believe. this is for a buddy's bike. i've asked him to check the make but he hasn't done it yet. a google search on MX37BATE25 turns up ZERO. not sure i've seen that before! many thanks in advance.

Hey man I wouldn't normally respond to this since I'm not too familiar with that bike. But since no one else has responded I'll try and help out. I'd try calling Husqvarna's customer service or tech support. Alternatively, a search for a parts catalog or build sheet may also give you what you need. Hope this helps!

Question

After more than a year of riding my bike I discovered something new, woohoo!

Turns out that the standard exhaust has a dB killer that I'd never noticed. So not noticed in fact that I bought a (second hand, mind) Arrow end pipe cos the original was rather choking the bike, or so I felt.

My bike, a 2008 TE250, was the importers demo model and so has the exhaust sensor removed and plugged and runs beautifully with the "fruity" sounding pipe in place. My question is... does the collective think that I'd achieve the same results with the standard exhaust sans insert?

I plan on replacing the Arrow as it weighs a lot less than the Husqvarna version, but I'm curious.

With thanks

-Simon

If you pull the dB killer (insert) out you will have essentially a straight pipe, assuming the cat has already been removed. It will definitely breathe easier, but it will be loud as heck. The Arrow will probably be the same, but with a little weight loss; the stock Husky pipe (also made by Arrow I believe) has a stainless steel inner shell in addition to the aluminum shell; most folks believe the purpose is add some heat protection since there is a hot catalytic converter nearby (until you remove it anyway), but it does add some weight.

I had the same issue with the dB killer on my 2010 muffler (choking), but couldn't stand the noise with the insert removed. I ended up buying a FMF Q4 and am much happier with the tone, which isn't as sharp on the ears, and don't feel any performance loss. Very glad I went that way. The stock and Arrow race mufflers are too loud for trail work IMO.

(edit) - If anyone wants my dB killer or and/or stock muffler (2010 Arrow), PM me

Yep! With the insert removed it's noisier than the Arrow "race" pipe, and heavier so the aluminium Arrow's going back on in the morning.

Cheers

Ahhh, that explains it. Touching the muffler and not getting burned was a pleasant surprise.

I love my 06. Put together a 05 TC and a blown up 06 TE to build it.
I've even been able to get it out the last couple sundays. Cant wait for tomorrow.

Tc250 (300)

Gents, I am learning to ride dirt and sand and singletrack and want someting more forgiving than a 300 XCW (for instance). I have a 690e, and an old /5, so I only need this bike to do trails & woods here at home, and sand in Nevada on a late March trip - doesn't need to be legal. To that end, is a 2008 TC250 (now 300 with the kit installed), with about 100hrs total a good bike for this endeaouver? The price seems right, even after planning on the outlay to add a bigger tank, light and a scotts. What are the major differences between TC and TE for the 2008 vintage? Would a TXC 250 (310 with kit in, and lmost liscence'able) be a better bet, or different at all?

Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

The TC is tuned for motocross work, the motor will hit harder and be less forgiving than than the TE/TXC models. Also the suspension is tuned more towards jumps and racing than trail work, so you might find it a little harsh without some suspension work. Depending on the state, you may or may not be able to plate a TC bike. But if the price is right...

Also the TC has a carb while the TE/TXCs are fuel injected. That seems to be a matter of personal preference, but personally I am done with carbs, and I like being able to "rejet" on the fly with a fuel controller.

Isn't the loom different, too? Might make it more difficult to add lights or I could be talking rubbish.
