Husqvarna WR360 Scrapheap Challenge

Winner of the ugly bike award goes to...

Apparently these things hammer. It feels pretty light just getting it on and off the ute. I've been looking for a cafe racer or shed pig for a while so when this popped up I couldn't say no. It takes me right back to being a kid with a dunger bike and keeping it running with coat hangers and whatever petrol we could nick.

The 360 needs a magento, kickstarter, chain guide, plastics and sticker kit.





shane@tasmaniacs.com.au if anyone has any parts laying around for one.

Kick starter is the same as 92(?)+ 250, 300 and 360, plus 125s from the early-mid 90s. Shouldn't be too hard to find a decent one.

Plastics will be the real challenge. DC do passable quality 93 style bits, which is probably the best you'll get without making baby Jesus cry.

If it is a scrapper, one could be made quite easy.
It would add to the scrapper character.

Houso

I picked up a kickstart off a houso last night for $20. Good on you, young bogun man.

The magneto he had isn't right - its an SEM off a KTM 360.

The flywheel has thrown the magnets - JDK have a full set-up and want $550. Steve that was advertising parts on here wants $250 or there are a few on fleabay around the $100 mark.

Just not sure what the difference is between the Kokusan FP5238 flywheel (WR/WXE/WXC 250-360) and the rest of the Kokusan flywheels. I say if the shaft fits how different can it be? A magnet is a magnet.

Location of the magnets relative to the keyway, and polarity of the magnets can change.

If the magnets are in the wrong spot, you should not have any dramas in removing the woodruff key and timing it manually (using a timing light). The key does nothing but locate the FW during assembly, so it's absence is not a problem.

I'm less sure about the polarity. I had an '84 YZ125 that ran backwards because it had a 79 model flywheel on it. It was NOT a timing issue. The only thing I found to explain it was the polarity was backward. I don't know if running backwards is an inevitable outcome.

I'm not about to run one without a key (which I have to make anyway). a quick image search shows me that a lot of them look to be of a similar diameter.

I could get a complete stator unit off a similar later model 2 banger and wire it up. What could go wrong? I cant find any examples of anyone else doing this - that rings alarm bells.

Latest research reveals that almost any Husky WR ignition will fit. That broadens the search a bit!
