    The only other pipe I have belongs to my 86 400WR as a spare . The primary pipe that came with it is a Husky Products pipe made by George Erl and I plan to build with that. The PO was a sheet metal technician and he made a prototype appearing replica of a Dynoport chamber. Looks kinda cobby but true prototype in the 70's were no better.

    If you want I can try to get you cone and header measurements off the good one that I have

    Do you also need the mating kickstart gear since I recall that engages with the clutch gear

    Wow, cool bike. The 1983 Husqvarna WR has to be the prettiest bike ever made. I rode an 87 Husky 430 in Netra Enduros for a few years. Then I got an 07 Husaberg 550. It was just as fun riding the 430. Got way more looks and thumbs up being on the nostalgic bike. This was before the Netra vintage classes came about.

    Thanks, The 83 and 84 250WR's we the bike we all lusted after but couldn't afford. Finding a 250 is pretty rare. The 430 sort of found me so I couldn't resist. These days I prefer to ride old bikes. I race NETRA Vintage on a 83 IT250. The Husky's IT's, KDX's and PE's all have their following.
    There still is brand loyalty out there which is really cool. A few of my buddies are restoring Huskies for next season.
    Not sure if you are into this, but there is a pretty nice 86 WR250 near you. (Charlton City Craigs) The guy wants $900 for it. I texted him and have a few photos. If I didn't swear off LC bikes, i'd grab it.

    It's no wonder I couldn't find the 250. He spelled the name wrong. I saw the 400 in western Mass CL. That went within a couple days. It crossed my mind to grab it. But, I have no where to put any more bikes. Hopefully someone is going to fix it up and take it out.

    Yes it's spelled wrong. One of the NETRA guys grabbed the 400.
