Review of the 400 WR submitted on 2007-05-20.
I´ve owned two of these bikes, an 86 and 87 (the one pictured is a 1987). Husqvarna bikes have two things going for them; 1, excellent european engineering, the fit and finish and ease of maintanace is wonderful. and 2, excellent trail manners. both the 86 and 87 weigh in at about 240 lbs. and the engines produce between 40 and 50 horsepower. This power to weight ratio means they can challenge any 500 from japan. My 1987 400WR was radar clocked at 83 mph...scary on knobby tires. Anyone looking to buy one of these is probably worried about getting parts. This is why: In 1987, the Cagiva group bought out Husqvarna and moved the factory to Italy. after this, no spare parts were made for any of the prior 87´ models out of Sweden and NOS parts are getting scarce. However, you will have no problem finding parts on the internet, especially ebay. As well, Husky used a lot of sourced out manufacturers for many of its components like Brembo, EBC, Mikuni, Mahle(engine internals), Ohlins, etc and brakes, clutch parts, fork seals etc. can be found easily from aftermarket suppliers.
Happy riding. Matt.
