This is the bike Husky should build No need to retool and build a 200 As you can see in the Video the 165 can run with a open bikes in the open and pass the 300 2 strokes in the ruff. The motor is just perfect, you can lug it and it wil NEVER stall then just turn the throdel no cluch action needed and it will pull.As a over bore it will still rew if needed and scream in the open.Plus it is so light, perfect bike be in the woods or the desert I like it better then my Husky 300 now

The truth is that is the stock carb as delivered from Husky .It was a 125 before we did the 165 .I did not touch the carb I just installed the 165 and it ran fine.Walt even rode it I have now rode the bike from sea level to about 4,000 no changes. It will lug .people will not beleive me until they watch the video.
Stock CR electronics 14 tooth front 52 rear still a 19 inch tire Make your bike a 165 install the fmf sx pipe and go have fun
Best part is 202 pounds and power to run in the open class

The husky 125 bottom end is very robust. I have close to 100 hours of 165 time split between the old heavy Mahle piston and the new Wossner piston. Bottom end is still tight. I had ~80 hours of 144 use before that. I split the cases ~25 hours ago to install a true WR tranny and replaced the mains at that time just because I was in there. No need as the old ones were in virtually new condition(pulled them apart and no discernible wear). It also speaks volumes for Amsoil Dominator/Interceptor 2T oil mix. I wouldn't be afraid to put the new Wossner 165 kit on your bottom end. 1) Lower revs will actually extend life. 2) Very little weight difference between the two. Just make sure everything feels tight and smooth as silk when you pull it down. No rod end play and no notchyness in any of the bearings. No shaft end play at either end. I would be more worried about your main seals getting weak than the bearings and you can replace those without splitting the cases. JMO

This one has a FMF fatty for a KTM 200SX and runs real hard bottom to top on pump gas.
This one has a PC KTM200 pipe on it and is softer on the bottom and more on top which the owner prefers.
