  1. Michael, Look on the Powerhouse Motorcycles website. I believe the factory 2017 models may have had a bladder fork? The parts list shows the plastics, but i don't know if you could see the mounting bolt holes well enough to be sure it would fit. Some forks may have a Sherco specific bottom axle mount and tube.

    Thanks Cluffie. Jetting is a bit of a black science to me. There is a lot to learn, and as you say, it seems every case is different in a number of ways.

    Cluffie. I don't want to hijack this thread, but if the above occurs, I assume it is an indication of a lean condition. What would you normally do to rectify this? Would you mainly be looking to richen the mixture via the air screw and/or the pilot jet?

    Thanks to Andy for putting this ride on, and for the post ride eats. Also thanks to Bear for sweeping and eating all the dust. It was drier out there than I expected. Good to meet new riderz as well. I swapped Shercos with Geoffro for a little while. I had not ridden a 300 4 banger for a while, and soon felt at home on it. I had forgotten how good they are to ride. For what I normally do they are nearly as good as the two stroke. Definitely better than my 450 in the tighter stuff. The 2 stroke is just more fun to ride though. When we left the group for a while, we did some different tracks that weren't in the original ride description. Here is a pic of Scott waiting for the "salmon coloured kettle" to stop boiling.
  5. Good to hear you got the clutch sorted as well, Richard. I had been wondering about the electric start issue as well. Could it be the auto-decompressor not activating correctly when the motor is hot? I was not sure if it actually had one? I saw on the Powerhouse web site, when I was checking for some Sherco consumables, that they have the SWM parts online with breakups and pricing. There is a reasonable chance the motor is the same as yours. Paul at Powerhouse would probably know. In the attached (hope it copies and pastes OK!), parts 14 to 17 would probably be the auto-decompressor. It may just need adjustment? Others would know more about this than me.

  6. Pete, I agree about the compression lock up. But in this case the starter motor just free wheeled. It did not engage the motor. I expect there is some sort of bendix to engage the drive, this just did not happen. This would generally indicate low battery output to the starter motor? The compression lock was only evident when he tried to kick start.
  7. By what I heard when this happened, I would start with the battery. Check the battery voltage, while stationary, then when it is cranking over. I expect it is getting too low to engage the starter.
  8. The Airoh was my other choice. Thanks for the tip about AMX.
  9. I tied one on. It fitted well. Just need to justify the purchase of this over some of the more popular helmets.
  10. How are these going now they have been used for a while? Any further updates? I have been looking for a new helmet and the ventilation aspect of these seems really good.
  11. I have been told they won't be all that much cheaper than the Sherco 250/300 2 strokes

    Matt, There was a group of riders there when we got there. Maybe 5 or 6 in the group. Was probably them? It would have been good to catch up with you again.

    Thanks for putting this ride up Pepperjack. I had a ball chasing you and BearMX. Great to spend the day with you both. That big KTM is some machine!!
  15. In 11 years of having Sherco's this is probably the first time I have had aftermarket parts in the engine. Yes, lesson learned. Mind you, there is often not an aftermarket option for these.
