  1. CDI replaced under warranty!! The geometry of the Sherco is very different to a KTK/Husky and I find people either like it or hate it when they ride my bike. I personally love it. I dont notice the linkage on the sherco getting caught. I run the AXP extreme bashplate which covers the linkage.
  2. No just the stock standard CDI that comes on the Sherco
  3. Yeah nice Pete!!! ive just picked up my second one after putting 130hrs on the first. Trying the quick turnover thing versus the hang on to them forever which is what ive always done with my bikes. Ive had issues recently with the bike but i could have just been unlucky!!!! I broke a clutch friction plate into 6 pieces which I didnt realise till i took the clutch apart for inspection prior to the kozzi race( clutch was feeling strange) and just this week the Athena CDI stocked working. Not sure you can blame Sherco for either of those though!!!
  4. Definately go the standard!! On a technical detail mx store at the moment only sell the nm21 220 but the nitro chart recommends the nm21 235( slightly bigger) for starcross soft fronts. You can get them from the states.
  5. Awesome, good to hear!!! I tried mine for the first time yesterday so good to hear the hours it’s getting!!
  6. It’s something you need to try for yourself Habs. For me personally I don’t get the dead feel on the back, just feels normal to me. There are many brands and again fitment is key. I’m not running a mousse in the front at the moment but when I have I wasn’t worried about the feel. Again fitment is key!!!!
  7. That looks good crusty!!!! Good to see!!!
  8. Interesting topic as I have been experimenting a bit lately with tubes and mousses. Tubes are simple to use and being able to adjust pressure is awesome!! Unfortunately I have also had some bad luck lately with UHD tubes on rides. I have been running low pressure 6to 8 psi which works great at low speed but I have managed to pinch the tubes in the rear when hitting rocks. Yes higher pressure would fix that in most cases but that’s a pain when the terrain can be so varied and your running low pressure for the grip. I also run the tube inside an old Uhd tube for extra protection and use
  9. 12/10!!! Well done Mark, a true level3+!!! Oh and Cruiser that toy hauler is 12/10 as well!!!
  10. I’m not sure Mick. I think its probably a combination of things but I’m suspecting the linkage and the front forks have a lot to do with it. I very muck like the forks and I guess Sherco have them valved differently to the Ktm as well as coming stock with heavier springs. I always felt like the Ktm rode very high downhill regardless of what rear shock spring I ran and going over the bars was always on the cards especially if rocks or logs were in the way!! Maybe the KTM forks just gave way too easy which makes sense as they would dive under breaking( valving??) ive always thought I could
  11. Gday Jay, I knew you would hit me with the tech questions!!!! Mixing the fuel at 50 : 1 Not too sure on the range as most rides we do are more like 4 to 8 hrs duration but only covering 30 to 50 k, sometimes a lot less. Im running a nedw needle, clip2, 38 pilot and 168 main. During winter the plan is to go to a necw, clip3, 40 pilot and 170 main. The response from the engine is very clean right through the range, its not too zingy down low which is more manageable for hard enduro and its strong. The winter jetting will tone down the response a bit to give that traction w
  12. Thought it was time to pen my thoughts on the 2021 Sherco Racing which is the WP version of the Sherco. I now have 50 hrs on the bike. My 2 previous bikes were a 2019 KTM 300 exc tpi with 400 hrs when sold and prior to that a 2016 Beta 300rr with 315 hrs when sold. So I’m not brand orientated and just looking for what I think is the best bike for me!! So going back to a Sherco is going back to a carb bike. Sherco run the Kehein carb which is pretty easily sorted as far as jetting goes. The beauty of a carb bike is you can jet the bike as crisp or as fat as you like depending on the
  13. Bugger, that would have been an awesome bike to get hold of!!!
  14. I know good ones might be hard to find but a 200exc has been the perfect full size bike for my son. It’s light, has electric start and they have enough torque to lug up decent hills!!! Before the 200 he had a yz125, really nice and lightweight but a real challenge on hills unless your an experienced rider!!. Just my 2 cents and good luck with it!!!
