General Discussion / Front Rotor Crossover 2022 250/300 SE
« on: December 10, 2021, 05:16:15 AM »
Anyone know of any front or rear rotor crossovers or did Sherco make up their own hubs?
I have found various part cross-reference lists here and there bit is there one that is maintained and more complete?

Trying to put together my spare parts to keep on hand.

Useful site, I had found some older service manuals but not for the newer bikes.

Sherco Tech / 2022 250 SE- How to wake up the ECU??
« on: November 21, 2021, 05:38:31 AM »
Unable to Bump Start my 2022 250 SE. Coming off 17 years of various KTM 200's which bump start very easy I was puzzled at first. Rolling down hill in any gear and traction it simply would not start. I finally figured out that the ECU is not alive until you hit the button. With the location of the button and when the clutch is slightly dragging this is not easy to do. Also don't really want an attempt nudge of the starter when tranny/clutch is trying to spin the gears, probably not good to engage a starter even momentarily against turning stuff inside. Often you need to roll in neutral to get some speed then catch second before planting azz onto seat with throttle blip for a moment of traction. Attempting to co-ordinate all that whilst sliding down a hill and attempting to blip the starter switch is cumbersome at best. Maybe I am just being picky and or a starter button relocation to left bar is in order but I find it easier to sometimes just bump start, for instance I partially engage clutch and rear brake to help keep rear wheel spinning at set speed with varying traction. If you catch too little traction or bump brake too hard may stall, just pull clutch in and bump to restart.  Regardless if one were to have a failed starter, weak battery etc. a simple (just like all our old school bikes) bump start would be best.

OK reasons aside, how do I wake up the ECU for a set period of time? With a wiring diagram and or theory of ops could the ECU be woke long enough to bump start. Is the ECU woke up by 12v when the start button is hit AND the engine starts in X seconds, how does it determine when to shut off?   Need to know more about how the system operates. I suspect if you woke up the ECU the fan (if called for) would run. I think the BEST solution would be to find a way to wake the ECU when front wheel motion is detected by trip computer system. Many other methods would work as well and there could be options but first I need to know how to wake it up and how it determines when to shut itself down.

Wondering how the setup varies from some of the KTM setups, my last KTM was E-start and Kickstart. You did NOT have to do anything to wake the ECU or whatever. just kick it.

General Discussion / Knock off rear rotor guard- low price
« on: November 21, 2021, 03:19:40 AM »
Found this on Flea Bay-
https://www.ebay.com/itm/234174313987?fits=Make%3ASherco&hash=item3685e07603:g:hjoAAOSwEhhg0C0J
It does fit the 2022 250 SE
Also if you are coming off a KTM you can use your old rotor guard but you have to mill the mounting surface to the same thickness. Not a big deal if you have access to that type of tool.

General Discussion / Shift Lever Cross Reference?
« on: November 04, 2021, 06:36:25 AM »
Has anyone looked to see if any other shift levers beside the Sherco PN fit the splines and is close to being close? The reason I am asking is I am looking for a slightly shorter (tip closer to footpeg) shift lever. I have not found anything for Sherco.

I have this brake tip moved over from my KTM to the Sherco.

I love this tip. Moves it back a good way and easy to reach while on the balls of your feet.

General Discussion / Steering Damper on KYB equiped bikes
« on: November 01, 2021, 04:05:50 AM »
Coming of various KTM 200' from 2003 forward with varying degrees of re-valved forks etc. On most of these, I have used my trusty Scotts over bar steering damper. On the KTM 200's it really helped.

It has been said they are a band-aid for poor setup but if suspension was good it only may have acted as an improvement or safety factor for unexpected loose rock or clipping a tree. Aside from the benefits the damper may provide when clipping a tree slightly does a stock valvied KYB equipped 250 SE have a need for a damper or would I just be moving over un-needed weight?

General Discussion / 2022 250 Lights Removal
« on: November 01, 2021, 03:52:01 AM »
Having trouble finding a replacement front number plate that does not have the cutout for the headlight.  Would like to remove taillight as well and use a fender that does not incorporate the extra plastic liner for the taillight. I don't really need the lights and given time they will just get broken anyway.
What model/year would I look for that will bolt right up without a lot of fuss?
Links if anyone has done this?

General Discussion / Pipe Guard and Cage Anyone tried one of these?
« on: October 29, 2021, 11:56:30 AM »
Poking around looking for pipe guards and link guard and came across this-
https://www.ebay.com/itm/313522322116?hash=item48ff62fac4:g:Sq8AAOSwXmtglnfe
and from same vendor a more open design but different
https://www.ebay.com/itm/313522359487?hash=item48ff638cbf:g:6gkAAOSw4XRgFXHL

I believe both would protect the pipe and the weight difference is small 2.85 vs 2.65. It looks to me that the first one constructed of Al would collect mud like a dump truck.  Bent bar design may allow mod to pass thru but would likely collect more on the engine and frame? Has anyone tried either of these or is this just overkill for rocky terrain with a lot of logs and crossings?  New pipes are expensive, sending them out is not a whole lot cheaper, and blowing them out does not do much for the inevitable kinks that wear their way in.

I have "worn out" many P3 pipe guards on my KTM 200's, perhaps pipe is a bit more exposed or I am just hard on stuff and expect too much.

General Discussion / Converting 2ST 300 to 250 - Parts required?
« on: March 18, 2021, 02:54:49 AM »
If one were to purchase a 2ST 250 or 300 and later decided to go the other route what pieces are needed to convert one engine to the other? Is it cylinder and piston only or head and crank involved? What about electronics?

Strongly considering a 300 but if I went that route would like to be able to switch out to a 250 if desired. I suspect I would not have a lot of trouble selling the 300 components but would have a hard time finding many 300 hundred owners wanting to go down to the 250.

Any differences in the cylinder and or other parts between the 250 or 300 between model years?

Anyone have an idea of the ratio of 300 to 250 2ST sold?
