Just heard that the 2019 2strokes are having very short screws there. With longer ones damages like this are less likely...

Sherco Tech / Re: weight of 300sef 2018

Pumpkins became quite light over the years. When weight is compared, pleas use same amount of gas, and same tires, moose or tubes. There's a lot of misleading stuff in tests.

More important than the actual weight is, how the bike feels like when you ride it. The Sherco constantly envites you to play and feels lighter than all other comparable 4strokes around, so forget about kilograms and ounzes an get riding/testing it.

As far as I can remember, it was already listed that way last year. These tiny italians just can't believe that Super Mino (the Nutella Guy) is so damned fast on a tiny 300, haha

Did anyone try this one?

Seems pretty much the same as the TM Design stuff without the seams that the AXP have. It has also the protection of the linkage...

Check the main switch of your bike or just throw it away and exhange it

There a some early sections in the Erzberg race where the riders including the top guys are pulled up by winches. Is it a problem to have winches, ropes or what ever to get down these vertical rocks? We are speaking of maybe 1 or 2 sections in a day. Is it making it less extreme? I think no, but there would be more top guys in the race showing us a great competition. In the end we're talking of extreme or hard enduro RIDING and not bike throwing...

Jonny is out now because he hurt his hand yesterday on the Holy Rock, a section where the top riders had to go down a rock on their arses, looking like beginners.

There's a video from a guy who is saying something like, Jonny goes down... What an idiot, he should have helped the riders to get down with a rope...

8 Riders in hospital in Gold class!?

David Knight just says: If that's extreme enduro, they can keep it. So I don't want to do it⁠⁠⁠⁠.
Further on he says, there were down hills where you need a rope to get down alone, but they had to carry their bikes...

He's damn right. Sections should be difficult but not dangerous.

I did the silver class 3 years ago an stopped after day one, where I ran into 20 riders on the track up in the mountains before a vertical down hill. We decided to let the bikes down by a rope one by one. It was just crazy. And than a track manager on a KTM FreeRide came and asked what we were doing. We told him it's crazy, it might be okay for 15 gold riders to get down but after that, the plant cover on the rocks is gone and it's just dangerous. He wanted to be cool and took a bike from us and tried to get down without a rope and nearly got totally fucked up. After that he silently got away with his FreeRide because he said he had a plane to catch!? After that I decided to stop though some section were really nice.

Anyway, it seems theat there is a competition among organizers of hard/extreme enduro races for the hardest race or it's just RedBull asking for more and more spectacular shit, who knows. Don't forget, the majority of us is just doing Enduro as a hobby...

Is it a smoker or a thumper?

This is the switch that the Sherco's should come with. Here I am using it as the on/off switch / kill switch. Its super slim. I will install a push button on/off switch on the headlight strap mount and eliminate the rocker switch on the bar. I have also used this switch as a combination start switch and the mode switch. This way you can run a regular domino throttle assembly

Are You having a 2 or a 4 stroke? What model of domino throttle assembly are You using? Did you have to fiddle it to the bike or is it just plug and play (and not pray)...


General Discussion / Re: Matts Enduro GP Bike 2017

Heard he has head work done to from a shop in Sydney.

Maybe for races in Australia. In the World Championship the bike is prepped by the former Husqvarna Factory team from Fabrizio Azzalin. After the (bike) idiots of BMW donated Husqvarna to KTM, Azza became Sherco importer (enduro) for Italy and a second factory team for Sherco. They know what to do, to give Matt a good bike to win. Matt was already junior world champion with that team. And after the time with the Farioli team, he's probably not only happy because he's now able to eat as much Nutella as he wants, haha
I still have a former factory bike from them, a 2012 Husky 310 TE. Really nice how the optimize the bike in little details. The two mechanics Mauro and Thomas are magicians...

With my 2017 factory and the new WP Explore fork, the old adapter is NOT fitting (whether it was for the Kawa or the Honda...).

Anyone knows, which is the right one for the new factory babes?
