General Discussion / Re: Review: Rekluse Torque Clutch Pack--21' 300 SE-F
« Last post by Evh1 on May 08, 2021, 07:31:22 PM »
I just received a new Rekluse clutch pack from the backordered last order. They sent a new slave cylinder with the clutch, as well as a new Rekluse clutch cover-gnarly...so that tells me they are thinking that cylinder the fix for this problem in this thread. I'm on a 2020 300 Factory and will report back when I get he unit installed. BTW, I run Rekluses on all my bikes...ktm790R, Husky 501S, Husky 300FE. Not having to think or worry about clutch operation just frees me to pick lines or brake points etc. No arm/finger pump and I'm just riding better with them. Love them...

I have always just removed those things as I find no need for them.  I do use hand guards so maybe that keeps my levers clean.  They usually don't fit very well with my ARC levers anyway.  I wouldn't waste my time with them, but that's me

JL4049 said it exactly correct.
I would change to softer rear spring

No Problem, Sorry if I've confused you even more lol. The 70mm is the difference between the static and race sag (30mm static - 100mm race). Ideally your race sag should be ~ 1/3 of total travel. Don't stress too much if you are a few mm off either way. Near enough really is good enough unless you are riding fast and at the top of the game. I prefer my bike to be sprung slightly softer (static sag 20-25mm, race sag 100-110) as I can back the rebound damping off a bit which makes it easier to transfer weight when riding over obstacles and it soaks up small rocks better (although it can get a little skittish at high speeds) If I'm on a track or a ride that's mostly high speed fire trails I just wind 3 or 4 more clicks of both compression and rebound in the forks with half a turn more high speed compression and 3 more clicks of rebound in the shock (low speed compression I leave where it is). That's what works for me with the KYB suspension.

Oh ok now I get the 70mm haha. Weíll Iím gonna give this a try and see how it goes this weekend play with the suspension On a local single track and feel what it does. Thanks for the input Iím hoping to get the suspension to work how I want it to work! Iím not a pro rider far from so I wonít need everything out of it but I would love to find the sweet spot for it!

General Discussion / Re: 2021 300 SE Factory - Getting brand new bike jetted
« Last post by KTRacer14 on May 04, 2021, 03:46:41 PM »
KTRacer14 good info. what kind of a SC2 setup do you have? A friend of mine has a 38 installed (not a sherco, an other popular brand). He is kinda happy, but commented that he should have bought a 36.
I am considering of getting one but the price is an important factor.
cheers, erdat

erdat,

I went with the Mfgs (Technology Elevated) recommendation.  For the Sherco 300 2T, that is 36mm.  I think they also recommend 36mm for other 250-300cc 2Ts. 

So far it runs great.  I am about 12 clicks leaner than the baseline they set the carb at.  I would say that initial throttle response is about 90% as good as a well jetted carb set up.  It is good...but not quite perfect.  Throttle feel/control (holding traction, lugging, etc) feels better than a std carb.  Mid to top end power feels the same.  Fuel mileage is noticeably better.  500'-5,500' elevation....no change in how it runs, which was the whole reason I decided to go with the SC.  That to me is worth a lot.  Spooge is reduced to about 20% of what it was with a carb.

One thing I have found is the bike idle RPM changes quite a bit as the bike warms and get hot.  If the idle is perfect 5 minutes into a ride...it will be 300 RPM higher 10 minutes later.

Another weird nuance is if you lay the bike down to the left, when you get the bike back up and re-start...it is really rich and takes a bit to get it cleaned out again.

It was quite a bit of work modifying the air boot to fit for proper installation.  I did a lot of careful grinding to get the shape right, and allow for the compensation port to be properly exposed.  They have a good video showing how to do this.

So far, I give the SC2 a 9/10 rating.

I get mine from dirt bike outlet, in Roanoke, VA.

I typically donít have to wait on backorders.

Joe stocks that which we most often need  ;)

It means your spring rate is a bit high.
What you are looking for is an additional 70mm (plus or minus) sag with your weight added to the bike (from static sag). You only have 50mm. If you up the preload to get the static sag correct, then you'll likely only have 75mm (again, give or take) race sag. If you put springs in with a lower rate, you'll be able to preload it to get the sag correct and have the race sag where you want it. If your suspension is very harsh and you have to dial in heaps of rebound, this is probably the main reason. Putting the correct rate springs in is probably the best thing you can do for any suspension. Don't worry about changing valving until you've got the correct springs and had some time to dial in the damping.

Thanks for the info! I called my sherco dealer and he said the static sag for a 2t from is ok 48 mm he followed lessons at reiger suspension so I donít really know what to do now

Edit: I was talking about the rear shock now the sag of it not the front forks donít know if we were on the same page because Iím a bit confused about the 70mm
