2020 300 SEF Factory myself.  First, put a zip tie on your fork leg if you already haven't to see how much travel you are leaving on the table when you ride.  Most rides I have an inch left...for that big hole that I may hit:) Take black sharpie and color the shock shaft bottom up maybe .5" and see what's left after a ride.  Adjust compression damping to utilize more or less.  Quick rebound settings:  Front rebound when you push down hard and release should not oscillate more than once to your sag point.  Rear, ride off something tall with an edge while seated and if you get bucked up off seat slow the rebound.   

My dry body weight is 157lbs.  So, for me it was either turn every clicker all the way out or remove oil.  I removed 20cc of oil from each leg and kept clickers close to normal settings--which is about midway. 

Fork Height: Depending on how fast you ride and how quick you want your steering vs. how much stability you want ie. tight woods speeds = quicker steering and open desert speeds = more stability; raise and lower your forks for effect.  I ride tight woods and sand so I have my forks just past flush to rake out the front for stability in the sand, but since the Sherco's head angle is already steep it still steers faster than my KTM 2 stroke.  When I get on terra firma I raise the forks up to second line from top cap. 

FYI, I spent almost $2K additional on my WP suspension using Kreft Moto's internals on my KTM and it blew my mind how good the air fork can be.  And still, its not as good as the stock KYB on Sherco!

I've check another friend's 250F model year 2020 today. That one was also low. Seems that the new one's have a longer clutch hose. i too think that it is wrongly routed. Should come either from the right side, seems that there is enough slack, or should come over the radiator hose.

A stock chain is long enough for a 13 x 50 .Wheel all the way forward and turn chain adjusters around and you will have ample adjustment.

Yessir, that's what I ended up doing. I like the gearing now much better.

Thanks for all of the replies.

I only get about 50miles before the fuel light comes on.
They are heavy on fuel.
Good luck

Classifieds / WTB - Front Wheel Spacers For KTM Wheel On A 2020 SEF 300
« Last post by Carl828 on November 27, 2020, 05:30:18 PM »
In May I picked up a 2020 SEF 300 Factory which I love. After a few rides I picked up front flat and decided to change to the same tires I have on my 2016 Husky TE250 so I could directly compare the two bikes better. I run Tubliss on the TE but wanted to try a set of Nitro Mousse's.

I went standard mousse on the front and a soft on the rear. I've been waiting for it to break in and so far I've got 20 hours on it. I just cannot get comfortable with the front. I can't really explain it but I'm instantly more comfortable and quicker when I jump back on the Husky. Before the mousse the SEF felt great.

I'd like to eliminate variables and try the front wheel off my Husky on my Sherco to make sure the problem is where I suspect it is.

Anybody have a set they don't want or a lead on some? I'd get both front/rear if the seller wanted to sell both as a set.

Thanks,
Carl

I'm taking back to the dealer for diagnostics.  Oil is contaminated with excess fuel, backfires/flames out too often, and has a very bad stumble when I snap throttle from idle to WOT with no load.  Oil level keeps rising.  Fuel consumption is far too much as well.  18 miles today and used nearly a 1/4 tank.
