Possible bad casting on swing arm
« on: November 03, 2021, 03:18:05 PM »
I noticed some bad casting on my 2021 sef 450 factory when I was doing my first tire change. Canít even see the alignment marks. Anybody else seen this?

Yes see this other recent post: https://shercoforum.com/index.php?topic=3296.msg29462#msg29462

Thankfully mine doesn't have this - it was something I specifically checked out before writing the check

YOu can barely make out my alignment marks.  A black sharpie fixed that.

My '19 300 was like that when I got it. I used a chainsaw file to notch them out, then the sharpie trick.

I think those notches are useless anyway. Just use the caliber or other (measurement) device to get wheel aligned correctly.

No dude, that's not right.
All 3 of mine has been well made, I'd talk to your dealer about a warranty claim
