Hey I thought this forum was gone... glad to see it back :).
Somebody is interested in my X-Ride but I'm a bit torn if I should sell it as there isn't anything else like it... but with less than 600 km on it in 5 years I am obviously not worthy of keeping it (just always go to the trials bike when I have time to ride)

Ended up deciding to keep it - Really have to make more time for riding it this year (once things warm up a bit)!

Speedo on my xride has died, has anyone replaced theirs with an aftermarket option?

I replaced mine with a Trail Tech Endurance 2. Works fine, though I can't remember which sender of theirs I used. Contact tech support at Trail Tech and they can help you find the correct unit.

Recently got a 2nd hand x-ride.  Not been able to ride it due to the lockdown.
Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the x-ride?  Previous owner has made a wiring few mods that I'd like to tidy up.

Found this on trials central if anyone else is looking.  Traced/belled a few wires out.  This looks to be how the x-ride is wired.  Some of the wire colours are different though.  Might be useful for others.

Just bought brand new 2021 xride 290....(2018 leftover from France, import in Canada as 2021 from Sherco Canada) this bike is so easy to ride, i have smile all the time...I came from 2005 kdx 220 gear for going slow as possible....but not enough for my taste. I try ktm freeride 250R, beta xtrainer, but what chance I have to get this bike before gone. My bike came with keihin 28mm, 9 T front sprocket. I read all this post twice before making my choice, thanks all for this nice tread...REALLY good info.

Funny this gets bumped back up.  Where can I get cylinder gaskets here in the US?

Got a really wired noise starting tonight after riding for about 20 minutes.  Just idling at the base of a climb and got a bad knocking, like a rock in the skid plate.  Shut it off and started back up and still making a racket.  It's louder when the cutch is in and when you release and load the engine it gets let noisy but still slightly there. 

Got back to the shop and buddies swore it sounded like the bottom end went so pulled the head and nothing seem super loose and all pretty normal.

Did have a wired issue with the clutch not really working and we bleed the master and still wasn't working earlier in the day.  Laid it over on it's side and decided to pull the slave cylinder cover, I cracked the upper bolt and there was a slight pop and the clutch started working again.   Not idea if they are related or not.
