    Anyone own a sherco?

    I own a 2015 450 factory and love it. They are a quality bike and worth looking at. Great handling and light.

    Cam chain guide mistake

    Thanks for reply, I've taken head back off and sorted out the guide, I am a little worried about re using the head gasket, All my mates are saying don't reuse. Just don't want to pull it down again if it leaks. So you think no problem re using. Even though it was fully torqued?

    Cam chain guide mistake

    Hi, I was putting the head back on and was having trouble getting it on, so stupidly decided to take out the chain guide that slips in and out. Now I have the head torqued down. I thought I could just feed the guide down once head is on but is had 2 little locator bits stopping it. Any ideas? Force is down? If I have to take head back off can I reuse head gasket? Thanks

    Smallest shim size

    My 05 "E" has 11,000km and the intakes valves are wearing very quickly. I have the hotcams shim kit. I'm about half way through the shim range at the moment, which is the minimum on the chart in the manual. My question is can I go all the way down to a 1.20 shim before re valving or will it do more damage to go so low?

    broken con rod

    it was under de-cel at the time of break, it does get worked hard and revved hard, but no more than everyones else who rides hard i guess. just makes me worry about mine now cause we have similar riding styles. not sure if we rebuild or just change out bottom end, there will be allot of metal and bits in there now, it made a big hole behind the crank area, so not to keen on rebuild.
