    Sherco forks

    I have a Sherco 125 (2015). Noticed, when draining the fork oil, that the screws are different lengths but the parts diagram shows them as being the same part. Any thoughts why mine are different lengths. Also what's the trick to tightening the screw at the bottom of the forks. Thanks.

    Convert a beta 125 to a 200 or 250

    Just wondered how easy it is to convert a 2017 or 2018 125 to a 200 pr 250?

    2017 clutch

    Thanks zippy. Bolt was indeed loose and broken. Now removed. Pretty poor design with a potentially costly repair.

    2017 clutch

    Thanks all for advice. The lever has freeplay so it's not that. If it is the bolt that is loose should I put some threadlock on it.

    Thanks Basil, not sure what bolt you mean - where is it located!

    2017 clutch

    When I pull the clutch lever it seems to feel solid after just pulling it in halfway. Sometimes it will release and operate as it should but then after pulling the lever a few more times it will feel solid again causing the clutch to drag. Does anybody know what this is?

    Sherco Engine Torque Values Quick Reference

    I tightened the clutch basket nut on a Sherco 125 (2015) to 60 n/m as suggested and ended up crushing the needle bearing.

    Sherco clutch

    Thanks for all the replies. I removed and turned the push rod and that seems to have made a difference. I can now pull the clutch lever without it going solid. I've now noticed that tightening the clutch centre nut to 60 n/m distorts the thrust bearing so need to get a new one - its 6n/m.

    Sherco clutch

    Removed the clutch to fit a new gear shift spring on a 2015 125. I fitted in everything back together (I think in the right order) and now the clutch does not work properly (it was working ok prior to this. When I pull in the clutch lever there is very little movement and it seems to go solid and does not release the clutch. Any advice appreciated.

    Gas Gas 250 losing power

    My son bought a new 2017 250 txt pro. It starts ok but when he is riding it it seems to lose power and at times backfires. The problem seems to be when the engine is warm. The plug looks ok and we stripped and cleaned the carb. One thing we noticed was some melting to the ht lead (it looks like it was sitting against the exhaust). We taped over with electricians tape. Any thoughts.

    Clutch centre nut

    Does anybody know the torque setting for the large nut on a Sherco 125 (2015) clutch assembly. Also what is the torque setting for the six small bolts that hold the clutch pressure plate in place? The bolts which have the springs fitted over them.
