  1. Front brake wont lock on 2018 Sherco factory 300

    they do work! it brakes but wont really lock and requires a lot of pressure to do stopies and etc... when you doing small rear wheel hops it just sucks cuz it wont lock the front wheel to make the rear alive. (it seems to have a bit of excessive travel on the lever as well. the lever is away far out just in order to have enough braking to ride (but no locking)

    OK! if was you, which one would you replace first?? I m ready. I will put the new MC rebuild kit and see if it works. could it still be the MC even if the rebuild kit doesnt fix it? Thanks

  5. Front brake wont lock on 2018 Sherco factory 300

    I bought the bike in January. was perfect until i decided to pull the brakes apart for cleaning maintenance!! big mistake. from now on if it s not broken, I m not fixing!

    I cleaned the rotor with brake cleaner before putting new pads and last change I did as a set! They feel firm but wont lock in the end unless you press it so tight is not even real and there is no bite!! you know when you tap the brakes while riding and your front forks quickly compress? cant do it

    cars racing???
  8. I have been so frustrated to the point that I bought a new bike!! lol, at least that was the excuse to buy a 300RR. back to the subject: I have changed brake rotors twice, changed pads twice and now just ordered a master cylinder rebuild kit!! what is going on?? the bike will brake but wont lock the wheels. If i m riding on grass and just press the brakes really hard front wheel was suppose to lock (it does on other bikes) but not on this one. I was told there was air in the line and bled it twice (unless i did it wrong) still not working. any suggestions?? i already tried water quenching, tap on line and flick the lever to release air at the top with cap open and still no locking! I need advise please... if the master cylinder kit wont work should I buy a new brake line or new caliper first??? Thanks all

  12. Taming a 300??

    As a Physical Therapist, I work with rehabilitation and often people with poor balance! all balance exercises are developed in a way that you must challenge the body's ability to balance itself in order to force your brain to improve balance reaction. In Trials I take the same approach! Challenge in order to improve! quoting Adam Raga: "the throttle is not very important in trials and if you use a bit more or a bit less than you should most of the time you will still manage the obstacles. The clutch is very important. You must control the clutch precisely and if you mess it up you will dab" Thus, A more sensitive bike will force you to improve your abilities and reaction time to control it! In my mind, and I mean (personal opinion), A forgiving bike might get you through the course easier, but How much is it teaching you to be a good rider???
  13. Taming a 300??

    I see around the internet few guys that have purchased 300 factory bikes and they choose to go with a slow throttle (black tube). some advise extra teeth on rear sprocket and also extra weight on the flywheel. back here I m thinking: whats the point of getting a powerful bike and dialing down the power? isn't that better just buy a 125cc and have significant less weight? or a 250? I just made the switch from 250 to 300 this season and although I haven't had the chance to ride much because of weather, I immediately noticed the extra power, which in my case I loved it. makes the wheelies much more controllable and you can rely more on the low end, focusing in the clutch and forgetting a little about throttle. just MO. the question here is: are there advantages in heavier Flywheel, extra sprocket teeth and slow throttle other than making "lack of technique" more forgiving??

    I have identified the Reiger shock. Sherco is using the 2011 Raga model mounted upside down in comparison to the Gas Gas.
  15. Looking for manual/tech info on 2018 Sherco 300 factory

    Does anyone know anything about the "riding modes". supposedly the switch under the tank is to select a riding mode? thats what Stu told me, and I m here dying of curiosity with a foot of snow outside so I cant test it for my self.
