New old Sherco!

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I introduced myself over in the Introductions forum but just thought I'd say hi here as well. I picked up a 2000 Sherco 290 yesterday evening for a very fair price and I'm looking to address a possible air leak. You can find some details and pictures/video in this thread if you are so inclined!

Just got my 2.9! Love it so far. Engine seems solid and very clean. Currently waiting on rear wheel bearings to arrive in the mail, spent $10 on ebay for some nice SKF contact seal bearings. Those will get cleaned out and waterproof grease added back in. My fork oil seals seem good enough, not perfect so I spent another $8 on chinese dust seals to keep dirt out. I know other riders have issues with cheap oil seals on their forks so I'll spring the $60 for that next year. The dust seals had Paioli or Marzocchi  on them and looked original from Y2K. Suuuuper dry rotted and cracked. Could probably get the ink cartridge from a cheap pen through the cracks.
