JonM Posted May 4, 2021 Report Share Posted May 4, 2021 Last week I bought a 2013 Sherco ST300 from a dealer. It was over the phone and the bike was delivered on Friday. Yesterday I loaded up and went to my local trials centre, paid my fee... and it didn't go well. Initially the clutch dragged so much that putting it into gear caused an immediate stall, and after 10mins it stopped running- with all the signs of fuel starvation. Tank had fuel, no pipes/hoses obviously pinched. If I'd owned it for months or years I'd be cleaning out the carb, checking hoses for splits, changing the plug + doing whatever it took... But it was literally my first time on the bike. It could be clogged filter, kinked/crimped line, dirt in the carb, faulty pump, leak around the inlet manifold, crank seals etc etc... I've told the dealer I don't want it - it isn't rideable. Distance Selling law says I can refuse it within 14 days even if I'd just changed my mind, let alone not fit for purpose nor sold as described. I'm sure the dealer hasn't intentionally sold me a pup so I'm not angry with them (hence not naming them) but my view is that I shouldn't be stuck with this. What would you all do?
