Sherco 320 power

Hi all, looking to buy a a Sherco 320 but being a novice I've hear the 4t power is an issue. I'm after suggestions to smooth the power, I'm thinking larger rear sprocket, slow twist throttle and maybe exhaust restrictor.

Any suggestions or should I just buy a 250???

Thanks

Re: Monty 247 cylinder removal

Ok tried everything now, absolutely no movement from any head bolt. Tried brass drift, heat, numerous penetration oils, impact driver, rattle gun.

I’m going to outsource the problem.

Re: Monty 247 cylinder removal

It’s killing me this thing, so far I’ve soaked in wd40 for the last 4 days. I’ve got a 7mm hex with breaker bar, no joy, impact driver on 7mm hex, no joy.

Re: Monty 247 cylinder removal

Oh excellent thanks, now I see them and now they appear seized. I can’t budge them for love nor money. I’ve sprayed some wd40 down so might see if this helps.
