Thanks Howard,

This confirms that the previous reeds must have been installed correctly. But one reed must have been worn. Due the fact it did have a gap.


Cheers.

Reeds, wrong or right?

Hi, Can anyone give me a run down on the right way to install the fuel in-take reeds? It looked stright forward as there was a cut (marker) in corner of both the reeds and the cuved metal reed stops. This left me with both reeds having a 2-3mm gap. But something I saw on the web today indicates that...

Hi Montyman, Thanks for the run down on the "Super Fuels". You've probably saved me a ton of work (and money :wink: ). The knock is really bad on this new Sherco 290 of mine. And the kick-back can leave me with a sore foot (or two!). I've gota do something with that timing. Must meet up with you guy...

The art of stationary balancing

Hello everyone, I have the honour of making the first post in this new “Section” (excuse the pun!) and I’m going to make it a question on the art of stationary balancing. I’m looking for some serious tips on how to develop this skill on a slab of concrete at normal tyre pressures. Yes, I’ve read all...

Thanks Howard, Thanks Keith - I appreciate your help. I still haven't seem it leaking a second time, but it is a little damp on that one leg. For future reference, is it best to change the seals as a pair (at the same time) or just wait for each seal to leak before changing that one? Cheers. Neo

Thanks Howard, My bike is an 2002 Sherco 290. I can't see any scratches on the forks but for future reference what grade of emery should I use? Also is it worth having those special coatings done on the fork legs? It’s wired as they are very slightly damp and I’ve only seen oil leak out once, on one...

Best Fork seal tool

Hi, Does anyone know what's the best tool to prize out a fork seal, without scratching the living daylights out of the inside of the fork leg? Also is one fork seal brand the same as the next. Or is there a "best brand". Or is it always best to get the seals from the bike manufacture? Many thanks. Neo
