  • Sherco Trials Clutch Specs 1999>2016

    Clutch Specs:
    Fibre plates are 2.73mm when new
    Steel plates are 1.53mm when new
    Clutch pressure plate is 5.30mm from where the friction plate makes contact to the outer edge.
    Clutch hub is 3.00mm from where the friction plate makes contact to the machined outer edge

    2014 Factory > 2016:
    As above, but these used 4 x standard 2.73mm frictions, and 2 x 3.00mm thick racing fibre plates.

    Common Problems:

    • Old oil / Oil type.  This is the first thing to change, the majority of clutch problems are due to the oil type and not been changed recently.
    • The hub can get quite grooved where the steel plates sit causing problems with clutch slipping and sticking.
    • The basket is prone to getting grooves where the friction plates sit, again causing problems with clutch slipping and sticking.
    • Clutch springs can loose their springiness, the free length of the spring from new should be 45mm, if they get below 44mm they will cause slippage in high gears under high load.
      If the spring have shrunk replace the springs http://www.splatshop.co.uk/sherco-clutch-springs.html or we do some washers to put extra tension on the springs http://www.splatshop.co.uk/shim-washer-14x20x1-din-988.html
    • The friction face's on the hub and the pressure plate been out of square, if you have the equipment it might be worth clocking up the friction face and the clamping face to ensure they are parallel to each other, if not you can give the friction faces a quick clean up on the lathe assuming there is enough material left. With these faces being made of aluminium they usually wear more than the friction plates.

    Oil:
    When the bike is new, change the oil more frequently to flush out any metal debris, then I personally change my gear oil every couple of months so it probably gets changed about every 8 times I ride the bike, this helps keep the clutch working well.

    The oil type makes quite a noticeable difference to the response of the Clutch, Putoline Nano Trans GP is the best oil we've tried in the Sherco, especially with the clutch, it's pretty good with the gear shifting too and it seams to work for a long time before it needs changing. http://www.splatshop.co.uk/putoline-nano-trans-gp.html

    Missing Washer (Major clutch slippage):
    See the picture below for the washer that might be missing that causes very bad clutch slippage (highlighted in red) http://www.splatshop.co.uk/sherco-washer-a82035.html
    This washer behind the clutch hub should also be 1mm thick

    The clutch thrust bearing is 2mm thick
    The washer for the above bearing is 1mm thick

  • Break in at SplatShop 21/04/2015

    On the 21st April at 11:30pm unfortunately we were broken into at SplatShop. 5 people were involved with the burglary and came in 2 vehicles, please see the pictures below.

    They have stolen:
    2015 - Electric Motion 5.7 Competition - Orange: VF9TL0101CE968177
    2015 - Oset 16.0 Eco: OSET16E4I082
    2015 - Oset 16.0 Racing: OSET16R4I173
    2015 - Oset 20.0 Racing: OSET20R4I131

    48 Pairs of Jitsie Gloves, mixture of the Airtime and T2 Edge / Legend in various sizes.

    If anyone knows of any information that may help, the crime reference is CR16661/15, the police can be contacted on 101. Or please email us: sales@splatshop.co.uk.

    As can be seen in the pictures below, the van they put the Electric Motion in was too small to fit the bike, so they had to leave the backdoors open to drive away, if anyone saw this van driving with the backdoors open in the Sheffield/Chesterfield area last night, it may help.

    Remove your front mudguard and give it a good wash, we use a dish washing sponge with a scourer as it slight abrades the surface giving the adhesive a better hold.MudFlap-Wash
