Sherco 300 serf 2018 valves and top end

Hi guys, just purchased the above and am loving it, it has 92 hours (2400 kms) and everything runs smooth.The guy I bought it off says valves haven't been checked and his last Sherco got them checked at 140 hours and all in spec.He was an older guy (68) and said he just lugged around in the bush no hard riding.Ive rung a few Sherco dealers to get a price to check the valves and one asked if a top end has been done yet and suggested I should get it done. The bike runs well with no black smoke out of exhaust and has good smooth power all the way, starts no worries. Just after some advice and your thoughts.

I've done 125hrs on my 2015 300sefr Had the valves checked @ 1000 klm all was good, had valves checked & a comp test about 500klm ago, 1 valve needed slight adjustment & comp was where it should be ! It's done 3,300klm & Goes as good as new, i'm a young wippersnipper ( 66 ) so i have revved it out a few times a few rides ago i thought i had revved it out all the way probably around 9000rpm, then i gave the throttle a bit more & i recon there was an extra 800-1000 rpm's there.
If you want a TOP mecahnic who knows his was around any brand of bike, give Anthony @ Proline M C in Crimebourne a ring !!

Thatís good to know this bike hasn't or doesn't lack in any power and starts very easy, Will get the valves checked soon just hope I wasn't been offered extra work that isn't necessary.

Procedure is very straight fwrd ,

Albeit a snug extraction / refit if valve cover .

Other than that . Line up the indicators , slide in gauges , check , re check ....


Record .


Clean up , bead of sealant , on btm side of gasket ,,


Way u go .


Lots to f$&k up tho if not methodical ...

Was a shop mate, of course they want to add extra shit on for you to spend. Plus a shop would be following the manufacturers recommendation, but usually those maintenance sheets are created for if the bike was used as a racer. Overkill for the average trail rider.

I'd check valve clearances only if it's never been done; no point doing a top-end if previous owner wasn't a racer down at the track ringing its guts out.

Thanks guys l will definitely give Anthony a call soon to get the valves checked. It's good to know that there are people out there that aren't just in it for the cash.
