With advice from Ryan Young as well as Canadian and Australian Scorpa vendors, replaced the Long Ride tank on our street-legal 2008 Scorpa TY-S175/200F with the newer, slightly smaller stock tank the 125 comes with. The tank swap restores the lost steering lock and allows the bike to turn much tighter like a real trailer should. Next step will be investigating fitting a hydraulic clutch.

After riding the Team TY in competition this past weekend, I DO NOT recommend the Chinese hydraulic clutch. It sucks, and I do mean sucks something awful. It's going in the trash.

The next step for the 80, one you should look into. Heard lots of good things about it -

The value of that bike is going up about 25%.

AquaNet is useful for more than just scary 80's hairstyles!

I ise standard Domino grips. They look nice the rubber is sticky and soft too, bit still don't wear as much as any other. To get them on I use brake cleaner which had worked very nice but you have only seconds for mounting.

Yes but spending many €€€ for a tubec were you only need 1/20 of the containment and which will then dry out if you try to use it again after two years.

Instead brake cleaner, I believe I use around 5 cans a year ... and so cheap!

Windex. Not any of the knock-offs either. Genuine Windex. Spray in the grip and on the bar, then install rather quickly. It'll dry in a couple of minutes, and the grips are there to stay.

I understand it also cleans glass.

Yellows various iterations of plastic windshields as well. Not that that's been a problem on the Sherco. So far.

Probably the ammonia - fogs aircraft canopies, too. Rubbing alcohol.

Whodathought that you can trim up a EVO air filter with some scissors and it will fit an older Sherco pretty good?

You might want to try that if your dog chews up your Sherco filter.

We couldn't blame him. Poor guy, it just looked like one of his stuffed animal toys. All good and we are at an event now.
