    On an older GasGas, the mid pipe was rubbing on the frame and I just cut a piece of inner tube and wedged it in between to give the pipe something softer to rub against. My guess is that the mid-pipe is cooler than the header so don't know if that fix would work on your hotter header area. I guess you could always try, ride it a bit and see if you get the rubber to burn - not good - but if it doesn't, then maybe you will keep the pipe from having a hole rubbed in it. Otherwise, you would need to re-bend the pipe out and away from the frame and not sure how easy that would be to do.

    Header has a small ding on front side, can't believe it got bent back ? It's not made of steal, no room for anything, needs that gap. Was think of calling Ryan next week and picking his brain. Or you guys. Drain bolt on this is a front bottom bolt that keeps the case halves together and there is no room to get it out with the rubber cushion. So I loosen the back skid plate bolts and that sucker spring DOWN under tension, she's bent in or up in the middle from what I can figure. I don't have a press to mash it around with. Oh the Drama.

    Not going to wait for skid plate ferry, got R close. U can see how far back it lined up. Took air box off and cleaned, new air filter installed too. Tomorrow new bolts.

    With the oil that was in the header, and what the tail end looks like I wish I could change the main can out with new.

    Skid plate back on with new S/S bolts, was concerned about the head pipe not seating and leaking with 1 gasket but that's how they made it. So I fired it up, no leaks, sounds cool with out the end in. Today I'll get some new packing and finish this up and RIDE it. Been so wet this year, big trials mid May I hope to make. Moving up a class.

    New tires on Tenere need a good break in ride. I'm thinking of riding there this Saturday for a peak.

    Pain to stuff pipe. Fired up, warmed R up. I always pump clutch lots before I put it in gear. Today the clutch didn't want to break loose. About launched it. Got it rolling, put in gear putted around no disingagement. Took cover off a few times, seemed to be moving clutch ? 3rd time worked. Never EVER had a clutch stick, but glad it worked out.

    My '14 ST 3.0 likes to stick the clutch, too. I do this now before I try to kick start it:

    Put the trans in 3rd
    Rock the bike back and forth, with clutch engaged and disengaged (you should be able to hear the piston moving up and down).
    Shift into Neutral
    Apply choke (if necessary).
    Kick start the engine (it usually takes 2 kicks max for the engine to fire)
    Shift into second with front brake applied (this will usually break the clutch plates loose if they haven't broken loose already).
    Release clutch and ride off. If plates are still stuck, disengage clutch, while rolling, and use front & rear brakes to see if that won't break the clutch loose.

    If you're still having trouble, you might consider changing the trans oil? Or, investigating the clutch pack further.

    I'll try that in gear rocking, it has fresh oil. If it dorks out again I may pull it out and have a look, sand them or ? Mine is a 3 kicker.

    Probably lean on the pilot. Check out Benes jetting on the Sherco.

    I'm the third owner of my bike and I had Ron (Northwest Cycle) adjust the carb a year ago. I haven't really touched it since. I'm sure it could be better but it always starts and seems to run well (not a lot of smoke, unlike other bikes).

    Clutches start to stick because the tiny bit of wear of each fiber-metal surface polishes the interface. Static pressure plate force over time pushes the interface oil out and the adhere.

    More oil will be retained in the interfaces when the surfaces are less polished (rougher microscopic terrain)

    To get rid of most or all clutch sticking for a while, remove the clutch plates and de glaze the metal and fiber surfaces. If your clutch works great otherwise, remove the pack as a unit and mark the plates so you can return to the same orientation and clocking on reassembly. If you have shudder, you can carefully measure each plate and clock the high spots of your six fiber plates such that they tend not to add up. Do the same for the metal plates.

    Deglazing is just random scratching up of the friction surfaces with, say, 220 grit sand paper or Scotch Brite, or lighter action with heavier grits. Don't remove fiber plate material such that the thickness changes!

    Try this and report on how effective this trick is for you (or not).

    To nice not to ride, stuck again. Did the 3rd gear rock, it worked. Will sand next few days. Raised my log, oh I went down, chicken ass. Trying that bounce front tire off obstacle. Made video but can't edit so won't post it.
