I just picked a Sherco ST 300 2015, my first Trials bike
Some newbie with a Sherco?
Sweet bike. I'm a newbie with a Beta so I won't be any help whatsoever to you.

for a newbie you really went all out with that van !
I have a 2015 ST250 and think it is an awesome machine - I am sure you will have a lot of fun on the 300 !.
Hell Ya, I have that bike too. Hey, how much gap between the header and skid plate ? Mine is like zip, took apart and tried to make more but no go ? New bikes have lots, Have fun.
Here's me and mine ('18 250 ST), picked up earlier this year from NW Cycles:
Both my 250 ST and my old '14 3.0 ST have a very small gap between the skid plate and the header pipe. I'd guess 1/4" to 3/8". If you have no gap, I might investigate if the exhaust 'doughnut' has collapsed or disintegrated. While I do not think that the skid plates are stressed, on these bikes, they do have a very tight fit. The plate on my 3.0 was slightly sprung and bending back some did make it fit better (but did not widen that gap). YMMV. HTH.
I don't want to Jack his thread, But, I took my plate off and it was sprung about 4". Some big hits with the hammer and she fit perfect. Replaced the bots and nuts. It fit a tad better, took grinder to plate edge, better. O-ring good so reinstalled the pipe. I've looked at other sherco's, LOTS of gap. But, it's not hurting anything.
If you have no gap between the skid plate and the header, the most likely reason is just a bent header. As mentioned, on this bike, there's almost no room there already, so it doesn't take much of a bump to stuff the header into the skid plate.
Definitely take the skid plate off and bang it back into form, but typically the portion up near the header isn't where you'll get any plate deformation.
You guys need to contact RYPusa for some proper Sherco clothing to go with those bikes.
I got it, don't use at home. Sept the helmet. RYP like me. Made 2 orders last month and asked for a few stickers for my helmet 2.
Real men don't were pajamas.
There's a nice stump to the left!
Still riding in jeans, flannel shirt and Red Wing Irish Setters?
Modern Jersy and trials boots and gloves. Pajamas never. Whenever the pajamas guys, (ever notice the same guys play in sweats also?) crash and rip the trousers and themselves I just smile and wonder why? Jeans would be thrice the protection.
Well it sure was awesome last summer in Kingman, Arizona watching all those beautiful girls from across the world riding in their pajamas.
Fat men wear pajamas
Funny that they send the Sherco guy orange stickers?
Uh, no. But, it does sound like you're a little jealous..... I don't ride in jeans, nothing better than some MX pants on close-out (at the end of the season). I wear a rashguard instead of a t-shirt or jersey. It's cooling and means I can skip the sunscreen (except for my face).
