    i made more than 500 hours on sherco 2018 2t 300. Clutch plates are not very good. had to change them 3 times due to slipping while on ktm i can run them more than 500 hours. It is heavier than ktm. not a big difference but you feel it. ktm tpi can lug at lower rpm while sherco will stall. if you consider making 500 hours on bike cracked rear subframe is almost 100% but you can weld it. every sherco rider i know had cracked subframe. overall build quality on ktm is much better. but there are nice benefits of sherco: better suspension(kyb but be aware my friends have lots of problems with leaky seals and bad bushings), better exhaust chamber, no exhaust flange that can be broken like on ktm, very tough rear suspension linkage(smash it all you want, no need for guard). Still after making change to ktm tpi 2019 overall it is a much better bike than my old sherco.

    Took a chance and ordered a 300se factory, should arrive in a week. My current '15 300 is not as light as a TPI & it has every single protection gadget you can think + UHD tubes and a 120 Shinko Cheater in the rear so I don't think the Sherco will be heavier than that lol.

    I still have nightmares about riding my brother's '06 wr450 in the woods (it was a tank!!) but somehow after 15 years I still remember those KYB were really really good. I have a feeling I'm not going back to orange bikes anytime soon. Will post a review once I ride it.

    I had a 16 Sherco 300 SER with WP suspension and to be totally honest, I would not recommend one based on my experience. It weighed 260lbs ready to ride and was always overheating even with a fan on it. That being said, it handled quite good but the constant overheating made me get rid of it. I was back on a Husky TE250 the next season and that bike was soooooo much better in every aspect.

    Must of had something wrong with it. My 14 Sherco 300 SE-R was much, much more overheat resistant than my 2011 300 XC and about the same as my 2018 250 XC-W. Had 270 hours on my 14 and was very happy with the reliability.

    Honestly IMO not a big difference going from the Sherco to the 18 XC-W IMO. The KTM motor is more lively but the Sherco was definitely superior in the real hard stuff and I like the gear spread on the Sherco better. I wouldn't hesitate to get another Sherco, and I might next go around.

    I dont dispute that there was something wrong with it, but no one could figure it out. The Dist replaced cylinders, heads, water pumps. I finally just gave up and flogged it.

    its nice having a good choice, over hear OZ the sherco racing models are around $1500-2k less than the ktm's and factory with KYB is $500 more that husky

    ktm's/ husky have increase by around $600 for 2021, bummer
