YEP, it still goes through swingarm. it is from master banjo - to opening of the arm I think they are talking about, can rub. takes some fiddling and stuff.

Between the Master and the swingarm. The pre-bent metal pipe assembly (they made it beefier this year) can be routed too close to the swingarm. If you take the arm though the path of travel, youll see what im talking about. You will need to carefully bend the assembly. The ones that have been bad - are very close to the arm and need to be moved about another 1/2 inch away from the SA. Bend it until it clears - but watch out you dont bend it too much - just until it clears.

Pics off my 2011 that is OK for clearance.

Pulled my Techno out of the basement today. I put the rear brake tip on that got lost. I stapled up the rear fender again with safety wire. And I rode for about 15 minutes (waiting for a surgery date for my shoulder) so that's all I could take. Bike still needs work tthough.

I rode 3 full loops for the first time since I blew the ACL and had surgery back in July.
I tried riding a month ago and gave up after one loop due to pain. Much better this month. Probably helped that I dropped a class (don't care about score, just want to ride). Just happen to be out on the 5-month anniversery of the surgery. See what the knee doc thinks when I see him for a follow up visit tomorrow

I figure that when all is said and done this little knee issue will have set me back a year. But the new (OK a year old now but still new enough) Sherco is still super impressive to me.

Spent Saturday in the garage with the new Raga.Looks good in the light.Rear brake line messes with swingarm. Carb to reedblock rubber manifold hose clamps were way over tightened and split the rubber.Carb to airbox boot was only on the carb about two thirds of the way around and the hose clamp was so tight that it deformed the clamp and crushed the rubber where it clamps to the back of the carb.Glad I did not start it yet.I do not think it would have started anyway because the carb had rank old gas in it that was already plugging the jets.This looks like a Friday afternoon assembly job.Patience grasshopper,I have 4 months till I can ride it anyway.

Glad you caught that before you rode it. The brake hose is a PITA to replace when it breaks the 1st ride out. Also - while you have it apart, if you change to a 10t ft sprocket and have the axle way back in the SA, the brake hose can come under tension and cause stress on the joints/fitting and fail. The 11 Black lines were longer. The 12 hose is on the short side and only shows up as a problem if you run short gearing like me. So make sure you reroute the bend in the line "efficiently".

It seems the Euro riders run 11/41 and is probably OK.

Rode yesterday with the multi time WI state trials champ. A little cool at 40F, but you warmed up fast and the conditions were perfect. Today we got our first snowfall of 2". Trials season could be over, but I mounted my studded tires up on my KTM, so the riding will continue.
