Do you have any knowledge of any engine work done by previous owner ?

My understanding is about 350 to 400 hours is max on a 4 stroke trail bike piston ridden easy.

I have no info at all on the bike I know the old owner he bought it on about 300 hours, I've given it some stick in the 30 odd hours I've ridden it, I've been doing some research there's 3 different pistons AB & C how do I know what one I need is it a case if strip the engine down and measure up or is there a print on the one that's in the engine now, sorry I'm clueless at the min 馃槖

I saw 2 pistons and it refers to engine serial number.
I would talk to previous owner if you can to see if it has been done.
If not take your time doing it .
Clean engine before disassembly.
Do it in a clean organized way.
Research sherco manuals.
Inspect cylinder. It might need to be replated if so send new piston so they can match bore to piston.
Definitely replace all cly. head valves. And the retainers and springs and seals.

Reason is if it breaks a valve due to fatigue it destroys the engine.
