Sherman Max was in rain and I hear & felt motor slippage? Can someone explain what this was?


Recommended Posts

I was caught out in the rain the other day on my Sherman Max. After a little bit in the rain at low/medium speeds I heard as what I can only describe to sound and feel like the motor grinding/slipping? I do not think it was the side shell rubbing against the motor as I recently fixed this.

It made that grunting noise and it felt like something caught in the wheel (but there wasn't I don't think). I also noticed a little bit of pedal looseness at very infrequent moments. I was not riding fast due to fear of what might happen.

Since that night my SherMax has dried out and everything is back to normal (no noises, no turbulent feeling, etc).

What could this have been? Anyone else experience this type of thing before?
