Something really wrong with your setup if that's true.
The clutch is operated by centrifugal force, and will engage and/or disengage at the same engine RPM regardless of the throttle position. As was said above, if you roll down a hill at idle, or pull the clutch and let the engine drop to below the engagement speed, it will disengage, and you will not have engine breaking until the engine is raised to a speed above idle to re-engage it. Under those conditions, all you need do is blip the throttle and it will hook right back up. It's NOT a "slipper" (back-torque limiting) clutch, it's an auto-engaging clutch. Any time the engine is running fast enough, the clutch is engaged. Period. No loss of engine braking.
Don't know, I've had 3 and they all worked the exact same way. Setup per mfg specs, if I go down a steep hill, in gear, off the gas, clutch in....and then let the clutch lever
out I will get some engine braking.
Only happens on steep enough hills where you have good speed. If it's broke, I don't want to fix it. Like I said, all 3 I've owned did it and all 3 worked beautifully in my opinion so I wouldn't change a thing. 2 of those were installed by me, one installed by our local Rekluse
guru who has probably installed 20-30 of them.
And the engine braking I experience in that situation is substantially less than before Rekluse
install...like 80% less.
