Rekluse z-start clutch & brake
Posted July 21, 2005 - 04:49 AM
Is anybody out there running the full rekluse set up? I mean the semi auto clutch, with the bar mounted rear brake and clutch override lever?
My questions are do you think you need the manual override, is the bar mounted brake lever useful and is it worhwhile retaining the footbrake too?
Do i need the perch adjuster?
I've searched and got some good info' I'd appreciate opinions from long time users as well.
I'd be fitting to an 04 WR450FS

Plus, like the others said, I like using the clutch to roost out of corners.

P.S. For "MX ONLY" I wouldn't bother with any of it except for starts. The first time you do a second (maybe third) gear start and pin it, you'll understand why some people call it ch***ing.

the clutch on the yamaha 450's is well known for their 'drag factor' they never really fully disengage,and the rekluse uses the stock plates and basket,thats why it's a good idea for this particular setup. i guess you could go buy a ktm there spiceboy....NOT
I have a RevLoc equipped 525 EXC with the LHRB. I have eliminated the foot brake and manual clutch and do not miss them one bit. If you ride much technical stuff... steep uphills, downhills, switchbacks, etc, I guarantee that you will come to greatly appreciate the left hand operated rear brake. I kept the manual clutch at first but found it to be unnecessarily redundant. I have never had the need to manually fan the clutch with the RevLoc. The engine always starts just fine in gear without the manual override. I put the tranny in neutral to start only with a cold engine.

kbryant are you thinking that the perch adjuster sits on the handlebars?
it is my understanding that only the rear brake & clutch override levers are bar mountable, the perch adjuster sits down by the clutch on the motor.....i think?
