I must be one of the few who have had problems with the Rekluse!
I installed it but could not get the bike running with it
Went thru the process again and again. Checked everything twice, had someone watch me and still the bike did not like it
Finally got it running with it! took it for a ride and smoked the clutch plates
Replaced the plates $$$ and started again. This time set the gap for the plates much wider. The bike runs fine, if the gap on these is too tight you can end up with the bike pushing in gear at low revs and smoked clutch plates. Set the gap with rekluses wider!
You loose the ability to bump start the bike
You loose the drop the clutch accelleration.
You loose a clutch lever!
You gain better control by hanging on with a better death grip.(left hand)
You gain the potential to have a rear brake like a push bike!(left hand) kinda defeats the first gain lol.
I think I'll like the Rekluse
when it is worn in more! Or maybe when I'm more used to it!
After spending big dollars on this item I have to say I'm not really happy yet!
In terms of my bike I have, 06 WR450 Dr D
pipe, JD jetting
, MSC stearing dampner
, heavier springs. I believe the best thing to buy would be a dampner.
Forget the Rekluse unless you have spare coin!
That said the guys at Rekluse are excellent and the supplier in Oz is very helpfull!
I can ride longer now with less fatigue using the clutch (due to heavy feel) but, this could be fixed with a hydraulic clutch anyway. Super light feel to them. Also I tend now to leave the bike in a higher gear because it is just easier.
I'll know when I have clocked up another 1000km on this bike if the Rekluse is up to the task.
Also I see a few bikes are coming out with slipper clutches standard so it wont be too long till they all have em!
