Did you guys go for the extra $100 bucks to keep the clutch leaver on the Rekluse? Does anybody know if with EFM your stock clutch leaver will still work? I think I would want the leaver there for dead engine starts in Hare Scrambles. And yes I did do a search on EFM before making this post and did not come back with that much on them.
i have EFM unit #3 (or was that 2?) for the yz250f. put in july of 02. still there, still works perfect, still original oem clutch too.
yes, the lever works. no extra gimicks to make it work either.
oh, btw, you can see my holeshot on the dvd from the 05 LoneStar GNCC too.
and Garry and Chris will support you like nobody else.
and yes, my new 06 has an EFM in it as well. so far, 1 harescramble and 1 holeshot.

I think the autoclutch will improve my riding in the tight and nasty stuff. I know I would be faster in 2nd but am afraid of stalling so I go down to first. Then it is easy to accidentally blip the throttle too much an launch off trail. I pined my leg to a tree doing that not to long ago.
Thanks for the feedback.

You will need the longer cable too. I am not sure its worth the extra money. The external adjuster is pretty easy to get to. It would take 2 minutes and 2 wrenches to adjust it, but once its set you dont need to adjust it very often. The biggest advantage to the PA is prolly the ability to hit neutral, which you really dont need anyway. I mean the clutch disengages when stopped anyway and if you need to find neutral to restart, your bike if off and its easy to hit neutral. The ability to pull the clutch and rev the bike would then be the other advantage of the PA, and that is nice. But it would also be nice not to have any clutch lever or cable at all. Very clean. I have done both, with the PA and without. I havent decided which I like better. I was gonna go without the PA and put the hand brake on, but I didnt really like the setup. Good luck.
