Another Happy Rekluse Owner
Posted April 08, 2006 - 09:25 AM
Another interesting factoid is that I'm using full-synthetic Amsoil in it with no ill effects as yet. The tech said that he runs Amsoil in his 2-stroke with no problems and thought I should be just fine...however, time will tell for sure. BTW, Rekluse's customer service is not to be believed. The guys were more than happy to stay on the phone with me when I had some questions during the install and they helped me dial in my adjustments perfectly ...SC

Hey NC, remember that post. AHHH, I'm just bustin you balls big guy. I am glad to hear you like your setup. Will you let me know how you like the little override deal. Can I order that as an addition to the handbrake setup I already have. I cant find it on the Rekluse website (sux). And Damnit, you beat me to the billet cap on that resivior. I love my handbrake setup. Just today, my buddy (TT member "Big Davey") was having trouble with his perch adjuster. I still havnet had to dick with my engine mounted external adjuster. I love it. Please let me know all the particulars when you get your override. Thanks, BnB.

that little spring down on the motor just doesn't look like it could handle the mud i ride in. i use the override alot,sometimes its hard to spin when you want because the clutch offers such good traction control,also for finding neutral with the bike running and dead start HS its a must have. i've never had my perch adjuster come undone (maybe a little more elbow grease when tightening?) and the perch adjuster allows on the fly adjusting, after couple hrs in the tight technical stuff where it tends to build alot of heat,i've had to adjust the tension on the cable and then after it cools it'll be tight again;and adjust it back. more of a fine tuning thing,i also feel more in touch with the lever

Also one more thing-when checking the install gap I some how scrapped the edge of the clutch fibre on the plate off-is this something to be worried about? And how do you check the gap then without doing some sort of damage to the clutch plate fibres?

I change my oil after each ride (Delo 400) and have had good results.
I also started with my gap at .030.
As far as the Customer service they are awesome. At the Phoenix Worcs race I took my bike to their booth and they were more that happy to check it out to see that the perch adjuster etc. was setup correctly. Their tech even fabbed up a support for the perch adjuster to keep it from flopping around.
I'm very happy with my Rekluse.

if the delo is not rated CI-4 PLUS its ok,it'll say on the bottom of the API circle. now the 15-40 rotella is also rated CI-4 PLUS but,they did not add any more friction modifiers as did chevron
Hey Indy, we have been following your oil posts, trying to stay on top of things, thanks by the way. My question is this. Upon checkng labels of most diesel engine oils they all 'look' the same. They all meet the same standards. So why is it Shell now? Is it 'moly' related. Will it hurt to finish up the Delo 400 we already bought and then just switch to Rotella. And which wieght should we get. Thanks, I know this has been hashed and re-hashed. Its alot of info for a couple of dumb blue collar Montanans.
