Has anyone else here fitted a z-start to a wr400f is so did you need to install any of the shims between the inner basket and pressure plate .My instructions say nothing about adding shims although I got 80 in the packet with the locating studs for installation ???:D I have looked on the rekluse web site and there is no mention in the installation manual online however they are required in the 450 and 426 models :crazy:

Installed a Rekluse on my 98' WR400 a couple of years ago and don't recall any shims needed. I know they changed the clutch a bit between the 400 and 426. I didn't need any help, but I understand that the people at Rekluse have been very helpful. Might be a little harder to call for AU. You'll love it once you get it set up.

No shims supplied in my 400 kit, only steel plates of different thickness to adjust the "installed" gap.

Thanks folks ,I had suspected they were just thrown in as a standard hardware kit but always like to check .AND yes I am sure I will love the z-clutch as we do a fair bit of hill climbing and Iam not as quick with the left fingers as i used to be so hopefully I wont be kick starting it as often due to stalling .I have already done the feeler guage set up and only needed 1 of the rekluse plates as the outer steel to get back into tolerance
