Should I get a new bike or a Auto Clutch????
Posted February 04, 2003 - 04:24 AM
My bike starts first or second kick, hot or cold. Has more power than I can ever use.I have never had a problem with it. It is set up perfectly to suit my needs.
Instead of a new bike, I'm thinking about an auto clutch,RevLoc,EFM, etc.
I think it would better and mutch cheaper than a new bike.
Why would you need electric start if you bike never stalls?

I like the ability to mount the rear brake on the handlebar. Would make wheelies super easy to control. Plus in the tight stuff brake-slide turns would be easier to control. I can't think of many negatives, other than price.

I like the idea of the rear brake on the handlebar. Has that been done? Where would you get the brake line and master cylinder? Could you keep the pedal as well??
It would take some getting used to, but I think it would be awesome.

If (big if) I were in your shoes....here is another TT'r view on your situation......
1. Bike you have now you love, set up for you, it rocks, reliable and makes you smile (True???)
2. with a new bike, while it is new and all that aaaahhhh that comes with a new ride, it: aint broke in, aint set up for me (bars, skid plate all other dooo dads) and with the estart you can still stall it, without the clutch.
Me?...check the parts manual and see if the 450 clutch = 426 clutch.
If so....get a auto clutch (EFM for example) mount it on your current trusty well setup etc steed and love it. In another year + then take the clutch out and put it on your new WR....and yes...with my dale, once I hit that happy button, the ONLY time the motor stops is when I do it with the kill switch.
Even during a crash, the bike just lays there and idles laughin at you, pick it up WITHOUT your hand on the clutch lever and the motor continues to run....personal repeated experiance here!!!
me....for the $600....and everything else you are saying about your current ride...
get the clutch.
But then...thats just some old farts opinion....that when added to $1.25 you can get a large soda somewhere!

Based on the breif experience I've had with mine so far....I'm pleased with the purchase.
