Just wondering for you that have the rekluse pro dialed in. What spring and number of balls did you use. what type of riding and terrain do you mostly ride on.

I have an '06 on which I have the Rekluse pro installed. I previously had the earlier Rekluse, but found it to be an issue on starting lines (couldn't hold the clutch in, as the bike would creep as rpms increased) The Pro, handles all that, and is less maintenance intensive as well, requires less attention. With the older Rekluse I used heavier balls to drop the engagment point. I liked to be able to hop over rocks and logs by burping the throttle. The stock setup engaged a bit too high for that sort of response. I was prpared to use the heavier balls with the "Pro" version, but decided to baseline it as it came from Rekluse. I found the stock "Pro" set up as deliverd by Rekluse worked fine, and did not need the extra balls. The 450 has enough grunt it can torque its way through a lower engagment point. A 250 may not be that flexible. Also, I retained the handle bar adjuster from my earlier Rekluse, this allowed me to further tune the engagment of the clutch. I can sit on the starting line with the clutch "in" experience no creep, and with practice, feed it in for the first bit just like a stocker, and then forget about it the rest of the day...just like cheating......:smirk:

Thank you eazrider. I think I have the engagment point set pretty good.I get no creep at idle but it is close. The problem I had after the first ride is controling the throttle on some of the nasty technical uphills, before I would use the clutch to ride that fine line with out looping it over. I was wonder if using the 24 balls would help a little bit.

I personally do not know anybody that was happy using just 24 balls...it is too 'soft' feeling.

I use 27 balls and both the main spring and the softer of the bigger diameter springs. If I use just the main spring then I can actually brake-stall the bike because it does not disengage quite quick enough..

I have the dual rear break kit with the two finger clutch. Maybe i need to get it adjusted and use it more.
