Rekluse KTM 950/990 Adjustable Slave Cylinder
 
Has anyone installed the Rekluse Adjustable Slave Cylinder? Looking at the parts diagram it apears to have a 3 seal piston like the Sigutech. My original slave failed today and Im looking at all options including Rekluse.

Thanks

So you have the stock clutch and want to use the Rekluse slave? I have the Rkluse clutch and slave and not sure why you'd want the slave with the stock clutch?

You can use the Rekluse Slave with the OEM clutch.

We have the Rekluse and Oberon Slaves available. Email if you have any questions.

If you are looking to upgrade to the EXP system in the future, the Rekluse slave purchase now makes the most sense if you need a replacement.

Thank you-

Ducttape- yeah rekluse states that their slave can be used as a standalone replacement to the oem slave.

CJ- I may upgrade to the Rekluse clutch later on. What affect if any does the adjustable slave have on the stock clutch pack? Can the rekluse slave and the oberon mount be used together?

Thx

Rekluse slave/ stock clutch pack - works as OEM should, just don't put any pressure on pushrod like you would with the Rekluse EXP system installed.

Yes, the Billet backer is a great upgrade for any LC8 engine to keep the clutch slave square with the engine for long life. I have those in orange or black.

Hi:

Can you tell me if I can fit "Quick Disconnect fuel fittings KTM- Billet" on a 1190 Adventure R? Thanks.

Not an ADV but a helpful Rekluse Install Video for the Adjustable Slave Cylinder.

I put a Rekluse slave in mine after the stock unit failed. Run the stock clutch and works great! Hope to upgrade to the EXP soon.

G'day guys
Hoping for some enlightenment :)

I bought an EXP Rekluse for my 990R.
Its the latest version 3 with the 6 replacement thinner drive plates.

Installed everything fine at the default 990 settings, did everything as per the instructions and all was well.

Following day, headed off for a two day 1100 k ride and within the first 50k's, its tarted slipping badly.
Stopped and adjusted, all good. withing a couple more hours it started slipping again so backed it off a bit more to give me the 3 mm.
All goo for a while, following morning withing another couple hours, slipping again so backed off until I get the 3mm movement.
Again, within a couple hours on the home stretch, its started slipping again and needed to be backed off.

So in 1100k's Ive had to adjust the slave cylinder 4 times :huh

Any clues whats going on here?

Thanks in advance

Positive on the friction & steel disc removal??? Of important note... the Rekluse drive plates are thinner than the OEM. I'm sure you know this if you followed the video & written instructions. Might double check, though since you seem to have a "growing" free-play gain issue. They also have a specific break-in procedure... I'm sure it's "wore in" now though.

Check your clutch oil jet for good measure as well, to make sure it's not clogged, causing excessive heat, etc.

Water in oil from WP seal failure?

I'd call their customer service. They are known in this industry as one of few companies that give exceptional customer service.

(866) 735-5873

Best of luck. Keep us posted.

Hey JRod
Double checked everything, all good and appears as it should.
I have the "right amount of leftovers" too :lol3
Did an oil and filter change at the same time, bike only has 12k klm on it.
Ive drilled the oil jet to 0.5mm.
Free gain seems to be reducing, as when I get slip, there is no free gain left at the lever and I have to back off the slave screw.

Calling is a bit hard from Australia so Ive sent them an email last night, waiting for a reply.

Cheers

Could it possably be air in the line ?

My next thought too. I'm sure you bled it for the install.

Only other immediate thought... Did you install the ball bearing? It can be pesky and require a bit of grease to hold in place correctly.

1coolbanana 03-24-2014 08:22 PM

All bled............balls in place (in wifes hand bag) :lol3

Clutch lever never felt better......slave just needs to be adjusted every few hundred k's when it slips

When I first installed my Rekluse I had some slippage. I didn't notice that the outer most friction disk that rides against the pressure plate is actually different from the other friction disks (it doesn't look that different, but it's a different P/N). I had left this one out accidentally. I swapped it in to correct the problem, as well as measured the thickness of all my steels and used the thickest ones, and haven't any slippage since. Just throwing that out there since it didn't seem that clear from the Rekluse install video
