This is not completely true.
I rarely lose engine braking- I have to be close to a standstill- really- like falling-over slow. And in anticipation of installing on a 990, I asked Rekluse about the no-bump-start idea.
While true on my 525, it won't be on a 990. The Rekluse 990 uses a replacement clutch slave that has the adjustment the Rekluse requires. On the 990, it's easy (like turning an allen screw easy) to return the clutch to manual performance, providing bump-start capability.
