Not trying to be a smarta**, but did you readjust the clutch so that the pull back on the clutch lever is correct?

The reason I ask, is that I had the same problem a few days after I installed the Rekluse - and went back and found I had not setup the pull back correctly.
Reset it and it works great.
Just asking.

55,000 trouble free miles on my Rekluse and I've done some very big trips with it. Its great for long trips IMO. Just carry the .78 drive plate with you.

The Rekluse is awesome for white lining through heavy traffic, doing full lock turns dodging pedestrians and chicken carts on busy sidewalks, outstanding in big rocks and riverbeds, very nice to have in axle deep mud.

Its one of those things that people seem to either love or hate so before you buy one I would highly recommend trying one out first.

Made a world of difference for me. Like some one said
the bike looses 100lbs off road untill you have to pick it up

Sure, I'll head to Walmart and pick one up.

On the 950 there is a recommended gap of .035 to .055
under the pressure plate. Mine is hair less than .050 and
it's slipping. Unless I check the gap every week, how would
I have known such a problem was looming.

It's coming off as soon as I get home. Might be nice for trails,
but not for long distance trips

As others have said - check your freeplay as per the install instructions. That may be where your problem is if its the exp 2.0

I think i'm going to try one of these out myself. I don't know how you can go wrong with their guarantee!
You can bump start with the 990 model by adjusting the slave.

Rekluse offers a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. If for any reason you want to return a Rekluse clutch within
the 30-Day return period

I love them on all my dirt bikes. KTM530 yz250 smoker. But removed the one that came in my 950. Great off road, but very scary for motard style aggressive on road riding.. I dont like highlides

I can see the issue with SM style riding, but that's a long way from how I ride on the street!

I've been riding my 990 in places and conditions that I really have no business even being NEAR; I'm short, old, and weak, and the Rekluse really does make that much easier. Yes, when the bike is cold (or even cool...) it grabs and chatters but that's fairly easy to overcome with the lever and it's only when it's cold. The rest of the time it's really nice not ot have to manage the clutch.

It was reallly nice in this mess not to have to manage the clutch; I was working too hard at just staying upright when starting and stopping...

Well I have a Rekluse pro in my 2 smoker, one in my sons 250F, and being a long time snowmobiler it's so easy to deal with. So when I purchased a 990 I knew I was getting one with no regret's... It really does make somethings simpler...

Your riding on the slab coming up to a corner too fast to make, you cut throttle off, change down a couple of gears. Are you just living on the brakes? Or is the rekluse still gripping, or like all other centrifugal clutches I’ve know, no revs...no worky.

If you let the rpm come to idle while down shifting it will free wheel until you blip the throttle but if you drop a gear quickly it won't freewheel at least that's the way my exp was in the SE

What about bull dogging? (walking the bike, engine off, using the clutch as the rear brake and the front brake)? I have many miles on my 250s like that, fortunatley haven't got there with my 950 yet but I considered it today. I am considering more gearing for more compression braking, am torn on the Rekluse.

However I might have avoided this:

The only thing the rekluse won't do is stay engaged blow idle... With the exp for the most part you could take the bike for a ride and if I didn't tell you it had a rekluse you wouldn't know lever feels/works the same

But with the engine off it would disengage? How do you park on a hill?

Engine off=disengaged. I have a strip of double sided velcro on the right mirror stalk I use if I need a parking brake.
