Need a New Clutch....

So, I did a dirt skills course on my F800GS that involved a decent amount of slow speed counter-balancing turns, hill stops and turn arounds, trail riding, and a nice and deep ~400m sand wash.

The bike and I performed well (the course was mostly WRs, MX bikes, and some TTRs); however towards the end of the day, my clutch was fried. I'm pretty sure it was my lack of skill in the sand wash and too much left/right hand action at the same time.

I'm not too sure about the Rekluse after reading this guy's woes: (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1015078)

What other options are out there besides OEM and Rekluse?

I don't know of any other options .....

I pestered the Barnett www.barnettclutches.com guys over the summer and they did not have one at the time, but the engineer I talked to said he would bring the topic up at their next staff meeting ....

You could give them a poke ... see if they have anything new...

None..... That is the only two choices. Being that you are in Oside, perhaps a shout out to fellow socal riders, with the Rekluse. Pick their brains and see what they have to say. Neither solution is real cheep.

Rekluse fun

Erling:

I went to El Paso and they said you were gone. I checked the weather in Colorado and there was no way I was going there.


Anyway, I'm loving the Rekluse here in Mexico. Sorry about the OP's clutch, my spares are in storage. I'd buy the rekluse again for sure.
