RevLoc for LC4 is here!!!

RevLoc has been putting their auto clutches in some KTM 625s. So, I asked about my 2001 LC4 and learned that at long last, their auto clutch is available. They are now ready for exchanges on clutch baskets yet, so you will have to send in yours and wait.

Z-Start clutches are only around $400. Maybe they'll make one for the LC4.

I've read reviews on these things, and sissy or not, they are pretty cool. To me one of the neatest things is that you can take the clutch level off the bike completely if you want, and run a lever for the rear brake. This would help me considerably, as my right ankle is more or less fused from a previous getoff.

I guess it doesn't translate well without hearing it.

My clutch and $1000 are in to Revloc. With a 10 day backlog my ride report will have to wait a couple weeks. I will report, with photos, to y'all when I get to ride the LC4 on my favorite Ozarks trails.

Looking forward to the inital report and a long term durability report as well RL.
I can't afford one, but I have ridden a KTM equipped with one and it was great in the tight, steep shit. No worries about stalling.

5 minute ride impressions

I just had a 5 minute spin on my LC4 with the latest version of the Revloc installed. 1st there are 3 settings for clutch engagement - low, med & high RPM. I have the low setting.

Idling you can put the gearbox into first without any movement in the bike. That's better than with the lever. With the low RPM setting it seems to engage at a higher RPM than I do with the lever. The engagement is also faster than I do. It is exciting to ride as the bike leaps forward unless you are a bit cautious with the throttle application. Wick the throttle a bit and you had better hang on as you will be riding the rear wheel only. So I guess lofting the front wheel for logs will be a snap. On the street, switching between the gears it is easy to loft the front wheel with each shift. Riding with the auto-clutch is different than the old Husky 470 auto I had, but just as easy. I am looking forward to putting a few hundred miles on the bike next week.

BTW: There is a difference between the new 625 and the LC4. The gear on the back of the clutch is of a different size.
