I've had this damn Rekluse sitting in it's box in my Garage,
....yelling,...no, screaming !! at me for over 2 months now.
I've had some housebuilding priorities that have kept me from spending time with Big Orange.

This morning, I finally got it installed.
Easy. Very Easy. Two hours; only because I read the instructions 4 times to be totally comfortable with it.
A good and experienced wrench would take less than an 1/2 hour total, likely.
It worked perfectly first try, with just how it came pre-packed in the box.
Clutch "free play" adjustment took only two tries. Very easy.

OMG, this big mutha of dirtbike really needs this autoclutch. Thumpers beware
I'm really gonna like this...



Out for a "testride"........ C-ya !!!!

Steep, rocky & loose,....just slow down, massive traction, and NO STALLING





I made it up the POWERLINE road by going up the hill by the Oak Ridge Trail (off Smullin) to the top of Surveyor's ridge off FS17
I have never rode anything quite like that in my life...
...it was worse (I mean...better ) ....than the ride up to Mt Defiance

I'm going to have and reset mine to the OOTB setup and see if I still have the slippage at 4k-5K RPM.

Yeah, I mighta jumped the gun a bit with my "perfect" comments.....
I rode it on the street yesterday, and when I was passing a car, I hammered it at about 5k...
and then it spun quickly to 6k & 6.5k, then it finally grabbed and took off.

It's not quite like a normal clutch slip where you must let off throttle for it to grab,....it re-grabbed with the throttle on,
but it did slip. repeatedly. Hmmm.

Hmm - maybe I'll wait them as those are the same symptoms I had. Riding at an RPM of 4k, open the throttle, and the clutch would slip for about 1k then it would hook up.

Are you running synthetic? When I called Rekluse they said using synthetic may cause the slipping

Switching to the heaver wedges help for me. I also changed the springs for a higher idle RPM.

I have always used Motorex 10-50, the stock-type synthetic oil.
I will just ride it for a little while before I change anything, checking the clutch free-play regularly, just to see what happens.
It does not feel to me like this slip will actually hurt anything, but it'll need to be solved.

Maybe this is just a break-in issue?
I'm gonna do a larger oil jet, and I'll look at a change/fix at that same time.

That's the same oil I use. I agree, I don' t think the slipping will hurt anything, especially if you don't pass cars

The beauty of the EXP design is that it's very easy and quick to change out settings. I've done it twice and it's about a 10 minute job. If I get motivated and switch back to the stock 990 setting I'll post up if I still have the slipping.

I was having the same problems. (Running Rotella reg oil). Hammer it at 4K and slip a K. I talked to Rekluse and they sent me 6 thinner smooth disk. I was then able to use another/added friction disk.

This helped a lot, but still not quite there.

I then installed the 3 heavier wts. at Rekluse's suggestion. Now it is spot on. I think if you did'nt know the bike had a rekluse in it and I let you try my bike, you would'nt even know it was Reklused. I can now break loose the rear in gravel, just like the OEM clutch. Its dang near perfect for me. And I have complete engine breaking going downhill, same as the OEM, unless you were to clutch it for a moment.

I'm completel sastified and happy!!

'Still wondering why folks are wasting time and money on these clutches...

If they all worked perfectly straight out of the box, I might understand that they provide value in maybe 1% of the riding conditions you'd likely experience, but with the cost of these things, and the tuning frustrations, why bother?
