Only got about 100 miles on mine so far and love it. Really easy to install. Definetly stealing the double sided Velcro trick.

Why not

I have been kicking the idea of getting one for a long time... Yesterday I called Chip at Munn at and ordered a EXP setup . I hate traffic and Ii am Not that tall so for that reason I'll give it a try and I figured after this long they would have all he buggs worked out.....

This thing would be indispensable for city traffic.

Hate to ask, but is the consensus to go with synthetic ATF to replace the mineral oil ? I am thinking it is a better choice then fork oil but it seems people use both. Not asking brands (dont want to go there) just if the ATF is the most popular choice with the least problems ?

Pretty sure either one works just as well...1 thing about ATF is you can get it anywhere if your in need of fork oil on a Sunday you might be screwed

That says it as well as can be said, I think. The ATF gives slightly more lever effort than the factory fluid, I've found.

I went with synth ATF based on CJs rec and find it to give a lighter and more consistent action. Stock fluid was UGLY tho...

What is the benefit of ATF over mineral oil?

Oh thats what thats for!

Finaly

Just finished putting my exp in the Super enduro. When I got the cluch out It seamed pretty dry like almost 0 oil was getting to it so I figgured while I was there I would check the oil jet. To my suprise it was not pluged but man what a tine ass hole I went ahead and did the mod drilling out the Jet to 0.5mm and this also presented an issue finding a 0.5mm drill bit but after some digging I was able to source one got the jet drilled everything back together and adjusted. Pretty sure i got the brake in all done might need a bit more still has a little jerky take off but seams to be working pretty good. I also switched to ATF when I put the slave cyl on an actually it was quite noticeable difference in lever feed back, i should have done that years ago. I also noticed alot less clutch rattle noise when the bike is idling this may also be due to the EXP but I would like to think the clutch is getting more oil now,anyway so far so good Ill take it to work tomorrow and see how she does

I get quite a bit of grabbiness/chatter/general clutch ugliness with the EXP on initial take off if I don't warm the bike up fully first. Once it's warm, it's perfect, so I either ignore it or start the bike a coupla minutes earlier.

Rekluse notes that there's a lot of change in teh freeplay on this bike from cold to warm, so I don't think it's an issue.

It's mildly annoying but not bad enough to give their excellent customer service a call over.
