So, with the current setup you have (I assume full pipe, PCV and AT) how is she holding up? I ask because I have a similar setup. Any signs of slippage? And how is the off throttle bite? And lastly, which springs are you running, stiff springs, soft bite of soft springs, stiffer bite?

And lastly, when ya setting up the group buy???Put me first on the list, I'm in.

I am sorry, but as much as I want to fill you in, I promised Rekluse that I would not... So they would have a chance to refine their product, prior to release. Please don't take this the wrong way. I would certainly entertain the group buy, if Rekluse would allow me, but as with new products, I have no idea. As soon as they clear me to talk.... I will post a full ride report with install pictures.....ride video's etc. in a separate thread. Sorry.

(ps)... I have however found a new favorite thing to do....LOL..... Pull up to a fellow rider in neutral, at a stop light....... Then adjust the visor with your left hand, while you pop it in first....... Ha ha..... dear in the headlight look......Priceless.

I'm in excruciating pain with open socket and root canal work....and I'd use my dental money to buy a Rekluse for the BMW.



You have to have priorities people. I can always eat soup.

So, can we assume you will be running a Rekluse in say, 6 moths?

It looks like many riders does not know what a "slipper clutch" or "auto clutch" is, and let alone what it does. So with out commenting on the particulars of this soon to be released clutch from Rekluse, I wanted to illustrate perhaps one big benefit. This is broad, and not localized to the 8GS. Low speed handling. I will leave it at that, but any bike with it will promote, or should I say, it's low speed handling characteristics. Enjoy.

If so, maybe Recluse will want someone from Australia to test it in our conditions, which is mostly effected by Aussie beer 'cause that is mostly what we get here you know. Unless of course we are on a health kick and are consuming Mexican fruit salads (Coronas with lime wedges inserted) but you can only be healthy for so long and you go back to the real stuff.

Either way, my hand is up send over one of the clutch kits and I will test the crap out of it.



(What the hell, it is worth a try, right?)

A "slipper clutch" it is not, better term is centrifugal clutch. Your vid would have been much better if your hand was in the air or on the left bar inboard of the clutch lever to better illustrate the fact that to do that type of riding you do not ever touch the clutch. (just saying...)

PS: Your freek'in weather pisses me off(LOL)

Before I moved State side, I went on a trip to Spain, met Steve Shrolts.... ( Mostly sure I did not spell his last name correct) As we enjoyed Blanes together with the ladies, he was raving about the Assie beer.... Always wanted to try one.

I was not trying to promote,or comment on this particular unit, but merely to try to explain one big benefit, as several riders asked what it would do. I thought a short video would suffice. Sorry, you will just have to trust me that I did not touch the clutch. I might be a fool, but only an idiot would do this one handed. Ha ha.... sorry....

(ps) reason I mentioned " slipper clutch" is that many rider refer to it as such. Once I am allowed to comment on the specifics on this unit, we can discuss the inner workings.

Fine - we'll do this "old cold war double-crossing agent style"...

I'll make some random statements about the F800GS and rekluse clutch and you'll tell me when I'm wrong.

1. The rekluse clutch works just as well on the F800GS as on any other bike
2. The rekluse clutch makes handling tight rocky stuff a cakewalk
3. The rekluse clutch has been super reliable since day one
4. It's the best thing since drive in beer and you definitely buy it

I'm not hearing any protests... so I'll take that all as a yes then
