Would be a very nice feature to have on an overlanding bike, especially when you hit a congested city like lima etc.

I've ridden a wr450f with the Rekluse set up and it was brilliant.

I'm calling BS on their six-month delay. How it went from three more weeks to six months in one fell swoop is disappointing, as well as frustrating. Another riding season come and gone. Should have expected it. And there's certainly a greater likelihood that December will come and go.

It's patronizing and demeaning to not tell us what is going on, and the reason for the delay. These aren't trade secrets that some Chinese company will somehow take advantage of, and beat them to market. Acting like we don't deserve to know the difficulties is very condescending. It's not the Manhattan Project for Chrissakes.

I have a Rekluse on my KTM, and I think it is great, but their paranoia about keeping us in the loop is silly in this case.

IMHO, of course.

As you say, the technology is known, but this was/is not BS. I do believe they were ready to release it, as forcasted, but something happened to on of the beta test bikes,( no no no.... nothing grenaded, it was minor) and off course it had to be investigated, before they will release the EXP. It was unforseen, and so as not to affect production, they delayed the decision a bit longer. Smart move imho. It could be that they decide not to release it for the 8GS.....only they make that call.

That would suck. I don't mind waiting for a finished product, been riding scoots without for a minute or two, won't hurt to ride more. Ordering one for the EXC tomorow

There isnt one.. Revloc was a competitor but Rekluse bought them out.. I think there was a lawsuit involved too

I am being told no from Rekluse. They are going to offer this on the 8GS, but said it might be fall 2013 before they get it going. It has been a few months since I shipped my loaner back to them for inspection. My personal thinking here is that they have a lot of things going, and while they have recognized the need for the 8GS, they want more testing done before release. The later is my personal opinion, where the first is from Rekluse. At this point, we are all waiting.

Crap. I was so holeful....

The 8GS NEEDS this bad. The first gear is way to tall.

Oh well, just have to wait and hope.

Question

What type of terrain are you guys riding on your 800GS's to necessitate an auto-clutch? If anyone can provide pics/video footage of an 800GS that demonstrates the necessity for this type of equipment I'm sure everyone would enjoy it and perhaps gain some clarification on WHY an auto-clutch for this particular 400lb bike needs to be produced. It would be even more effective if it was YOUR pics/video.

I saw some mention of racing earlier in the thread, so link up gentlemen... I need a reference point to judge whether I'm on the OH-OH-OH-I-HAVE-TO-HAVE-ONE list too.

To each their own. I am climbing steep loose stuff.... Stock first is too tall.... Rekluse makes this easier.

Please... We want to start differentiating "needs" and "wants" with our BMW bikes????

If you run technical rocky steep terrain (smokey mountain territory near me) it sure would be a welcomed addition.

NEED? No. I suppose I could get by without it. Same as any other accessory I've strapped on this 500 pound piece of crap.

Given the expense, I'm asking how one might qualify the decision with regard to the riding they do. Video is helpful for me and probably others. Didn't see any harm in that.

No harm, just found it odd as one of the first things I noticed when I bought my F800, and took it off road into some hilly washes, was how useless the first gear is. It doesn't allow for very well slow maneuvering without slipping the clutch a lot.
