You guys get all butt hurt when I say auto clutches and trials tires suck. The wussification of dirtbike riding. Kinda like all the good hard and dangerous trails getting closed at our local riding areas because noobs get hurt. That is all.

Sean, I don't think anyone's butt hurt about what you say, if anything it's comic relief as is most of what I say. It's obvious that we are all just trying to figure out why you shit talk on something you're never tried. And you know, I agree with you about the trials tire for the open desert or track, but there's just no way that a clutched bike, with a nobby and an average or even slightly above average rider will do what a Reklused, trials tired bike will do with the same rider where we normally ride and swear by the set up.

Auto clutch users enlighten me please. I'm a below average to average rider mostly woods but some desert. The desert of course is fine with my clutch but I sure could use some help in the woods as it seems I always ride with people WAY above my skill level. Im on and off the dam clutch constantly, even after gearing the 449 down.

What happens on a climb, first gear, less than walking speed? How does the clutch slip? Better question is how does it modulate at super slow speeds? I understand the sprag clutch theory but just cant get the super slow speed concept. Also a rear brake lever on the left? I would love that!

The clutch is set to disengage at a predetermined RPM when you install it. The clutch does not slip at all. I think mine is set to disengage at about 700rpm's(?). The great thing about an auto clutch is that if you stall your bike on a gnarly climb, you just start the bike back up and power on up without spinning the rear wheel unless you want to. Like driving a two wheel torquey tractor. Getting rid of your clutch lever, allows the rear brake to be put on the bars which gives you ultimate control in the downhills and those crazy right handers when you need your foot on the ground but still need to apply the rear brake. With the above said, there is a system that will allow you to keep your clutch lever and still install the rear brake on the bars. Alot of us are riding no clutch lever with rear brake on the bars and we have removed our rear brake foot lever. Each to his own though.

What happens if you stall on a hill climb in gear?

Nothing, it will always be in gear unless you manually disengage. You just start it up, give it a bit of gas and power on up. You can leave the bike in gear on the kickstand running and it will only slightly surge forward without falling off. Then when you want to roll, just give some throttle.

Basically an on/off switch then? Meaning, if I'm slipping my standard clutch now to keep the engine running but still traveling too fast and using the clutch to slow down but not stall, this auto clutch RELIABLY gets me out of that situation with only throttle use?

Who determines this RPM and is it field adjustable?

Pretty much. When you install/have installed your clutch you will decide where it disengages then depending on your riding. Not field adjustable.

A myth about Rekluse is that you can no longer engine brake, that's horseshit!
