Does it also offer manual engagement for those who want to have a third lever on the bars (or fourth if they ride an XR600!)?

I think you all should go here. I'm by no means a Rekluse efficienado, but I can tell you I love them. http://www.rekluse.com/offroadproducts.shtml

A few others do also, and I think this says a lot about the system.

Rekluse attended the 2013 King of the Motos. Rekluse riders Cody Webb (1st) Graham Jarvis (2nd) Destry Abbott (4th) Bryan Roper (5th).

That event was rode with an auto? I'm all in if engine braking is indeed preserved.

Thanks

If I ever get a real dirt bike I think it would be on the short list of needed items. I love the idea of them just on the freeing up your foot mindset alone. I don't really see myself using my pig of a KLR in such a way that would require one, it just isn't made for that.

Haha, funny John, I was thinking about renaming this the auto clutch Q & A thread......I need to trade bikes with Rob so I can see if I need to switch to the lazyman clutch and rock crawler rear tire.

You guys do relaize that having a Rekluse allows you to free up one hand for drinking, Right?

That's reason enough by itself.

Also moving the throttle to the left side with an auto clutch makes for more trouble free front wheel braking. Frees up the right hand for

one thing Rob is not mentioning about the auto clutch (Rekluse) is that if you stall your bike on a hill/incline/boulder, when the bike is not running it won't be in gear(or engaged in gear). your bike will freely roll backwards. unless you grab brake.
this is my one big reason not to get a Rekluse. BUT, if (and when) i get a Rekluse, i will install a left hand rear brake lever and keep my clutch lever and keep my rear foot brake.

now let's get back to our regularly schedule thread...

It is not an on off switch. It is centrifugal in nature. So you can be in a higher gear and at lower rpms it is not engaged one to one. This is why even MX guys like them. Allows going into a corner in higher gear and having a longer acceleration out of the corner without shifting.

I can do the same thing with a manual clutch but all that slipping causes HUGE heat from friction and you will over heat the bike in nasty terrain. Rekluse adds no heat and gives you the climbing slip you need when in too tall a gear.
