I commute to the office at least once per week, and it looks like 3000mi is more than I should expect from knobbies. The Pirelli's I put on for WhaDaHala are cracking from accel forces on the center lug.

Try the heidaneau 60's

Had a K60 on my V-strom, but what about the Rekluse

[QU more interested in how the Rekluse works on the street. Does it downshift smoothly, or jerk and scrub three rear tire.
E=crpntr;1 I'll agree the K60 was fantastic 70/30 street/dirt tire, but I'm sticking with knobbies for the TE.

Didn't realize that, good to know, I just assumed there would be none.

+1 on the heidis, 9000 miles on the last set (on the 'lebnfiddy).

thanks again

Crpnty,
Obviously I missed this detailed description of the Rekluse before sending my rerequest. Thanks for the detail. I think I'll get one to install when I replace the cam chain early next year.

There is ALWAYS power to the rear wheel so if your jumping you're revving high. The other is on the pavement. When you're hauling a$$ into a turn and need to downshift, it's not smooth by any means. Someday I will buy another hardcore d/s bike when this one dies a long, long time from now. I will definitely buy another rekluse for it but make sure you can overide the clutch manually with the lever for those reasons. The upside to my current setup is that my left lever is my rear brake which leaves my right foot free to dab when I get squirrely in a right turn. These clutches aren't cheap but I love it. The first time you get almost to the top of a climb and dump it, you'll understand. The bike doesn't die, you just pick it up and keep going . Also has really good engine braking. Buy it! They hold there value if you decide you don't like it and want to sell. If you ever decide to get rid of your te I've got a sweet 07 610sm I'll trade ya! Keep us posted, Jason

Keep your radios tuned. I'm kicking some dates around and hope to post something up shortly. I don't want to conflict with any other rallies in the area so I'm trying to do some research.

I was thinking of holding a tech day at the cabins that weekend but we will be riding and eating too. I think I need to host the Spring Fling in May for the best chance at good weather. With the 2013 Freestyle Worlds going on in September, I won't be able to host a fall event until November so I'm trying to see if I can have an active Spring to make up for it. Nothing is set in stone yet.

Hey Joe !

The 14th Annual Deals Gap 2-Stroke Meet is April 28 through May 4th. f you can, try your best to keep a good amount of calender distance from that event.

Oh and...you all need to come by...

Damn! May 3-5 was the best weekend for me to host this year's Spring Fling. I'll see if I can find another weekend but I have other conflicts later in May and April is looking crowded too.

Well do what you have to do.....It worked out exactly that way last Spring and I was going to ride with you on that Saturday. Family events took over and I didn't make it. Surely that coincidence won't happen again...

Unfortunately April and May are both looking rough for me - system startups in Winston Salem and Fort Worth means my schedule is filling up quickly. However if you can pick/post a date that works for most I'll do my best to make it.

Even if I don't make the fling we need to catch up and ride. Been too long......
