Rekluse 3.0 kit burn???

Bought the Rekluse 3.0 Kit and fix it on my 2012 KTM 990 Adventure with 50000km mileage. Finally got my Rekluse BURNED plus stock friction plates at 57000km. What is the possible coz? Anyone experience this? Oil jet looks good.... stock friction plate looks good when installing brand new Rekluse Kit.....What when wrong?

Haven't had one on the 990 but I did have one on my 520. My guess is simply 100 hp.

possible wrong adjustment of freeplay as described in the installation manual

Take note of where it is at on the slave and compared with the recommended settings as well as on the clutch lever.
of course, now that your plates are dead, it might give you readings that could be off.

Even if it was set up properly in the first place, some operators dont have a good feel with what is happening inside their clutch whilst the Rekluse is doing its thing.
As ADVill said, 100hp and 300kg, it wouldnt take much to smoke it.

That's true. Yet I have 20k miles since installation of the 3.0 and much more with the 2.0.
Mostly loaded and a large portion offroad

Rekluse

Question, why fit a Rekluse to a big bike like the 990, with that much power/torque shifting so much weight, I expect you can burn the plates easily.

I really want one for my 950 but I ride it a lot of time on single track and exploring. I've done a couple of hare scrambles and find I was stalling in some corners and loosing time (I have a rekluse in my 450 and love it). Being able to work my way over/around obstacles and not having to worry about the clutch would make life much easier. If you are riding harder stuff and not stalling the bike, you probably don't need one. Riding the 950 in technical stuff takes a lot of my attention and not having to worry about stalling would be great. I"m not Jimmy Lewis. ;)

as others said, setup is pretty crucial to performance on Rekluse clutches. With the power on tap, it would be easy to roast the clutch if you have slippage when you shouldn't.

The Rekluse CORE just isn't a good fit with the LC8. If you can get your hands on one of the Z-Start Pros for the LC8 you'll be much happier...

Thanks for the advice guys... I guess at the moment I shall wait what Rekluse have to say. But seriously thought its not ideal on a 100hp bike.... thinking of setting it right on the installation procedure would make alot of different. Well juz plain unlucky. But im still enjoying rekluse on my 450exc. Any tips on making the the clutch lever smoother. Really hate with the clutch pump on my arm.....

I had the z start pro. And the 2.0. Now the 3.0.
By far I prefer the 3.0....
Especially the ability to jump start the bike with the EXP
No issues with the 100+HP whatsoever

I would have of thought that if it's set up properly the hp wouldn't make any difference. The only difference between the stock clutch and the rekluse is the idiot that's trying to modulate the clutch and getting arm pump vs. a preconfigured system that's the same each time. :)

I really like the one in my 450, and feel that it would improve my technical riding on the 950 as well. then again I tend to drag my bike places it's probably not designed for... :)
