@Hopey - In regards to your flame outs; being a bit rich (TPS too high) can contribute to flame outs. Double check that your idle is high enough, then try going down a bit on your TPS and see if that helps. Read this: Also in regards to the Rekluse; I just got a Rekluse myself, only have 1 ride on it. But ironically it's the super slow almost-stopped riding where I'm missing the manual clutch. It's odd to have to rev the bike to get enough RPM for the clutch to start biting, when previously I kept the bike more or less at idle. It's going to take some practice to get that right while doing stop & go figure 8's for example, and other super slow riding. But once the bike is rolling, the Rekluse is a lot of fun! You can just forget about the clutch and ride it like a giant pit bike. From a dead stop in 2nd gear if you twist it open you get an instant wheelie. 3rd gear starts the launch is a little soft but it will pull right into a wheelie as the clutch locks up, so I'm thinking of trying a 3rd gear start for my next race (15/52 gearing).
