Rekluse z start pro

Hi guys, just ordered my rekluse z start, whats the best set up for hare scramble ?


Hi guys, just ordered my rekluse z start, whats the best set up for hare scramble ?



I used to run the hard hit, and have the clutch start engaging just above idle speed so there is no delay.


I use the clutch lever when i use the rekluse so this setup works for me.   

I keep mine at high -hard all balls.

I've got the ZSP. I set it up the same as Shawn. Low RPM hard hit. Wouldn't have it any other way. I like to use the manual clutch lever too. But the ZSP gives me stall prevention and I like the super light manual lever. I also like the way it locks the clutch plates as the revs com come up. So it's real difficult to burn the clutch up.

Depends on the terrain you are riding. I ride a lot of technical rocky trash and the low rpm soft engagement works better for that imo. Doesn't spit the rocks or spin the rear wheel excessively without the need for manual clutch input. If you gear your bike high though like 14/46 you might go through clutches unless you have the wr first gear. I run 14/48 with the cr 1st gear without any excessive clutch wear issues but I have heard of others burning up clutches with that setting and high gearing.

Just my opinion though. Not hard to try different settings.

Don't forget to use a good oil, use a tad more than 750ml, and change it often with these settings. Lots of heat generated as well.

If you run the hard hit , clutch will last longer and still easy to control input with the throttle to not get wheel spin.


I use mine on a KX 450  which I did very technical riding. 


Always make sure you are in the right gear , if you run a gear higher you will labour the clutch and generate excessive heat and clutch wear 

I ran my old setup to engage at low rpm and lockup quick. It basically was stall prevention for when I got tired in a harescramble (which was pretty much 2 minutes after the start). I also used the override lever. 15/51 gearing, 150-ish hours on the plates when I sold it, ???? hours on top of that from the previous owner. Plates were still in spec when I parted the bike.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:

      i bought my yz125 from a dealer and they said that the clutch was broken so i bought it and it worked fine it would run move and everything and then it started to act up and now only first gear works barely though. when you put it in first it acts like its bogging down but its not and when you go into gears 2-5 it wont move i dont know whats wrong with it im assuming the clutch is slipping or something if you know please leave me a comment

      Hey guys, I have a 2003 cr125 I bought a couple weeks ago and I'm having a problem with it. The spark plugs die every about 15 minutes, with hotter plugs it will last about 45 minutes. I herd that if the timing is off it can over heat the plugs and burn out the the resistor. Is there any truth to that? The reason I thinks it's not fouling is because when the plug dies it gives no spark no matter how much you clean it, And it shorts out.

      Hi all, First post here. I need some help.
      Ive just bought an 05 yz 125 for a good price but it needs some work. One of the forks has some pretty severe pitting of the chrome on the stanchion towards the bottom near the brake caliper mount.
      Ive found a pair of good condition forks from an 04 yz250 for a very good price, from the research ive done its seems that both the 04 & 05 forks are 48mm but are different, with the 05 fork regarded as being better than the 04, but not as good as the 06 + sss forks.
      Im looking for the cheapest way to get me riding, Will I be able to make the 04 forks work with my 05 triple clamps, brakes, wheel, axle, spacers etc? If not does anyone know what hardware id need to make it work?
      Finally, as a last resort, does anyone know if i could swap the stanchion from the 04 fork into my 05 forks?
      Thanks, Andrew

      I bought a 2006 YZ250, have ridden it 5 times.  It needs some tuning, but I am not sure I'm keeping it so don't want to spend much on it.
      Has fmf gnarly expansion chamber and turbine core silencer.
      I ride about 1000 feet above sea level.
      I'm going to clean the carb and check the jetting.  What is a good jetting for me?  85 main jet?
      Also check the reeds.  Is there a big difference between getting aftermarket reed cage and reeds or just getting a cheap aftermarket set of reeds that fit the stock cage ie.  Boyesen Power Reeds?
      The other things I'm going to do is permatex all the joints in the exhaust system and a compression test.   It was 220psi 5 rides ago so I'm guessing itll be fine.  Its bogging a bit but I'm thinking its carb and definitely exhaust joint related.  
      Let me know if I'm overlooking anything that could make the bike run crisper and more bottom end without throwing much money on parts
