I've installed a Rekluse clutch on my 02 426 and it was awesome for the first couple of hours, but then started to slip badly and I was unable to get it to stop by adjusting the perch adjuster. I've measured the gap as described in the manual and it's nearly 50 hundreths of an inch, which is pretty far out of spec. According to the manual, I need to get one of the fatter friction plates from Rekluse, who have been out of the office over the holidays and have not returned either my phone calls or my e-mails, but what bothers me is that I have no slack whatsoever in my clutch cable, almost as if the cable is too short. What I observe is that even when I adjust both the clutch arm actuator and the stock cable adjuster by the clutch lever all the way out, the slightest movement of the clutch lever moves the clutch actuator arm in the crack case. Is it possible that the cable is pulling the clutch open and causing the measured plate gap to be wider than it really is? If yes, how could the clutch have worked so great for the first couple of hours? I had the dealer install the clutch, which I really regret it (I had them put in a 450 exhaust valve at the same time, which I did not fell comfortable doing) I think if I had done the work myself, I'm sure I'd have a much better handle on this thing. I really love the way the clutch worked, but I'm getting pretty frustrated with Rekluse being in vacation mode.
