jetting help with rekluse

Recommended Posts

Hi i was riding my new bike for second time today with the rekluse i keep stalling it when coming into corners or when chopping the throttle . its about 40 degress to 45 degrees up here i dont think its the clutch as ive tried to adjust stall speed etc.. and has no bearing on the stalling issue really it helps a bit but i think its to lean maybe air screw adjustment? what you guys think IM running the heavy spring and i know all clearances are right in the clutch I really dont think its clutch , would perhaps turning out air screw half turn help? I had to adjust stall speed really hi to help and makes it a pain to ride around that is why i dont think its clutch plus its easy enough to start in gear. my clearance was double checked at about .036" . apprecitate the help guys im going riding again tomorrow.

Yes, absolutely adjust your low speed fuel screw. We have similar temps here in Boise so out a half or 3/4 of a turn is the norm. Hope this helps :cry:

from your post im not exactly why your stalling but you may try adjusting your idle down somewhat. are you useing the external mount adjuster?? it is posible to have your idle to high and your rekluse set to come on at to low of a rpm. that would cause a stalling situation.

ive tried idle up and down bike is only on second ride i have external perch with heavy spring its not dragging at least i dont think so im pretty sure i really think its in the jetting as will only happen when you give either a quick burst of throttle in corner then shut off immediatly eg coming into a rough sand corner and using the throttle to keep balance after coming off brakes then it just dies. also same thing happens when going up a tight uphill at low rpm and when you crest the top chopping the throttle it will stall. when just ridden around or brake sliding it works perfect as long as you dont chop the throttle on and off.In my manual the jetting is 168 main 42 pilot and 1 7/8 turn out on air screw needle at 4th . when i rode the one time with the stock clutch i never had this problem unless i didnt pull in clutch enough . perhaps there is just enough drag on clutch to kill engine with the cold weather up here and at sea level my feelings are bike is too lean. not sure if air screw will fix this or perhaps a #45 pilot .I have to have the spring in external clutch adjusted to a very hi stall speed to help alleviate this problem but its a pain to ride there slips so much .

im not sure what is going on. i run the light spring in the external perch adjuster and have my idle about normal. my clutch engages just a few hundred rpm above idle. if your ridint along in 2nd or 3rd gear can you lock your back brake up and come to a stop without your bike dying?? if so it sounds like your clutch is disengaging correctly. you could possibly go to 5 tungsten balls.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
