who has crf450 05 with rekluse need some help

Recommended Posts

MY problem is the bike will stall when throttle is cracked open quickly i have tried air screw setting out and in and nothing helps maybe this problem is inheirant to the crf 450 as i can also make it stall in neutral i know most four strokes will do this. the problem is when ridden with a regular clutch the rpms dont drop as much when you brake into a corner then momentarily crack the throttle open as you have manually pulled in the clutch but with the rekluse if you do the same thing the bike will stall . Any ideas would be appreciated jetting is 168 main 42 pilot bike has about 2 hours on it . ps just riding around and locking up rear brake wont cause bike to stall and clearance on clutch is .036" with heavy spring in lever mounted adjuster. this problem only happens with a quick blip of throttle at low rpms like you would do in neutral

make sure your accelerator pump is not pluged , the engine wont take quick throttle with out a shot of fuel

I also agree with the idle speed. Also the clutch itself needs approx. 1-2 hrs of good hard break in time and do not forget to check the install gap afterwards. Idle speed should be set at 1700 RPM +/- 300.

clutch has about an hour on it ive tried the higher idle setting didnt help much . Let me explain very clearly what is happening bike is still new has total about 2 hours on it one hour with rekluse. when you come into a rough whooped out corner sand corner your on brakes back may be locked up then you transition from standing to sitting as you laying bike over and you give quick burst of throttle to pull you out of corner like you would normally do but feathering clutch to maintain balance and corner speed etc. The bike dies sometimes not all the time but enough times i would say in same corner 2 out of 5 times . Basically what is happening is the clutch brings the engine RPM down to low before disengaging then when given a quick throttle burst it will stall bascially is this just something i have to live with as it mainly goes away when i have stall speed very high but its very annoying to ride the bike like this IM at my wits end here if i cant get it to work i think i will send the rekluse back Im going riding again tomorrow so any tips would be appreciated Thanks guys.

Ps i did trying calling rekluse customer support and all i got is some kid though very nice he really didnt have very good technical support IM not sure if this is the same with all the rekluse clutches installed on fourstrokes im trying to ride moto with it but did notice even trail riding i could make bike stall as well I have the heavy spring in clutch adjuster on cable and have run anywhere from the spring tension from hardly any threads showing to cranked up till there is about 10 threads showing. when clutch is working and not stalling i really like it i really dont want to give up on it but if it keeps stalling in corners i see knee surgery in the near future again.Maybe the owner of the company can reply to this HELP.ps i have checked installed gap several times the first time after the install with the plates recommend in kit i had around .042' then put in the adjustment plate the single one that comes in kit and it was .036" then rechecked it again and it maintained that .036" gap maybe .037"

Do you ride moto or trails? I havent tried the softer spring yet maybe i should ps when your bike is idling in gear are you able to get it in neutral? i know i have to still pull clutch in manually to obtain neutral. Im at sea level and its about 40degrees here.

Just got back from riding it was much better today still would stall once in a while though from what i can figure out when coming into a left hand corner and brake dragging which i do on occasion the bike bogs a bit then will stall sometimes, when not brake draggin its fine I think i just may have to adjust my riding style a bit the higher idle speeds did help. IM thinking of trying the light spring and putting more tension on it instead of the heavy spring with less tension as with the idle running higher does drag quite a bit. Ps using lever mounted adjuster . PPs Damn this crf450 is the best bike ive ever owned the handling is perfect.its been a while for this now old guy for riding again as last time i raced competively was in 2000.oh and bike does seem to run better at about 2.25 to2.5 turns on airscrew.

      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?
