rekluse clutch adjustment

Recommended Posts

Installed a Rekluse clutch on an 03 yz250f. The clutch works great but after 5 or 10 minutes of riding it starts to creep while stopped and in gear and sometimes stalls when at rest and in gear, I have tried every adjustment between the clutch cable tension and perch adjuster. It's hard to shift into neutral as well. It's like it needs more cable tension but I have tried that. It seems to get better when it cools down. The clutch still works great while riding. Everything is checked and rechecked according to specs/instructions. I have called Rekluse on this as well. I have installed 2 on CRF450's that work flawlessly.

Any suggestions? Maybe 1 narrower clutch plate? :naughty:

did you modify the clutch hub?

What type of oil are you using? Stock clutch plates suck by the way, that could be your problem. Honda CR125 plates work much better than stock Yamaha plates.

Actually, I think the clutch type makes a little more difference than the oil. On mine and the stock clutches, I couldnt get the creep out of it. With the Honda clutches it has worked great.

I just went all out with my Rekluse rebuild on my 02 YZ280f:

8 new Honda CRF250 Frictions,

6 new Yami Drive plates

A Hinsen inner boss (to go with the Hinsen Basket that was already there.)

I set the clearance at about .037 for starters.

It feels great so far, instant hook up, and I can shift into neutral while I am stopped. So far so good...

It was perfect! With the new friction plates I was at the minimum at .035". it worked perfect, should break in even better.
