With only 150 miles on my bike (XR 650R) I burned the stock clutch going up some extremely steep and narrow switchbacks. I replaced the clutch with a rekluse z-start a few days ago. I like it so far, pluses outway the minuses and makes difficult riding conditions 100% easier, but it has some shortcomings that I hope someone might have some tips on. Shifting from 1st to second uphill and under power can be very notchy. Downshifting on a steep downhill is the same. Despite being off the power the clutch is still sometimes engaged (engine compression) going downhill and the bike doesn't want to shift. The clutch is properly set up, doesn't creep at idle or slip on acceleration. Often I feel I'm forcing a shift up or down on hills. Anyone have any riding tips for smoothly shifting this setup, like what throttle/power load works best under certain conditions? I also got the optional clutch perch adjuster but it seems to do almost nothing, maybe delay the stall speed just a little, not worth the $85. It certainly does not "optionally overide the clutch" as advertised. BTW I bought from TT and was pleased with the quick service!
