I have a 250XC-F (well, now it is a Thumper Racing 300) with a Rekluse. For the past 10 months I have been trying to get it adjusted so that it engages right off idol. I have tried all of the various settings, but with no luck. I have also gone through 2 sets of friction plates. We have suspected for a while that there is too much pressure being applied to the plates. Our suspicion was confirmed last night. We removed the clutch master cylinder from the bike and started the bike and put it in gear. It immediately engaged off of idol. We also noticed that you have to push pretty hard on the master cylinder to get the throw out rod to fit inside when reinstalling the cylinder. So we decided that we would shorten the throw out rod in order to relieve some of that pressure. We ended up grinding about 2 mm off of the throw out rod and now the clutch engages perfectly off of idol. However, now when the bike is just sitting in neutral and if you pull in the clutch lever multiple times, it pumps up. It never used to do this, but the pressure is relieved as soon as you get the bike going. Does anybody know if this is a normal characteristic of the rekluse or did we screw something up by shortening the throw out?
