    Looking for feed back on Recluse on an E

    Hey Ron, I recently installed a recluse on my 14s model...really like it but find the lack of engine braking somewhat creepy on those steep downhill right turns when you've got to have your foot on the brake. Tried retrofitting a left hand lever using bicycle parts to the adjuster on the master cylinder. Worked, but unless I put two hands on the lever I can't get the pressure on the cylinder. Is there something out there that simply bolts on or did you come up with that setup yourself . If so, how did you do it?

    Rekluse clutch

    Dude....yeah I know it's cheating but 90 percent of the guys I'm riding with are on orange bikes. Not to mention half my age....I need all the help this deezer geezer can get! The auto clutch is definitely a game changer.

    Rekluse clutch

    Ok so I pulled the whole clutch pack out and it all looks good. No burnt smell or glazing. Rekluse looks same as when it went in the 1st time. Changed oil and filter and rode for an hour on the street. Oil looks like honey still. Hopefully stays that way. Mind blower you want to get that puppy in your bike! It changes the whole dynamic when on tight technical trails. You can hang on with both hands and forget about the clutch altogether. And no stalling which was my main reason for getting it in the first place.

    Rekluse clutch

    So I talked to the local Rekluse guru up here in British Columbia and he suggested I pull it off and give it a sniff. If not burnt smelling put it back,change the oil and I'm good to go. Going to do this tomorrow in the daylight . Apparently not many people using these in Drz's up here.

    Rekluse clutch

    Just put a rekluse exp into my 2014 s model. After about 6 or 7 hrs the oil has gone inky black.. Set-up on the clutch seems fine (free play gain etc.) Going to change the oil and filter and hope it clears up. Is this normal or what. I'm used to seeing honey colored oil even at change time.

    Tires Pirelli MT21

    Mounted an m21 90-90-21 and a 120-80 18 about a month ago ...lower profile on the rear gives you a little less clutch in the single track but a little less speed on the highway. Really a great tire however the rear is already a lot less robust than it was!
