Re: What is your experience with Rekluse Auto Clutches?

If the ergos on any bike don't fit I have all kinds of problems due to dozens (literally) of broken bones in hands, fingers, and wrists. A change in cruising speed or direction, wind speed or direction, long grade etc., requires adjusting, so that's why I don't do windshields. If the hand grips are in the right place all I need is three sets of foot pegs and a flat enough seat to slide back and forth a bit and I'm good for 16 hours of riding stopping only for fuel, food, and restroom breaks. Take away adjustability, and I'm aching in 30 minutes. That's why I prefer the flat, old school seats.
Only do that which is right.

Re: What is your experience with Rekluse Auto Clutches?

I move all over the place, stand up, slide around, slide off sideways a bit, etc,... I am good for about 15-20 minutes in one spot. However, I can generally stand longer and more comfortably than sit, on either the KTM 530 or BMW 1200 GS. I can go for hours standing on the GS.

Getting the hand levers in the right positions will also make a BIG difference on hand/wrist issues. They have to work for both sitting and standing. I see a lot of folks that will get them fine for sitting, but WAY too high for standing, which causes the wrists to really have to bend upward to reach the levers. That causes a LOT of strain and can cause pain very quickly.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

I've got that also from a crash. Also, have exercise for the shoulder using Thuro Band. I'd have to show you those.

Re: What is your experience with Rekluse Auto Clutches?

I put the Rekluse Clutch on my KTM 950 Super Enduro. If your looking for a hot rod dirt bike then the 950SE is the bike for you. If your looking for a bike that fits because your 6'8" and 40" inseam,then the 950SE is it. I personally bought the 950SE because it fit my size. I didn't buy it for the power. It is almost impossible to put the 950's power down on a technical trail in it's stock configuration. That's why I put the Rekluse clutch in a 100+hp dirt bike. It totally changed the way the bike handles at low speed. If someone built a 350/450 dirt bike the size of the 950SE, I'd buy it. I also had to redo the suspension because it was way too rough on rocky single tracks. I've got the 950SE just about perfect now. It can handle slow technical terrain and still blast across the desert at 125+ mph if you need to go that fast ! ! !

When your 6'8" with a 40" inseam, it's hard to find a bike that fits ! ! !
