Default Rekluse back to Manual

Some of yall might remember my post about the Rekluse delete. I was looking to go back to a manual since my new to me bike had the Rekluse EXP on it when i bought it. Well in the mean time i picked up a take off manual Gasser clutch. Since the weather here in TN turned to crap over night i decided to take out the Rekluse and put this manual on back in.

Part of the reasoning is also that i didnt know what i had with the Rekluse (eg. springs, model, basket? etc...) This gave me time to at least see what i did have, really hoping to have the Rekluse basket but nope. Anyway, since i had the complete clutch i pulled out the whole Rekluse clutch with the stock basket. I did measure all my fibers and steels that were on the Rekluse just to make sure it was in spec.

Next, i measured all my steels and fibers that i got from the take off clutch. I wasnt sure if it had Honda fibers or not (it did not). All the fibers spec'd out fine and also the steels except 2. All the steels measure between 1.50-1.51 except i had two magnums at 1.63 and 1.62. This put my stack at 32.83. I have no clue why these would be that much thicker. Needless to say as soon as i put the bike in gear it died even with the clutch lever fully engaged. I wasn't surprised, but being it was a take off i am surprised it ran on the other bike. So back to the garage.

I had purchased an RM thrust washer in anticipation of going with Honda fibers in the future. It measured 1.95mm as opposed to the stocker which was around 2.85mm. I pulled the hub, and put the RM washer on and buttoned it back up. Took her outside and my god this clutch is nice. I can one finger pull to engage, and it doesnt slip or drag at all. Just a 30 minute tester through the woods at the house, so nothing major but man its nice.

I maybe could get the same feel with the Rekluse but i would have to change out the engagement springs and check the wear on the wedges. It currently has 3 red 3 blue. I didn't mic the wedges for wear yet. Im not sure how long its been on the bike. I really wish i could find out who had the bike before the guy i bought it from. Im sure he was on this board. Anyway, im gonna ride the bike with the manual for a while and see if my carpal tunnel can handle it. So far so good though. It sure beats an old cable clutch.

Apparently we're almost neighbors as I live just south of the tn/ga border.

Anyways, I have an 11 ec300 that came to me with a rekluse auto. I tried a lot of things to get it to feel the way I wanted. In the end I ended up buying a rekluse manual pressure plate that was compatible with the rekluse basket already in it.

I haven't looked back. I guess for some people the auto clutch is useful but it just seemed to get in my way.

FYI, the Tusk Honda cr250 clutch kit steels are 1.6mm, not 1.5mm. Fibers are still 3mm. It will take a little mix and match with GG steels or fibers to keep from dragging.

I had a rekluse on my kx250 and was convinced i would fit it to all my future bikes. next bike was a 2010 EC300 and i never even considered a rekluse again. The rekluse did demonstrate the benefits of maintaining momentum over technical rocky sections, but that was an easy skill to carry across to the manual clutch
