I am using it on my svart’ 401 for more then two month now and it is the best thing I did except the buying of the bike itselfJanuary 20, 2020 at 10:09 pm #26889
I agree with you 100%
I have the same Rekluse clutch on my SP401 and I absolutely love it. It makes commuting in heavy traffic on busy city streets a breeze. Alongside the lowering kit, it’s the best modification I’ve done to my bike. Although I really love the cast alloy wheels, heated grips, hand guards and throttle paddle too.
Myy only problem is that now I want a Rekluse clutch on my MT-07 too.January 20, 2020 at 10:26 pm #26891Luwys007Participant
what exactly is a rekluse clutch and what exactly does it do for your bike and ride quality ?January 21, 2020 at 12:14 am #26892MtnwrksParticipant
I agree I love mine too. I do feel a little lazy at times when riding with friends but that passes fast.April 9, 2020 at 5:49 am #28401JherrildParticipant
I hear you guys saying it’s the best upgrade you’ve made- do you feel like it’s overpriced for what it is though? $600 feels a little steep for what seems like essentially new clutch plates…April 29, 2020 at 6:46 pm #28763Bobby BParticipant
How is the install on these? It it DIY or take it to a shop kind of job?April 30, 2020 at 3:23 am #28766DryguyParticipant
I ordered mine a few days ago and plan on installing it myself. Rekluse has a DIY video of a Duke clutch swap on YouTube with step by step instructions. It seems pretty straight forward. Did you guys order if from the forum? How long did it take to get it?August 25, 2020 at 7:15 pm #31489
I was reading on the Rekluse site that the clutch play should be checked before each ride.
Wasnt sure if that applied to dirt bikes or street bikes or both.
How do those of you who have one go about it?August 25, 2020 at 10:17 pm #31493
Never checked it, not had any problems. Dealer set it up for me when they installed it. It operates fine, every time. But it is more “draggy” when the oil is cold, once the engine oil is warmed up it’s perfect. I did note the clutch lever feel, pull and position when I picked up the bike, and I’m pretty sure I’d notice if it changed. The dealer did say not to adjust the clutch lever freeplay like it says in the bike’s manual, as that adjustment and setting is for stock (non-Rekluse) clutches. My dealer is very familiar with these clutches, so they check it for me at each service.August 29, 2020 at 10:56 am #31564
Put it in, and it’s awesome.
Way better than I expected.
Took me much longer than I thought because the right side foot peg holder was so close to the one clutch cover screw that a socket wouldn’t go over it. This resulted in having to re-adjust the peg mounts both sides, and the exhaust mounts. On the positive side the new foot peg position improved the rear brake lever position (clockwise rotation, peg up/brake down).
Made a sticker to match, let’s see how long it hangs on.August 30, 2020 at 4:05 am #31567SiscoParticipant
what is it like when you change gear? do you still need to pull the clutch in?August 30, 2020 at 8:13 am #31570
I’m glad you like it, I thought you might as they are just awesome pieces of kit.August 30, 2020 at 9:09 am #31572
Initial impression is that gear shifting remains pretty much unchanged, so just like the stock bike the clutch is a preferential thing.
With the Rekluse you can click it into 1st from N without the clutch.
It’s basically like the clutch is always pulled until the centrifugal force makes it bite.August 31, 2020 at 9:06 pm #31597
If I want to get ahead of traffic at the lights, I put the bike in 2nd gear while stationary, and then whack the throttle wide open and let the Rekluse do it’s stuff!
Awesome!September 1, 2020 at 3:18 pm #31615
So i had a question for those of you with the Rekluse, when you are in 5th at 4k rpm and punch it, does it slip the clutch?
I got a service today and the mechanic pointed out that it slips in fifth at low revs and I should adjust it, but I thought that its only the nature of the clutch to slip at low revs.
