I wasn't given any instruction on operation of the clutch after Rekluse was installed (Rekluse paperwork is basically for install purposes only) Dealer installed. 1st ride with Rekluse was in the mountains of TN and it performed flawlessly. I still find myself using the clutch to shift out of habit and it's just a smoother shift...if your just cruising shifting without clutch is no problem but when I ripping on it I will hit the clutch, just something about meshing gears at 10,500 R's makes me nervous lol.
And to go even further off topic, I think I read that you ride in muddy conditions. Have you experienced any overheating issues? I did a radiator relocate this last weekend, I was collecting a lot of mud/dirt in the rad. and I am by no means a mud rider and avoid the deep stuff if possible but I'm not scared to give her ****...but not too much because I'm still waiting on my front bumper/winch mount
Cool. I do ride in muddy conditions but I dont "mud bog" purposely really a whole lot. . I was concerned about the rad getting clogged for sure but no problems yet.. having said that, it's cold here now in wisconsin so I wouldnt expect any issues.. also I wont be putting many miles on it now until spring. I've only been on one big ride and a few trips to the atv park in town.. the rest i've been confined to the 100 acres at home.. only have 450 miles on now. I really cant wait to put some miles on in the summer!.. thinking about a possible road trip down south somewhere with it this winter if our snow sucks for snowmobiling here like they are saying it will.

I have 30" Mongrels on mine. I fried my clutch with the Rekluse installed in 70 miles. I just installed the Barnett clutch pack yesterday. We'll see how long it lasts. I also mostly run trails, hill climbs, and crawl. If this new pack burns, then I will for sure send out the tranny to Tubeworks for the re-gearing.

yes let me know how that works for you please..after crawling around in my ravine here at home yesterday I could definitely see how the Rekluse would burn up some clutches especially with taller tires...it is awesome out in the field though

Is there a break in process for clutches sort of the same way there is for engines and such? If so I think that might better the chances of an ideal outcome with that clutch.

Looks like 27/28" are working best so far. I have seen paddle setups in the 26" and most seam to be happy with that. While I was at the WORCS Race in Taft. I notices every one running 28"
