Rekluse adjustable-clutch slave question

I recently installed the Rekluse adjustable-clutch slave to go with my previously installed Rekluse Core EXP auto clutch. Pretty sweet to be able to adjust the auto-clutch externally with nothing but a 4mm allen wrench. Plus if the starter or batt died for some reason, spin the allen a few turns and it's back to a standard clutch and can be push-started.

Question: Minor problem, when I went to re-install my Husaberg Hard Parts Case/Slave chain guard it no longer fits because Rekluse runs the bleeder fitting on the side (better spot BTW). I have to run the stock plastic guard again for now.

Is anyone running the Rekluse adjustable-clutch slave and a slave/case guard that fits with it and if so what kind? Thanks.

I guess you missed my earlier posts with the EXACT same setup and questions?

For now, I've gone back to the stock chain guide/guard and drilled a 15mm hole through so I can access the clutch slave adjust.

I queried the guys at Rekluse and they suggested Enduro Engineering's slave guard might work better (or at least is more modifiable), so I'm gonna give that a try. I have one on order, but because of my broken wrist I'm a bit of a cripple right now as I can't ride, let alone wrench.

Sounds like your bike and mine are twins, separated at the end of the production line

Now I am thinking about buying a Husaberg to prepare my next rally bike. The bike is almost perfect as it comes, need only rear fuel tank, and few instruments..

I will not be able to compare these bikes before buying it. I will buy second hand and I wanted to ask if there is any difference in reliability between the 390, 450 and 570.

The about the year. Is there any difference between the models 2008 until the last ones produced in 2012?

About the engine, is there really a sensible difference between a 390 and a 450?

thanks!!!

I was in the Tuareg as well, on the 2012 570 with the large white front shield:





IMO it's the perfect bike for a beginner-advanced rider for a Tuareg style event, only real experts will be able to manage a 690 sized bike on the hard dune days etc. I used the 70 Racing subframe tank and with 12.5 liters never ran out of fuel although it was pretty close a couple of times.

You should go for a 2009-2012 570 model, no noteable differences between them. The 390/450 bikes weigh basically the same and the engine character of the 570 is pretty mellow, so unless you ride only tight stuff I would go for the bigger engine. The significant extra power makes it much easier to ride sand and it's nice to have on the fast gravel roads.

My low pipe and rear safari tank arrived from Oz!




Just a little wear from this little adventure ride called Dakar.

Thanks to Baja Dad for the help in getting the pipe and tank...

Dont think I ever posted photos with the Renazco seat.. it replaced a Seat Concepts low seat.. the Renazco is a solid 1-2" taller..which is a problem for my 31" inseam. But James insisted he couldnt make it any lower and still keep it comfortable. I will probably keep the SC seat on for the muddy, tight, rocky trails here in New England and only use the Renazco when I get out to CO and start doing longer trips on the bike.







For Comparison

Yep, I must have missed it. This thread is a big 'un. At least you've saved me the call the Rekluse ;)

Sorry to hear of the broken wrist and hope it heals well.

I have a few questions out to vendors who handle Bergs and will see what they turn up. For now I too am running the stock guard with a hole in it and will be interested in what you find out on the EE part.

Nice looking seat mrt10x, do you find the leather Renazco helps tone down the intake noise or does it make no difference?

Interesting thought.. I will have to check and get back with you.

Heat Mitigation Mods

Just finished up all of the heat mitigation mods on my 390 last night. Most of these have been talked about on this thread but an idea or two I also learned at the unofficial husaberg forum.

List of Mods and P/N's:
  • KTM Radiator Fan - 81235941044
  • KTM Self Adhesive Tank Heat Shield - U6908817
  • NAPA Coolant Fan Switch - ATM1435033
  • Ceramic Coated Header/Mid-pipe - Internal Ceramic Metallic - External Black Ceramic
  • Akrapovic Factory Slip-On - SXS10450512
  • Engine Ice Radiator Coolant
  • Remapped to the Competition Fuel Map

Overall, I think everything worked well except for the following:
  • Heat Tape vs Heat Blanket: If I could do it again, I may have used the CV4 tank blanket in lieu of the KTM tank heat tape. Part of this is that I was tired as I was applying the heat tape and I don't think my application of it lived up to my expectations. Next time I have the tank off, I am just going to put the CV4 blanket on over the existing heat tape.
  • The fan hasn't turned on yet but I followed the instructions so not sure what could be wrong...I just put on the lower temp fan switch last night and will try again this weekend.
  • The tank shroud fasteners seemed incredibly soft. Stripped one and I was being careful. I will have to get a tap and die set to fix it.
  • I wrapped the wiring bundle from the engine back in a spare tire tube to mitigate friction shorts. Getting this all to fit with the increased size of the wrapped bundle ended up being a major PITA.


Ceramic Coated Header/Mid-Pipe
I had a local shop do the ceramic coating and am pretty happy with it. They used ceramic metallic on the internals for better heat resistance and black ceramic on the outside at my request. The coatings are shown below.




Here is another shot with the bike disassembled and with the midpipe/header and KTM radiator fan fitted.




Factory Akrapovic
And, lastly, here is the Akrapovic slip-on with the spark arrestor and db-killer installed. I may test with and without the db-killer but definitely like the quiet sound. I was debating between this and the Wings exhaust but found a great deal on the Akrapovic.

Hillwalker, looks like it should never a heat problem ever again.

The ceramic coating would probably be enough by itself depending on the temperatures you ride in.

Did you go for a slip on for the bling factor or do you think it allows the bike to run cooler.

My experience with 390's with other slip ons showed no difference in heat, no difference in power or torque (couple were worse with the slip on) but a bit of a weight saving.

This would be the only bike I have not fitted an aftermarket pipe to.

Yeah, I like my OEM 390 KTM slip-on just fine and it's not that heavy really plus has a good Krizman spark arrestor built inside it (the perf plate on the OEM can end is NOT a sparky, just a restrictor that "fell off" early). I really doubt the Akra's or Wings give that much extra power on the 390, maybe better on the 450/570's. My DEI Reflecta-Gold fuel tank under-liner (DIY job) is still holding up just fine after a lot of bad weather and abuse. My ceramic header & pipe coat job is holding up well too and reduces heat a lot. I also have the fan and lower temp sensor and it works great for the slow technical trail riding, never boiled over yet.

Thanks man. I hope this sorts it all out for good.

As far as the Akra, I figured it couldn't hurt and maybe could only help as far as the heat goes. It gets mighty toasty in the summers here in Texas, so I was sort of trying to do everything I could to help the heat situation. Plus....I thought it looked pretty cool.
