EFM Auto Clutch

Has anyone fitted an EFM Auto Clutch to their 690? I emailed EFM about it being a slipper clutch and they said that it doesn't matter, just send the clutch unit into them and for $600 they have it sorted in a week!

I'd be interested to know how well it works if you get one.

Loved my rekluse in the 525. Had the z-start pro...normal clutch feel if you wanted it, almost impossible to stall.

Was disappointed they don't have one for the 690.

first I have ever heard of it. Rekluse apparently gave up on making one for the 690 years ago for reasons I do not remember. An autoclutch in the 690 would make some things nicer.

I had an EFM auto clutch on my 02 300, nowhere near as good as rekluse.

I'm curious though, as their design extends (or at least did) the width of the clutch mechanism, which they fix by sending a ring to extend the clutch cover, how have they gotten around that on the 690, seeing as there is no clutch cover?

Maybe we can get a group together (after your prototype ) and get a lower price with volume. I would be interested and will try and contact them to get some more info (anti-stall only, keep clutch lever, override to bump start (remember no kicker and no bump start with some auto clutches)).

Cheers,

But you can't roll start a bike with an auto clutch - whether ReKluse or this mob - can you ... ?

That's a big consideration with a 690, as most other bikes fitted with these clutches also have a kickstarter ...

My Berg 390 didn't have a kickstarter, and one wasn't available for it - for that reason alone I wouldn't have fitted an auto clutch ...

I really hope that's a concept...

But the Husky is the only one with multi-link suspension.

Ah, but you can...I have the Rekluse Core EXP auto-clutch with the externally adjustable Rekluse slave on my FE390, clutch feels and works normally, no "soft lever" of the zStart. With a simple small allen wrench and a few turns externally at the slave cylinder the auto-clutch is disabled (closes the gap) and you can use it like a normal clutch and push start/pull start/wheel-to-wheel start the bike just fine. A few turns and back to auto. The Core EXP auto works way better than the old zStart Pro's, of which I've also had a few. Wish they made it for the 690.

+1, and change O ring (it was discussed on: http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/730...linder-o-ring/ ) .

For enduro riding i'd prefer the PDS. I don't mind it on the track either to be honest. Linkage adds no value for my skill level and feeling.
