self made auto clutch, and lhrb ?

k I'm going to make an auto clutch for my kdx220 it of bits and pieces. that isn't the question though.

I'm curious about who has a left hand rear brake AND an auto clutch?

does it feel indispensable now?
Will you convert every bike you own?
does every non auto clutch bike seem sub par?




thanks

Yes, especially in the tight stuff.

I don't have a LHRB, but I do have 2 bikes with exp cores. The only time I wished I had the LHRB was on failed hill climbs. It makes swinging the bike around a bit more difficult and slower.

The reality of the situation is not that I need a LHRB its that I dont need the AC when climbing.



And lets see the clutch you are making

I'm only starting the buying process now. I know, that's a real let down, but I'm hoping to gather opinions and experiences as on going

Ah too bad I was hoping for pics.

If you end up basing yours off the core, I know a bit about them.

Plumb in the rear brake to the right hand lever and get a proportioning valve?

Or http://www.klever2.com/ http://www.disabledmotorcyclerider.com/klever2pictures.html
dual lever right hand.

EFM can make you a clutch if recluse no longer has one.

That sounds like a recipe for disaster on an off road bike. Too many situations where the front end braking needs to be done with care so you don't lock up the front wheel and wash it out.
