    Is the beta clutch still being tested by the new owner? And, is he going to drop in to this thread?

    There are two beta clutches being tested. I have the first one of them and need a few more miles on it. My understanding the other person is going to continue to provide some updates to the company as well.

    Here's what I just got

    "Yes we are looking into this clutch. I currently don’t have an ETA, but we will hopefully have some answers soon. We will definitely keep you in mind if we need to find some testers and thanks for the good feedback.

    Here's what I asked

    "F800GS EXP plans? ADV Rider had some good stuff going on but info has dried up. There's a market out there waiting with checkbook in hand:)
    If you are looking for another test pilot let me know, our Adventure Camps are starting in April ( http://advcamp.com/adv-home ) and I think it would be a good test bed. Once the snows clear I will be doing a fair amount of time on unpaved roads loaded like a shebear prepping for hibernation.
    I have the EXP in my YZ450F and as an old retired GI I can only say great things, easily extends my riding time.

    Thanks in advance,

    My F800 is back in to Rekluse this week for measurements and photos. Hopefully a production release for you guys soon.

    I've been riding dirtbikes all my life and this is the first I've heard of an auto clutch. I'm going to check this out further. Interesting.

    Takes some adjustment of riding style and lofting technique. The key is making sure you get the adjustment spot on. Little things like slide turns? Cake. Stalls are a thing of the past.

    Best thing since sliced bread for woods/single track riding. Do not ever test ride a KTM 300EXC shod with a trials rear that has a Rekluse.....you'll end up opening your wallet

    :lol3:lol3...... As the desert southwest offers year around riding..... I was asked to test their setup, but as Ben before me, also was asked not to comment during the beta testing. And that my fiend is hard.....:D:D When this is done however, I will be able to support the system...... On the other hand..... If you do come down here, we are going on a 500 mile ride mostly dirt next Thursday........Gotta bring some Aussie Beer though......:freaky:freaky
