    Have one on my TC450 and love it on technical trails. Just in the midst of installing one on an XR1200 that sees it's share of off road use. If one was avalible for the F650/800 I'd have one on mine as well.

    Well guys I live in Boise. I saw a posting by Motorfiets in a local thread about needing an F800GS. I am happy to say my F800GS is going into Rekluse on Monday for R&D. Will be there about 2 weeks for the measurements, etc. Will schedule again after a prototype is built and installed. I'll update you guys as it progresses and certainly when I get to play.

    Thank you sir for three things.

    1- being nice enough to volunteer your ride for R&D
    2- forcing me to spend money to help a struggling economy
    3- making me a better human being or least act like one so my wife won't kill me when I buy this...

    Today after making arrangements, delivered my F800GS to Rekluse. They will have it for the next two weeks. I have to say they are a great group of guys at Rekluse, They are as excited to get started on this as you all are in having come to a point this is actually happening. They obviously want this to be successful and feel there has been plenty of community interest to warrant this at this time. I will keep you advised and if I get any insight or progress. They did ask to be patient in posting information too early about the progress and/or development. This post is just to confirm to you all that progress is actually happening! :clap

    Would some one explain the Rekluse clutch to me from the rider experience perspective? I have looked at the website and what I gather is that the clutch releases when you go very slowly -- slow enough to stall the engine. But -- do you still get engine braking going down hill? What about up shifting, downshifting? OK on the road, in the twisties, at highway speeds etc? Thanks in advance and please forgive my ignorance. I have some left hand tendon issues and so less clutching is of real interest to me.

    Your going to love the Rekluse with your hand issue, as it lowers the clutch lever force from zero at idle(you don't need to use it at all), to very light through mid rpm to still lighter than stock at high rpm. Engine braking down hill is still good but you need to keep the rpm up a bit above the decoupling rpm. Takes a bit of practice but once you get it, it becomes natural. I do all my up and down shifting without the clutch when off road(just tweak the throttle) but use the clutch on road( but with its much lighter one or two finger pull it does not require anywhere near the effort). Hope this helps.

    SO awesome, thanks for pushing this guys. My wife has a hard time with her clutch hand, this may be the solution for her F798. :freaky
