Would be best for me (no pickup).

Would 10 am at 700 years be ok?

Many and my perfect bike has 250cc.
Sorry, I´ve made just a few pics. The ride was fine, just a little bit short. So I made the LMS alone at the afternoon. It was just planned to the waterfall and back. But the KLX runned smooth and suddenly, I was down of the hill of true. Shit, I did it very badly with pushing and waterfalls of sweat. And then 1,5km from the top the KLX didn´T accelered anymore. I was scary about my clutch and turned off to an icecold beer at the foot. The KLX runned perfect after that, maybe she was just overhead like me. Next time with 49 or 51 teeth sprocket.

Thanks for the pictures, I like the last one with a well deserved beer! Short ride indeed, Kong haven't ridden for a while he was pretty knackered after 2-3 hours riding

Well done trying LMS on a KLX Harry, that must have been tough. We took Horst up there 2 weeks ago on his Husaberg.

"Lazy way" can you elaborate on that? Essentially you could be concentrating on other controls. I've found myself going faster as a result of it, I definitely wouldn't say I've become lazy. You still retain a clutch lever if required. The biggest pro is having the rear brake control on the left handle bar. Precise brake feel as opposed to my cumbersome right foot.
Yes it doesn't go down well with the old school enduro die hards (bless em'), however I see it as progress, after all (disputedly) the best Enduro rider in the world at the moment, Mr Jarvis, uses one......

Bloody humorous!!!!!

Guys you got the name all wrong. Its actually orginally called a "fanny clutch", coined by the esteemed muppet Luke.

Can we get stickers like that made up?? I reckon all using the Rekluse have to wear them on the helmet. Dunno Johnny I reckon its lazy. One less control you have to modulate as often. Lazy, easy, call it what you like but I love it when I'm knackered................................which is usually 200 yards up the trail.

You've normally broken your arm before 200 meters?

Yeah... I will be honest and say when I saw your lever setup I thought that was primary being still clutch and the mini lever as a brake rather than the other way around which I am unsure I want.. I for sure wish to retain foot brake and think I wish to retain manual clutch as an optional for fethering it into the band and on the pipe...

Main reason it isnt fitted is the double life thing leaves me no time for much else.. Only back a couple of weeks and already on countdown to departure and a couple of weeks in Boracay etc.

Honestly I would have one if I had a MX bike for the trails to avoid stalling and wasting half my energy kicking the bike. But the cheap one (EXP), the one where all you do is replace 2 clutch plates.

Give it to me and ill have it set-up in a few hours.
You can retain foot lever, clutch (for feathering the bike into the ground - believe me!!!) the Rekluse does this automatically. They also have a different double lever set-up released which i might try on the KTM.

I bought one, installed it on the bars and then vomitted. The most horrific ergonomics ever so bought it back to the US and sold it. The levers were three inches in height apart from each other. Wish I knew you wanted one before I returned, but I like the ergo's of the set-up you have now much better.

What don't you like with your current hand control set-up?
