    Technical question about Rekluse clutches.....Which one do I need...???

    Right, as the chance of getting a Rekluse second hand is obviously NIL, I will have to bite the bullet and get a new one...

    Anyway, the whole point of this is to be able to have the Left hand rear brake setup, and not fanny about at the top of those steep gnarly climbs...

    Now....I have been looking into things and am a bit confused (I am getting conflicting info )

    • Can I keep a clutch lever along with the extra brake lever on the left bar?
    • Do I need the Z-Start or the Z-Start Pro?
    • If I lose the clutch lever, what happens at the point where the clutch hose would have gone to, is it blanked off?

    Thing is I would prefer the 'Pro' as it comes with the clutch basket and is easier to fit and maintain, but I want to make sure I buy the right stuff....

    So I suppose I am saying....What do I need to get that gives me Left hand rear brake and the Rekluse clutch?

    Bike is a 2006 250exc (2t) it has a brembo clutch M/C and brembo rear brake M/C

    Cheers, Dave

    With the Brembo clutch you can use the master cylinder as the LHRB.

    Cheapest route is to use a long brake hose from master cylinder direct to rear caliper.

    Slightly more complex is a hose from master cylinder to a special adapter in the rear footbrake master cylinder so you can use either foot or LHRB. Handy when you are parked on a hill and need both hands free for goggles, maps etc. The adapters are about £80 and I have a spare one

    I have hose specs and lengths if you need them, I usually get Goodridge or Venhill or HEL to make up the hose.

    To get a LHRB and clutch lever gets a bit involved. Me and PecGaz have tried to come up with something, not cracked it yet.

    Closest thing I have seen is a perch with a pipe on it to allow conventional master cylinder to be mounted above normal one

    Cheers Kev, that is the sort of info I was after

    How do you run yours...? have you done away with the clutch lever altogether and which kit did you use, z-start, or Pro? and what happens at the engine end of the clutch hose?

    I may be interested in the adapter for the rear master to keep the rear foot pedal just need to see how I am going to go about it...

    I have a deadline of 3 weeks to get it sorted as I want it in for when I go to the Isle of Man in August...

    Cheers, Dave.

    I have a LHRB, no clutch lever. I use the adapter for foot and LHRB.

    I use original Z start.

    Connect the old rear brake hose to the slave (with no fluid in it) and run it up under the tank. Put a foam ear plug in the end where the banjo bolt goes so it can breathe yet keep crap out.

    Cloose the medium engagement speed setting, leave the pushrod in, then add gaskets under the slave to reduce the engagement speed till its bang on. No need to mess about taking the clutch to bits adding washers inside it then

    You can download the fitting instructions from Rekluse website.
