August 2019 update

Im not a Rekluse fan on my normal 250/300 2Ts, however riding this 500 2T dinosaur in slow speed tech terrain is a lot of hard work. Even though I have a fairly light cable pull, the MX type gearing means 1st gear is a bit too tall to let the bike crawl slowly without a lot of clutch slip and if you misjudge the clutch pick up point by a fraction its easy to stall. Then its the old school start routine, find TDC, bees-dick past, kick etc...too energy sapping for this old fart....so...I...bought...a.....used.......Rekluse Z Start Pro.....
Fitted it up today and tried it out riding up and down the street and up a little grassy slope with a concrete slab at the top....seems pretty good, let the bike idle, engage 1st gear, a little bit of throttle and whooshka, we're away with a very clean engagement (running 12 tungsten balls and 15 steels).
Checked the rear TuBliss, down to 60PSI after sitting unridden since Kowen in April, but the tyre pressure was where I left it at 4PSI. So I put 110 PSI in the TuBliss and checked the 4 PSI in the Motoz Arena Hybrid.
Going for a Grade 2 ride on Wednesday to give it a run and see if it works better than the last CR500E I rode with a Rekluse, I dont think it was set up with enough of the tungsten balls as it seemed to have a wide, fluffy take up and felt like a CVT with the engine revs going up and down but not the corresponding forward motion until you were at least at 1/4 throttle.
