the Claw Clutch ??

https://www.facebook.com/ClawClutch/...36570571/?t=88

"Those Rekluse type clutches are ancient tech at this point. Basically they sling a weight out when you get above a certain rpm that helps close a "space" built into your clutch basket. So think about it, when you are cruising at the lower end of rpm the clutch force is greatly reduced since the weights are "just enough" slung out to start pulling. This results in wear and heat. Our product fully engages the clutch over a preset time ramp ANYTIME you are ANY above the idle setpoint. SO you don't get this slippage.
PLUS when your bike is off, their system never lets you "be in gear" so your bike can roll away - no push starts if needed.
PLUS - ours has advanced features.... Hole shot launches, Wheelie Assist, Hill Climb Assist, plus any advanced mode we can dream of can be built into the micro controller.
Best of all.... we are universal, you DON'T have to buy another EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE BIKE SPECIFIC auto clutch with our system. AND say you want to go "pure stock", flip ours off and bam just like original, NO CHANGE.
Best of all, no engine disassembly to install unlike the competitors.....We pickup the engine rpm and if it falls just above idle RPM we kick out hydraulic pressure to operate the slave clutch cylinder.. sit and idle. Then if the engine rpm goes up (adjustable, but say 200 rpm over idle) it feathers the clutch out over an adjustable time interval for a smooth take off. PLUS ABOUT 50 other features....

It'd need a lot of sensors on the bike to do anything worthwhile.

See if it gets off the ground first? $1500 USD its in the rekluse money for their high end products.
Certainly looks like a possibility as the next evolution of auto clutches.
Hope he can finance its start up. Very interesting.

Why does anyone with a functioning left hand and basic coordination need an auto clutch on a dirtbike?
I admit to never understanding how Rekluse exists, beyond supplying aids to the disabled.

probably similar reason they removed the clutch pedal in cars. ...

Its not compulsory to run a Rekluse but it gives people a choice.

I hope the Claw comes with an on / off switch to cancel the disengagement if needed.
