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.

Iím actually ďanti-RekluseĒ myself, says me who also has not one, but two, Husqvarna Autos 😆
however each piston stroke on the CR5 feels like you move forward 1/2 a metre which makes it hard to modulate at low speeds and then you stall.
Then you kick
The Rekluse makes this old tractor fun and a bit less tiring (old man) to ride in tight stuff
Iíve geared it down pretty low as these bikes just run standard MX gearing where 1st gear feels like itís good for 40kph

You'll love the Rekluse. A 500/ Rekluse combo will be awesome.

I had a GAS GAS 300ec with a Rekluse ZStart fitted, turned a great single track bike into an awesome single track weapon. Rear brake steer, Throttle, Rear brake steer, Throttle.

Just Loctite the Kickstarter on
