If I understand the operation of a Rekluse clutch correctly, one should still use the manual clutch lever during down-shifting.
Because the centrifugally engaged Rekluse can NOT release itself at normal riding speeds to release during down-shifting. If this is correct information on my part, I think many people have a miss-conception about the Rekluse clutches.
The only real benefit to using a Rekluse centrifugally engaged clutch assembly is it prevents stall-outs at idle & during extremely slow technical situations.
