Tvl scs

My 2019 TVL with the SCS is having problems letting the SCS dis-engage. The bike has 4K miles and after a 700 mile high speed run two days ago, I started noticing that the clutch would not let go when coming to an idle on de-acceleration. It killed the motor. Now, it won't disengage at all. I am back to using the clutch lever let everyone else in the motorcycle world. I've gotten pretty used to that no clutch thing.

Anyone have any idea how the Rekluse gets adjusted? A trip to the dealer is pretty far away if this is simple.

BTW: oil level is fine.

Not sure this is a simple adjustment..... google how the clutch works (same basic system as many dirt bikes are using). You may need some internal bits replaced....

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I don't have this system on my '16 TV; but have researched rekluse clutches.
First thing I would do is try to find a service manual. If your bike came with a flash drive a manual should be on it.

Failing that; the MV SCS clutch may adjust similar as KTM or Husky

Either way I hope you can get it resolved in a timely manner.

Forgive my foolery but being a new bike surely it's a warranty issue...?

Thanks for the link to the Rekluse web site manual. I had visited the site earlier but I had difficulty finding something related to adjustment. The referenced article clearly explains how the unit is adjusted. In looking at the SCS unit and the web manual, the procedure looks the same.

The three manuals provided on the flash drive and the printed manual that came with the bike make absolutely zero reference to the SCS.

Yes, the bike is under warranty and the closest American dealer is over 100 miles away. I am fairly certain that dealer also knows very little about the SCS. My other option is a Vancouver, BC dealer who has dealt with the SCS but crossing the border this time of year is onerous.

I'm calling OC Motorcycles in Costa Mesa, CA today to speak with their service department. I bought the motorcycle there and they are very good. I need to find out if I need a gasket for the SCS cover.

Glad I could potentially help.
My guess you could probably reuse the SCS cover gasket, even if paper or composite material. Providing that it does not disintegrate upon removal of the cover.
Hopefully it's an o'ring in which case is, IMO, 99% reusable.

Sorry no help on the MV side but I did have a Rekluse on my KTM. The new versions {mine was older and had different spring tensions} of the Z Start Pro had and adjuster on the Slave cylinder that moved the friction zone for lack of a better term to control the engagement and manual clutch operation. I don't know if any of those features would translate to the SCS system but do take a look at the slave cylinder to see if there is a hex key adjuster in the center.

The latest information from the dealer about the SCS should make prospective buyers stop and think about this thing.
Apparently, there are some items called sleeves that require replacement every 4500 miles. This is just about where I am right now. The first sleeve service is courtesy of MV Agusta. The dealer also sent me a PDF version of the latest B3 service manual (Edition 4 dated October 2018) which contains the complete service for the automatic clutch. The routine doesn't look all that complicated.
However, that really isn't the issue. An accomplished sport touring bike with the MV Agusta record of reliability should really be able to cover distances greater than 4500 miles. My bucket list 'across the US and back' check box shouldn't have to include a service stop at one of the relatively rare MV Agusta dealers.
Not entirely sure what happens if I just ignore the lack of the automatic clutch feature and just use the machine as a regular clutched unit. it seems to work just fine. It's actually much easier than that grabby clutch on my 2016 TVL. Guess I'll send another email to the dealer and find out.
BTW: I'll gladly make the service manual available to the forum if someone can tell me where to send it.

Good to know.
I did a cross country tour a few years back on my Sprint, I had to arrange a service visit in Washington. It was just an oil change, but things like service requirements are often overlooked by people when they plan longer tours.
There is a learning curve for successful motorcycle touring.
