Don't be reckless get a Rekluse

I bought a used bike with this product installed already. I was thinking it wasn't a hard corp MX product. I was wrong you can ride faster and in more control with a Rekluse Clutch! Works just like a regular clutch when you want it to for doing wheelies and other things. I will upgrade all of my future bike to Rekluse! \

Amazing Product!

Resisted getting one for years, finally gave in after my riding buddies kept bragging the benefits. Wish I had bought one sooner, amazing benefits, especially on my CR500af, makes it even more fun to ride, it really is like cheating. Cornering is amazing, increased traction control, reduced arm pump, less to think about while racing, and oh yeah, it WON'T stall! A very cool addition to a bike I already loved. It's like having a super powerful, better handling, larger KLX110. But, you can shift with, or without clutch. Haven't had it for too long yet, but if the quality of construction is any indication of durability, it should operate for many trouble free hours.

Made me finally like my CRF450X.

If I would have bought this first would not have needed pipe and flywheel while trying to keep my bike from stalling all the time.

Rekluse - Well worth the price!

I got this for my son on his CRF150R. He just moved up to this bike and had trouble with the stock clutch pull - couldn't finish a 90 min hare scramble. He absolutely loved it, use the clutch lever to feather it for more power if needed, or just downshift and twist the throttle. No more clutch arm fatigue at all. IMPORTANT NOTE: if installing on crf150r, make sure you include the needle bearing and stock washer on the throwout rod, then the Rekluse spacer washer and spring. The directions weren't clear on that - the rest of the install was a breeze.

Rekluse clutch

I put this on my wifes CRF150R and has made trail riding very enjoyable for her. It was really easy to install. Make sure you buy a side cover gasket if your working on a CRF150R. I was pretty careful taking off the side cover and still ripped it.

Clutch lever?
Can you use a clutch lever with this or do you have to remove the lever? I want to be able to feather and use the clutch while riding.

The thicker gasket is not required on the 2010+ CRF250R models. You can download the product installation instructions and manuals here: http://www.rekluse.com/support.shtml The picture is representative on our website.

Can you still push start?
I have an 88 cr500 on a outlaw kart. It has to be pushed to fire it off. (No kick starter) can this still be done with this clutch?

With the Rekluse auto clutches, you will not be able to bump start the bike.

Absolutly not. You will not be able to push start your bike. But the performance of the clutch far outweighs the "occational "extra effort to start.

I'm still unsure of the performance/functional difference between the Z Start Pro and Core EXP. This is for a 2013 WR250F?

Does this kit come with a clutch basket?
I noticed this comes with an inner hub and everything else but ive read that friction plates arent included, what about the outer clutch basket?

No, this kit does not come with the friction plates or the clutch basket you will need to use your OEM. Click and watch the Rekluse how to video for step by step installation instructions.

No clutch basket for the Z-start pro, and you will have to order new, or re-use your existing clutch plates. The friction plates will come in the kit. (needed for correct spacing). Some of the other Recuse clitch kits come with a new clutch basket, if thats what your after.

No cover or friction plates both needed if you have time on clutch fibers would buy new. You don't really need the cover as they ship thicker gasket but after install and see if you enjoy the clutch I imediatley ordered cover.

The Z-start pro comes with all the mechanical parts needed, but does not contain a new cover. One of the other, more expensive Recluse kits does come with a cover. But they all have their own functions, so if your after the "auto clutch" I suggest you simply purchase it, and purchase the cover as well.

What`s diference about this one and the core 2.0 exp kit?
Hello,my bike is a yamaha wr 250f 2008 and i`d like to know more about the diference of this one and the other rekluse core 2.0 exp? Thanks.

We went ahead and asked Rekluse about this to get the best answer for you. Here are the main differences between the two clutches. The big difference between the Z-Start and 2.0 products is clutch control. The earlier product uses a pressure plate where the balls ramp out and has no pressure plate springs, so trying to override the clutch is more on or off. The 2.0 uses pressure plate springs and an expandable friction so clutch modulation feels pretty close to stock. The automatic part of both is pretty similar as they are both centrifugal.
