Rekluse clutch

A guy is wanting to trade his rekluse clutch the EZ start pro model for my stock clutch setup. Whats everyones thoughts on the rekluse clutch? I've never had anything like it before and just know what I've read about it. I ride all MX. Its going on a 09 kx450. Thanks in advance!

You mean a Rekluse Z-Start pro.

I would not put one on for MX only, unless you don't like to spin your rear wheel, and mostly short shift. It will eliminate stalling completely, and smooth out the traction issues on slippery terrain.

I have a Rekluse Core EXP in my 07 KX450f and I love it. I ride xc, gp and motorcross and it does well in all these conditions especially in the xc stuff. I would not have another stock clutch. Some say its cheating but I disagree. Its nice not to the think about an extra lever to pull. Try one out you will love it. My 2 cents. Good luck

I have the z-start pro. Use it for MX only. I love it. Stall prevention if I slow or stop the rear wheel too much by accident. One finger light clutch fanning at the revs I'm at in slow 2nd gear corners. I use the clutch lever as per usual to deliver smooth power while I hold the throttle relative constant. On a track I only use the auto-slip if I stuff up a gear downshift, which is handier than I care to admit. Otherwise I don't know it's in there, except that it grabs like a locker at medium+ revs, and my clutch plates and fibers last "forever".

But there is one catch: You need the rekluse clutch cover, IMO. Since the stock cover with the thick gasket is prone to leaking and also impact damage. The Rekluse cover is really tough.

Always fill your oil level to the maximum, and the rekluse clutch lever manual override works better. Better shifting with max oil anyway. Done over 200 hrs on the thing.

I picked up a Z-start pro while my bike is apart and plan on installing it when I put it back together. I race MX and occasionally trail and desert ride. I have ridden a CRF with the older Z-start on a track and loved it. No stalling, much easier to ride and focus on things other than clutching through the corners. Can't wait till it's all together and adjusted. Don't know about the Rekluse cover though... don't want to give away any advantage by advertising. Maybe if someone were to come out with an aluminum spacer and 2 stock gaskets so you could stay in stealth mode...

I'm unsure what I wanna do. I talked to the guy on the phone, hes like 4hrs from me so not sure if its worth the drive...he wants to do a trade and ship everything, I ship my stuff and he ships his stuff....not sure if I want to get into all that.

I love ReKluse'd bikes - I have on both my 250f (woods) and 450f (mx only) - your crazy if you don't trade him IMO.

Wheres he at in PA? I ride in the woods and thats what the clutch is for. If you decide not to do the trade send him my way..

Do any of the pro GNCC guys use an auto clutch ??

i would imagine they all do

Sorry for the stupid question, but I dont get how the whole Rekluse thing works. So you still have clutch when you first take off, but dont ever use it again. What about shifting and when you come to a stop ?

Give the guy my number ill trade lol

Tenn, it's basicly a centrifugal clutch. Like on mini bikes and little kid's bikes.

A friend of mines son has a klx110, clutch leverless 3 speed, and he has a wr250 with a rekluse, I guess they never learned how to use a clutch...haha!
