    auto clutch

    The clutch set up for the X uses tungsten balls, replace the TC with steel balls and it work fine.
  2. Did you check the freeplay gain and adjust accordingly? It's in the instructions.
  3. http://www.dirtrider.com/features/factory-bike-friday-jimmy-albertson-honda-crf450r/ Read the last paragraph.
  4. The new Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 is 27% lighter than the previous Core EXP 2.0. I don't know what it weighs, but it weight less now.

    Long term Rekluse experience anyone?

    Two points: 1.The EXP can be rebuilt for $140. 2.The friction material on the EXP itself is much different than the friction material on the rest of your clutch plates. It will out last traditional friction material 5 to 1.

    what rekluse clutch should i get?

    Rekluse is not discontinuing Z-start Pro, however, some Z-start Pro models have been discontinued when sales drop too low to justify continuing to build them. I hope this clears up any confusion about the clutch choices for some models bikes.

    rekluse exp install?

    The rubber band was added to standardize the "finger pull" on the lever when checking freeplay gain. Some people have big gorillia fingers and some people don't have any fingers at all.

    Auto clutch in 2001 CR250 woods bike?

    Rekluse still has an EXP for the 1992-2007 CR 250 R. It also fits the 2002-2008 CRF 450 R. The part number is RMS-6013.

    Rekluse? YZ250

    There are 2 EXP's. The basic EXP is cheaper, has less clutch frictions, and a stiff lever pull. You probably won't like it if you still want to clutch often. The Core EXP will feel like your stock clutch lever when you want to use it, has more clutch plates (better durability and snappier engagement) and is more expensive. The Core EXP is the better clutch and is what I have in my 250 2 stroke. You can always return it if you don't like it, Rekluse has a 30-Day money back guarantee.

    Rekluse Core EXP - hard to find neutral

    Odds are the EXP springs are at the stock sett in which is 3 red and 3 blue. You should have a little bag in the box with more springs in it. If it has 3 more red and 3 more blue, it's safe to say the medium set is still in the disk. All 6 blue would be a high engagement setting.

    Rekluse Core EXP - hard to find neutral

    A hard to find neutral is caused by clutch drag. There can be several causes of clutch drag. The most common in a Core EXP in any bike is a center clutch nut that is too tight. Did you install the clutch? Was a torque wrench used? Try and loosen the nut and re torque to 50 ft. lbs. A nothched basket can cause clutch drag also. Check your freeplay gain? If you bike needs to idle high, try putting the high engagement springs in the EXP disk to eliminate drag caused by too high on an idle. Call Rekluse if you need more help.

    Who runs a Rekluse? Or why don't you?

    The pictures of the clutch look good. The under side of the pressure plate looks perfect. The only thing you can't see is the center hub and if it has notching, but given the clean look of the rest of the components, i bet it is fine. Try it, you'll love it.
  13. What if? What if you could use all 250 springs in your 450 and have more torque transfer capability than your stock 450 springs and clutch? It's called TorqDrive from Rekluse and is comming December 2013. It's not an auto clutch either.
  14. A Rekluse clutch cover is machined from T6061 billet Aluminum and has a thickness of .100 in. on the face.
  15. There are two concepts that both Z-start Pro and EXP share. One is the springs, in both clutches they hold the device closed untill a high enough RPM is reached to start the bike moving foreward. There are different springs available to tune the engagement RPM. The second is the weights, different masses of weights can be used to determine how hard or soft the clutch engages. Z-start pro activates from the outside in and EXP activates from the inside out. I could go on and on, but call Rekluse if you want to learn more.
