    The Core EXP 3.0 is Rekluse’s latest update to their Core EXP line and their most advanced clutch yet. Rekluse is still providing the uncontested best for weekend warriors and professional racers alike by giving them the same smooth shifting, raw power delivery, and zero stalling that all Rekluse centrifugal clutches offer.

    With Rekluse’s 3.0 update, the Core EXP is taken to a new level of refinement and precision. A redesigned clutch plate now has less rotating mass thanks to large lubrication openings that promote cooler operating temps. The increased durability of the 3.0 means greater component life and less adjustments to the system as a whole once you have it dialed in. When your traditional clutch fades the Rekluse is engineered to hold fast and keep that precious horsepower transferring to the rear wheel.

    What does all this engineering mean for you, the rider? That rocky climb you stalled on? You’re going to fly up it. The technical terrain you’ve never been comfortable with? You’re about to pick it apart. Tired of eating roost at the track? Welcome to the world of faster lap times. With updates and cues taken from previous generations, the Core EXP Clutch 3.0 has the refinements, performance, and absolute control you need to move up in the riding world.

  • Improves traction in technical and slow terrain with a smooth power delivery and limited tire spin.
  • Increases durability by increasing oil flow though clutch and including premium materials in the construction.
  • Installs easily with all the componenets you need and a seamless integration with stock/OEM components.
  • Made 100% in the USA: Rekluse supports the sport by designing, manufacturing, and shipping everything under the Rekluse name from their headquarters in Boise, Idaho.

    Includes
  • 3.0 Clutch Hub that resists notching due to its design and greatly reduces weight compared to the stock component.
  • 3.0 Pressure Plate for greatly increased oil flow and reduced mass thanks to the extensive cutouts.
  • Steel Drive Plates that provide unrivaled consistency and repeatable clutch engagment even when clutch temps rise.
  • Some models include Rekluse Clutch Cover for trick looks, a strong guard against debris/brake pedals, and the room your clutch needs to work at peak performance.

    Benefits
  • Virtually eliminates stalling
  • Improved slip/fade control over previous models
  • Increased durability from premium materials
  • Lighter assembly for a lighter feeling bike
  • Increased lubrication from better oil flow
  • Cooler operating temperatures
  • Fully tunable to rider preference and terrain condition

    Construction
  • Centrifugal auto clutch that replaces your stock components
  • Still allows engine braking
  • Enables use of clutch override lever
  • Enables use of optional left hand rear brake kits

Very Satisfied Great Product for the price
When I put this this unit on my 2008 XC 530 KTM ,
I could not believe what i had been missing
I have never had any troubles out this product after the installation,
When I bought my new bike in 2019 I instantly noticed the difference and I purchased another Rekluse for my 2019 bike
This product is worth every penny
Thanks

the two-year review
My enduro group recommended this piece. I started enduro riding at 47 yrs old and have loved every minute of it. The rekluse has been a great help. It fit perfectly, has been running great and has helped me enjoy the sport immensely. Please note I tried using the clutch for the first four months (about 10 rides) and it was too difficult to go over rocks, fallen trees, river beds and boulders. Now, I'm king of the rocks!

Just do it!
I took up trail riding in my early 50's and have ridden with better riders for over 15 years. Now I know why I thought they were so much better. They had rekluse's and I did not. Called my most frequent riding partner and told him he was now officially not that good as when I finally installed a rekluse on my CRF 250X there were no longer areas where I struggled with clutch action or engine stoppage. Don't wait. It will change your riding experience for the better on the very first ride.

rekluse clutch
I really like the rekluse clutch on my kx 450 ,Its a must for trail riding Steep and rocky terrain .The only thing i didnt like is if your engine got below a certain rpm the bike would free wheel ,Not a real problem just takes time to get used to . I really like it and wont ever go beak to standard clutch.

Almost like Cheating
After riding with the Rekluse I decided to turn it off and see if there was any difference. i have always ridden like the Rekluse wasn't on the bike. After turning it back to manual I could tell a Huge difference in tight technical trails. This is a game changer!

Installation took longer than expected and there were a few gray areas after following instructions and videos. Spent a day trail riding to get used to the clutch before a hare scramble the following day.

What difference it makes. Now I know why everyone else has one.

Do you still use the clutch lever with this clutch?
Grant D on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You have two choices here. You can still use it just like a normal clutch lever for starting off and shifting if you want to and It feels exactly like the original manual clutch. Or you can elect not to use it at all.. your choice. I recommend using it some to start off as well as feathering to gain power. The main upside is that the bike will never stall so you can focus more on the technical riding. The down side, which is minor, is that the bike will roll while in gear so you can't use engine compression to keep the rear wheel from turning. Hope this helps.
I purchased the Rekluse Core EXP Clutch 3.0 for my 2014 KTM 500 EXC and I want to be sure all the parts I need are included. Or.....do I need to buy clutch plates or anything else????
B E on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Everything you need is included. Excellent Clutch package, you'll love it. I installed my on my 2012 Yamaha WR450F. When you install it, pulling you oem basket off, you don't have to take it all the way off. If you do remove it, make sure you put it back correctly, because I broke my kick-start gear because I had no idea it had to fit in a groove. Also, I crashed on my WR and broke my leg, somy wife and daughters talked me into selling it. I am 60 yrs old, but I miss my WR a lot. I had everything you could possibly add or buy on my bike, it was super fast, handled perfect and a blast to ride in the AZ desert around my home. I hope I helped you. Make sure you adjust your clutch according o the instructions. There are videos on their website and their Customer Service is excellent also, I called them several times, they were very helpful.
Does this come with the clutch basket?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does not. The picture is accurate as to what you get in the kit.
Can you still use the clutch with Brisbane package?
Ian on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can still use the clutch!
How does the auto-clutch affect engine braking? I use the engine to brake often on steep and technical descents, and want to know if I would still be able to do that with a Rekluse installed.

Rekluse RadiusCX Clutch
Rekluse RadiusCX Clutch
BEST ANSWER: Jason- that was something I was concerned with as well... however, it really hasn't been a problem. If your descending a steep hill and the RPM drops to low maybe locking up your rear brake all you need to do is blip the throttle and it's all good!

I love the recluse!
Does it change how the bike starts with button?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. If anything it makes it easier to start because there is no drag when it’s in gear. Best purchase ever! I have 2016 ktm450 xcf (B class racer)I really like it. Also, there are no adverse effects to the clutch. If you hopped on my bike and I didn’t tell you I had a reckless, you’d literally never even know but it prevents a ton of stalling and difficult situations trail riding.
No more bump start. What does this mean for bikes with electric start only and no kick starter (2017 ktm 250f)? Is this a deal breaker?
Brian B on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: clutch'sBrian , not sure if it would be a deal breaker for me. I think the benefits out weigh the draw back of not bump starting. But then again I ride a lot of woods with some very hard hill climbs. Myself I don't understand why KTM stopped installing kick starters on the new bikes. I have a 2015 KTM 300 XC and a 2015 YZ250FX and they both have electric start and a kick starter and Rekluse clutch's . If I rode a lot of MX tracks I wouldn't think the rukluse would help you as much as it would in the woods
Do I need to install a different clutch cover on a Crf150r?? If so does it come with the kit??
James J on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The crf150r doesn’t have a round removable “clutch cover”. There will not be one in this kit and you will reuse the stock one.
What are the main differences between these two clutches?
Noah w on Jan 15, 2019
Rekluse Core EXP Clutch 3.0
Rekluse Core EXP Clutch 3.0
Rekluse RadiusCX Clutch
Rekluse RadiusCX Clutch
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2013 350 EXC-F. Had a 3.0 for a few years, just installed a Radius CX myself. The difference, 3.0 to CX; CX comes with a Rekluse basket, a Rekluse cover, and one more friction plate and one more steel plate. Doesn't seem as though this cover makes it so the engine oil capacity is increased. I can still put my orange plastic Hard Parts protector on, just like over the OEM cover. I also changed back to a regular OEM BELLEVILLE SPRING (this doesn't come with kit, use your old one). Bought and installed the HD kind, the 280 psi option, with the 3.0. Thought I needed the extra 'strength'. The CX with stock 250 psi Belleville Spring works fine. No slippage. Plus it is much easier to pull cl. lever compared to having the HD spring.
The CX works great. Maybe because it's new but seems smoother, more positive engagement.
I also put in the lighter springs and the heavier wedges, want the clutch to engage sooner and quicker. The Rekluse clutch can be adjusted a lot. Can be adjusted to engage when you want, and can be adjusted so you can bump start the bike, and can be adjusted to have engine braking as much as you want.
Does this clutch kit increase the oil capacity on my 500 exc?
William R on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I didn't notice any change in the oil capacity on my 350. Before I purchased mine I called Rekluse directly with a few questions and they were extremely helpful. They have excellent customer support.
do you still need to use the clutch lever when starting a race or does it do it for you?
Henry M on Sep 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the temperament of your bike. My daughter has a CRF150R and it really doesn’t like to be kick started in gear, even with the clutch pulled in. My Kawasaki KX450 doesn’t mind it. Have to find the sweet spot, or, TDC first but she starts right up in gear with no clutch pull.
i have this clutch in my 2014 ktm 150xc and the metals are shot. what metals can i use?, i tried putting the stock ones in and they didnt .
sage w on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what you mean by the metals, maybe the clutch plates? If so you are probably using the wrong oil, possibly a synthetic which will cause problems.

I have 4 friends as well as myself that have a Rekluse clutch in our bikes. We all use "Shell Rotella 15W 40" oil. It is a diesel oil that not one of us has ever had a problem with.
Does this include a new cover gasket? For KTM 300xcw
miles s on Nov 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This one doesnt come with a new rekluse clutch cover. You can purchase it seperate if you want one but i just left my stock cover and bought a oem gasket. Its been a couple years since i bought the rekluse for my ktm so i would check the package just to make sure because when i got one for my yz250 it came with a cover because it had to be deeper. I still dont think it had a new gasket though.
Is my recluse clutch interchangeable between my 2008 YZ250F and my 2008 YZ450F? It is currently on the 2008 YZ250F
Scott S on Jan 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Call rekluse. One of the best customer service companies I've dealt with. (208)426-0659. They answered questions for me, few warranties, and put me in touch with pros for specific questions. Great
Is the 2007 CRF450R one of the models where the side cover is included? If so, then, is the side cover gasket included?
Charles H on Apr 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If the extended side cover is necessary, it will be included. As for the gasket, mine wasn’t included. I had to reuse mine from my bike (KX450F-2017).
What makes the Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 better or different than the Rekluse Radius X? I’ve seen the differences in the Rekluse website but would like to hear why riders choose this over the Radius X.
angel c on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I currently run the 3.0. It’s awesome, I hold bet there is little to no feeling difference between the two. I had to use the 3.0 for my bike as it was a ktm. I’m running a 2016 ktm 450 xcf. I tell people that if you didn’t know it had a rekluse and rode it you would never tell the difference. The response and clutch action are literally the exact same but with the benefit of the rekluse when I need it. I would argue they probably feel the same and would even say buy the least expensive one that fits in your bike as it will do the same job probably just as well.
2017 ktm 350 xc-f:
I was told the kit does NOT come with a cover. Is the cover necessary for use with my bike? And if I use the stock cover do I need a thicker gasket?
joshua c on Dec 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Product note states: Some models include Rekluse Clutch Cover for trick looks, a strong guard against debris/brake pedals, and the room your clutch needs to work at peak performance.

You do not need the Rekluse cover to use a Rekluse Clutch Kit in your machine. The manufacturer states that you have larger oil flow for cooling which reduces clutch fade and slip. Components stay better lubricated and last longer.

You do not need a thicker gasket.
I want to buy recluse clutch EXP 3.0 . Will the Clutch case fit my 2019te 300i ?
David G on Sep 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That would be a question for Rekluse. I would make sure of fitment through them or Rocky Mountain to be sure. A quick phone call would work.
Does rekluse make a kit for a trx400ex?
david k on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would be happy to check. What year is your TRX?
Can this item be shipped in Greece?
Maro K on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we are unable to ship Rekluse items outside of the U.S. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
Is the Core EXP 3.0 same part for 2016 and 2017 yz250x? it's not listed for 2017 in parts finder.
Patrick M on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 2016 and 2017 YZ250X use the same Core EXP3.0.
What is the parts list for this product? (Part# 1487510032)
Christopher S on Oct 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It includes the clutch hub, pressure plate, adjustable slave cylinder, steel clutch plates, Rekluse auto clutch pack, and all necessary hardware, springs, and instructions.
Does this fit 2016 KTM 500 exc? The dropdown only goes to 2015.
brian j on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it will not. The Rekluse number for the 2015 is RMS-7784 and the number for the 2016 is RMS-7782.
