    The z-Start Pro is Rekluse’s tried and true warhorse in their auto clutch lineup. With tens of thousands of satisfied pros and amateur riders, you can count on getting reliable performance and excellent power from the Z-Start Pro Auto Clutch. To begin with, the core components of the Z-Start pro are built from the highest grade, CNC-machined billet alloys that are hard anodized. This level of construction makes the Z-Start close to bullet proof with robust drive plates that resist distortion and billet clutch components that outlast most everything else on the market.

    And with that reliability also comes the ability to fully adjust the Z-Start to suit your riding style, preferences, and even current terrain. So whether you want smooth power delivery or a more aggressive hit, the Rekluse has fine tuned the Z-Start to give you excellent power to the rear wheel, versatility when it comes to tuning the clutch, and an easy riding experience where you won't have to worry about stalling the bike. That makes the Z-Start ideal for new riders, difficult or technical terrain, and long rides where your clutch hand can wear out.

  • Automatically disengages your clutch at engine idle speed. As throttle is applied, centrifugal forces progressively and positively engage the clutch
  • Highly customizable to suit the terrain and your style of riding.
  • Ideal for new riders still learning and experienced riders that still demand high performance from their clutch.
  • Tried and true offering from Rekluse that was the first auto-clutch to provide manual override.
  • 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.

    Performance
  • Great for both experienced and novice riders
  • Smooth engagement
  • Perfect override through the entire RPM range
  • The Z-Start installs in minutes
  • Eliminates stalling in low-speed corners, hard braking, even crashes
  • Fully adjustable clutch
  • Wave springs and ball bearing allow truly customized settings
  • Smooth engagement and longer component life
  • Cooler operating temperatures for longer plate life

    Construction
  • Billet aluminum center clutch
  • Automatic clutch that replaces your stock pressure plate
  • No modification to any of your existing clutch parts required
  • CNC machined billet, hard anodized aluminum alloy clutch components
  • Hard anodized components for extreme durability
  • Precision laser cut drive plates match operating tolerances

Nice clutch!
I really like this clutch. Was easy to install, and sets up easy. You have to have a little mechanical ability, but it’s worth the effort to put it in yourself. A little pricy for older bikes, but not as pricy as the newer models. Don’t have much time on it yet, but it works pretty cool! Sit there with it in gear, and just roll on the throttle, and away you go. Same with stopping. Have to get used to not pulling in the clutch handle. Pretty cool!!

The single best thing you can do to a race bike to make it behave phenomenally on the trails. It is expensive, but so far I'm happy with my purchase.
So far this has been exceptional. The quality of the pieces in the Box was high, and the fit in the machine was snug. I have not replaced the clutch before but done a lot of other work. From the time I laid my bike over till I started the break-in period was 1 hour. I went slow to make sure I didn't have to go back.

I installed this on a 2007 yz450f. I do more trail riding now and the stock clutch is awesome, but jerky on the low and slow side. That is all gone now. You would still want to use the clutch lever when coming to a stop to prevent wear on your friction discs, but navigating slowly through technical Trail portions is so much easier now. NO STALLS SO FAR!

Instructions were good, but the picture print was not. Highly recommend getting on their site and downloading the PDF with full-color pictures.

Not just for woods riders
I'm mostly a practice queen now, but still race Washougal and PRI a half-dozen times a year. I've had this now for 80 hours on my moto bike. I will replace steels and frictions in the next couple weeks for the first time. They are not shot, but that's enough hours for them. This clutch works great for moto. I can come in hot in 3rd gear to a corner, brake slide in, hammer the throttle at the apex, and never, ever, worry about a stall. Hooks up just fine. And when it's wet and guys are down, stalled, everywhere, I just keep going. No issues with starts either - same technique as a standard clutch. 2nd gear, rev it till it engages and starts to creep, hold front brake on, and hammer it on the gate drop. Holeshot!

Rekluse Is The Jam!
I don't want to feed their ego too much but with that being said I will admit that I have fallen in love with their products. Love 'em. Talk all my friends into them. They are manufactured perfectly and work flawlessly. Worth every dang penny. I'd buy another tomorrow if I had to!!

Does this package have everything i would need to completely repace the stock clutch in a bike, or would i have to buy more things to go with this?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit does not include the clutch basket or friction plates. OEM pieces must be reused.
I have a 2005 Yamaha WR450f and nothing wrong with the clutch in it. Will the Z Start Po Auto Clutch be plug n play into my bike by reusing some of the OEM parts from the existing clutch?
David P on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It was on my KTM 450. You need to reuse some of the pressure plates and the instructions will show you which ones to use. If you have any issues, call Rekluse up, they answer the phone and have a fantastic service department that is eager to help in the most awesome way!
My clutch is worn out, want to give it to my girlfriend but want to put a rekluse clutch in to help her learn to ride, what is the best product for my situation?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a z start recluse and it would be great for someone learning to ride as you cant stall the bike and it reduces rider fatigue drastically and enables a rider to focus on other key fundamentals to keep the rubber side down. you can still operate it like a full manual clutch minus the bump start. clutch disc life is longer. I found the z start was easy to install and very tunable for your specific needs. I ran a few xc races with it and rode trails, dunes and timbersled conversion with no problems for a year so far. the clutch feel on the z start is super light at idle and feels normal at riding rpm. if my wife starts riding I will get one for her and strongly recommend it for new riders to make the experience more enjoyable for them. I have ridden a bike with the top of the line recluse auto clutch and the only noticeable difference for the rider is the hydraulic clutch feel. at all rpms. I hope you and your girlfriend have many fun hours riding and hope this helped
Does this kit have the clutch cover plate with it?
Christopher R on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you are referring to the case cover, No. To have a removable clutch cover, on an 04 450 KTM, you need to change out the one piece stock cover for a two piece ATV cover. Clutch works great for ambitious trail riding. Set mine up for low rpm, soft engagement and still get engine braking if idle is set properly.
Can I put this on my 2001 Honda 400ex?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, this will not fit your machine.
