Details

    The Tusk Competition Clutch Kit is a high-performance clutch perfect for racing and high heat applications. This clutch is a great choice when replacing wore out and slipping clutches on motorcycles and ATV’s. Both the friction and steel plates are made to meet or exceed OEM specifications with tight tolerances to ensure a perfect fit. Instead of being cork based like standard clutch kits, the friction plate material is made from an Aramid fiber material which is extremely heat resistant and durable. High strength steel drive plates prevent heat distortion and warping. Think Tusk for all of your quality motorcycle, ATV, and UTV parts and accessories.
  • Performance clutch kit made to handle the extremes of racing and off-road riding.
  • Aramid fiber friction material is extremely heat resistant and durable for extended clutch life.
  • High strength steel drive plates prevent heat distortion and warping.
  • Made to OEM specifications for the perfect fit.
  • Complete with all friction and drive plates.

Destroyed my Brand New Bike!
Buyers beware, do not buy this kit. The 2 inner-most fiber plates broke into pieces, getting into my engine and causing thousands in damage (I have the receipts and it's still not fixed). All Rocky Mountain offered me was the price of the kit.

Tusk Competition Clutch
Replaced my stock clutch with this and it works great. Can't say much for longevity but it's so much cheaper than a replacement from KTM that I'd be happy if it lasts 1/2 as long. I've had good luck with Tusk products before so I'm optimistic that this will be good

Better than Oem
stock clutch in my 19 yz 125 was toast after 15 hours. put this in and I'm now at 38 hours and still feels new. Doesn't slip and hardly ever have to adjust it. I hammer on my clutch ALOT and im supprised it lasted this long at such a cheap price, WILL be buying again.

2019 KX450 CLUTCH UPGRADE.
Purchased this to get rid of the judder spring on my '19 KX450. Part arrived in a timely manner and fit without any issues. A lot of people recommended the EBC clutch springs and I agree. Had a chance to test out last weekend and I am really impressed with the performance of the clutch. No more clutch slip and judder spring drama.

Does this clutch kit retain the use of the factory judder spring assembly? I purchased the kit for made for the 07 trx 450r.
WESLEY P on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: no you take the judder springs out for this clutch kit.
do you have to soak the clutch plates in oil first?
Brent B on May 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes you should always soak the clutch plates before you install them. Some factory teams suggest as little as 10 minutes while most people agree on 24 hours of soaking. Just an FYI. I used a zip lock bag and all the oil leaked out even though it appeared to seal well. I would suggest using a hard plastic Tupperware or container just so you don't make a mess. I soaked my clutch plates for an hour and have been using them in my KX 450 for over 30 hours now and they are still perfectly in speck.
I have a yz250f 05. What other parts do I need to pick up with this clutch kit?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would also get a spring kit or just buy the clutch pack with the correct springs. Over time the springs loose tension and can actually cause your brand new clutch to prematurely wear out . Costing you more money and time in the end. Think of how many times you pull your clutch in. All those times cause the springs to activate and thus cause them to get weaker.
Would they hold up with A Hinson assembly?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I installed the tusk clutch kit in my Honda 450R with a Hinson clutch and works great. Got 10 hours on them and work excellent. I would defiantly buy these again.
i have a 18 yz450f and i see you have the clutch kit but no springs.. can OE springs be used?
andy c on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: OE springs can be used. HD springs can also be used, but clutch pull will be stiffer.
I own a 2012 ktm 450sxf, does the Tusk clutch kit have the 3 thin steel plates like the oem ? Love the Tusk products.
edward b on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I can say that on my CR250R it came with all plates (clutch and aluminum) that were needed to complete the install. In my case I also received new springs but that was an option you select.
I have a 2011 ktm 300xc with a rekluse 3.0 exp. The rekluse used OEM plates and disc when initially installed....assuming this will also fit?
Greg S on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Tusk plates are OEM replacements and the same size as original so they will fit with the Rekluse
2013 raptor 700. can i use heavy duty clutch plates with regular tension springs? want extended life but not extra clutch pull. getting older (lol).
A shopper on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This clutch kit works great. easy to install and yes you can use the regular springs, although it can't hurt to replace them. be sure to soak them good in the oil your going to put in the bike before you install.
i don't ride my clutch that hard but i heard that the competition last longer is that true?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, not only are the frictions made of an aramid fiber that resist heat extremely well but I've had this kit on my bike for over 2 years of hairscrambles and I havent needed to touch it since
2011 wr250f do you remove plate seat and clutch boss spring with this kit?
Jolayne B on Sep 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes remove side casing then the plate seat along with the springs and then all the clutch plates should be a bale to be lifted kit then reinstall the new ones in the same order the old set same out but before putting the new clutch plates in make sure to soak all the new ones in fresh oil for about 24 hours before installing them
will these work with the wiseco basket and stock inner hub and pressure plate?
A shopper on May 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I used an aftermarket inner hub with the wiseco basket and tusks pressure plates and that is working fine. Only changed the clutches after several hours of racing. Hope this helps
? What's the size on the clutches. I got some from ebay and they are too small dont fit my 2003 rm 125. Mine are like 5 1/2 inches wide. Can you measure urs so I can get some from you guys.
A shopper on Apr 25, 2020

Recently bought this kit, 2012 Crf450r. The drive plates will not fit my inner hub, are these not compatible with Rekluse core exp 3.0 clutches?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2020

I am having troubles with this clutch pack. Is it drop in ready per say or is there something I need to do in order to use it on my 2015 KX450F? I had the stock clutch before no problems, switch out with this pack which is super straight forward to install put cover on and it will not engage. I have adjusted cables but still not going to work. Start bike in neutral, go to shift and bike jumps forward and dies, cant roll bike in gear either while pulling clutch in. Stumped

I have an (08 ktm 250 xc w)will this product work with rekluse exp 3.0 clutch?
Richie C on Sep 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: it depends on your bike. certain machines use the OEM clutch plates and friction plates. if yours took special plates then no. i would check with rekluse.
i just received this kit. on one of the "ears" on the fiber it is shaped like a crown on all the fiber plates. are these to line up or alternate around the clutch hub?
Geoffrey E on Jul 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. These are suppose to alternate around the clutch hub. they are to allow oil to more freely flow into the clutch plates. thank you for your question.
Can I use this in a rekluse?
Marcos G on Jun 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what clutch you have from Rekluse.
Does the KLR 650 clutch kit come with springs?
