    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.

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.

So far it’s a fine product
Put one on a 02’ YZ 85 and took it trail riding for about three hours. So far no issues. Currently I will give it a thumbs up till it I see how far it will last. I used the EBC springs instead of tusk brand just from reading other reviews.

Perfect Replacement
I recently bought a 2002 Warrior 350 that needed a lot of TLC. The clutch needed to be replaced. I watched the Rocky Mountain "how to" video on YouTube for the Warrior 350 and decided that was the route I was going to go. When I searched the site, they had the kit, and it was cheaper than everywhere else I searched. It was a no-brainer to buy it from here. The step by step video made it easy for a first timer like myself. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

Used this clutch in the past with no problems but this one didn't work at all. Clutch would not slip. Changed out everything in the clutch with no change. Replaced fibers with oem and worked fine.

It's good, But...
This is a super good clutch ! I have about 85 hours on it on a yz125! I race hare scrambles and desert and sometimes moto for fun. This clutch has held up well and still does, kinda... there are some flaws to this clutch. It seems to wear out quickly, not slip badly, but it loses its bite very quickly, after about 40 hours it lost a lot of bite and now at 80 it has almost none and does not like being put under heavy clutch use. I will be switching to another brand, but I defiantly recommend it to anybody! I will be buying this product again to have as a spare on my yz125 and yz250!

Great product so far
Figure I'd go with the higher quality set. It definitely engages well and shifts solid. Would recommend.

Very good clutch for great price
You really can't beat the price of these kits for what you get. I had a few friends who ran them with great success so I finally decided to run them and have been more than happy with them. First was my yz125 since I figured if I'm going to burn through clutches I may as well get and go on the cheap side. I'm on my second in that bike and they easily go 12-15 hours before I notice any signs of wear. First one was barely starting to feel like it slipped and the fiber plates looked fine, metal were just starting to glaze over. Recently threw one in my kx250f and it's been just fine even with the added torque of the 4 stroke. Never had any problems with adjustment either, minimal after the first ride and then it's dialed. Definitely money well spent and saved too!

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
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 this fit a 2018 honda trx250x?
Colton P on Aug 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, just make sure to enter in the year, make and model for your machine and it will pull up the correct part that you need.
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
Brock L on Jan 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We would love to work with you on this issue. Please email [email protected] with your VIN, information and pictures if you have them.
I am installing this on my sons KX 85. Do I re-use the cushion / judder spring? This is my 1st time doing this, so not sure if it is reused. Their were no instructions with the set.
Scott D on Sep 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I did ✅

BEST ANSWER: yes it will.
I have early 2009 said to have 8 friction plates does this kit fit later or early 2009 KLR 650's?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2017

BEST ANSWER: Tusk does. tusk is out in house brand here at rocky mountain. i use this exact kit in desert races and enduro crosses. i have had really good luck with this kit. i love it. good price too.
I installed this on a 2014 YZ250F and after one ride it feels like its slipping. Do you use or not use the Spring Cushion. (Judder Spring on a Honda) it did not state in the directions wether or not to retain the spring?
Michael H on Oct 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: you take the judder spring out of the machine. it will no longer be used.
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?
Richard B on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This kit does not come with springs. You will need to order the kit that says Tusk Clutch Kit With Heavy Duty Springs.
