Product news: Rekluse expands model coverage for Core EXP auto-clutch
January 07, 2013
The following is an industry press release...
Boise, ID (January 4th, 2012) - Rekluse has released their Core EXP Auto-Clutch product to cover the Belleville spring style clutches found in many 2012-2013 KTM and Husaberg bike models. These specific clutches will incorporate components that are lighter than stock, new Rekluse Wave Plates, and the Rekluse Adjustable Slave Cylinder. The Rekluse Core EXP is Rekluse's premiere performance auto-clutch available for $899 MSRP.
Sean Brown, Rekluse Research and Development Manager, states, "Creating these new Core EXP Auto-Clutches have been an ongoing project since the clutches were released. To get the best performance while retaining the Belleville spring and dampened two-piece inner hub, we developed a lighter than OEM inner hub with increased oil flow along with a lighter pressure plate; both of which significantly increase durability. To minimize clutch drag and improve overall performance we also developed Rekluse Wave Plate technology. Rekluse Wave Plates are specially developed clutch plates which significantly reduce drag while the clutch is engaging or dis-engaging, and also help the clutch run cooler resulting in more consistent lever feel, control, and less fade. These features plus the Rekluse Adjustable Slave Cylinder make these new products some of our best yet."
