The instructions are pretty good, make sure you have 2 feeler gauges for set-up.

and as I said, do a search for auto clutches in the yamaha forums, and the honda crf 450 forums, going back a year; you should be able to find plenty of info. Good luck.

i like it quite a lot. the only thing i reccomend is to skip the rear hand break kit and leave the manual clutch (which will still work) in place. even on my big bad 380 there are times i wish to pop an emergency wheelie and it's quite difficult without the benefit of the clutch.

So what's the difference in the Gen3?
I recently upgraded to the Gen-3 a couple weeks ago. The significant changes are: the design goes from using  5/16 diameter balls to 30 [3/8] diameter balls. In the past set-up from one bike model to another varied; each required a specific amount of mass to operate nominally. That meant adding or not adding a specific number of tungsten/carbide balls to the mix. The weight/mass of the T/C balls is nearly twice that of the regular steel balls. The ball ramps in the new pressure plate have been redesigned in a way where creep at idle is essentially non-existent now, and the ramps accomodate the new mass very well. What that means in performance is that the clutch engages smoother and is more user friendly. What that means to the manufacturing process is that rekluse has hit upon a design that can be mass produced for ALL bike models, with no dicking around with individual "packages" for each bike. The pressure plate also no longer has a friction disc riveted to it. What that meant before is when that friction material wore off the plate, it warrented returning to rekluse for replacement. That is no longer necessary.
The set up procedure has also changed; rekluse provides steel drive discs that are thinner than stock, and they are used to achieve proper stack height.
