I ride an 03 YZ450f and am thinking of putting a Rekluse on. As I understand it. It only replaces the pressure plate. So should I replace the clutch plates while I'm at and doe it require that I use the Rekluse cover? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

It does replace the pressure plate and some of the metal plates.(.055, stock is .045) I put mine in with the old friction plates that measured good. Rekluse will send you a very thick gasket so you don't need a new cover if you don't want to spend the extra money.
I race hare scrambles and absolutly love mine.

I have an 04' & I replaced the clutch plates & steels
along with adding the Rekluse. I got the GYTR Yamaha
clutch kit & everything came with it & it went together
pretty easy. After the installation all the measurements
were within range and it works perfectly! Measure your
clutch plates per the manual, if they're good it will save you
some $, or just change them out while you're in there. The
stock cover works with the supplied thick gasket, as
previously stated.

Actually they send you two gaskets that you install together. I thought it might cause a leak but I haven't lost a drop :mad:

Cool, It just wasn't apparent to me what needed to be done. So I assume you guys all really like the rekluse. I am so used to using the clutch that I'm reluctant to move ahead. I do have to admit after coming home from the last HS race with a bruised arch from the kickstart I really won't miss that. I still really like to ride mx tracks and from all I have read I really won't miss the clutch there either. Correct?

In the few years I have been running mine I havent missed the lever more than 1-2 times at the most. They work great and you can run an override lever which gives some manual control. I dont run it though. Love it and their customer service is excellent!

Of course, the Rekluse works great for MX. I ride a 50/50 mix of woods and MX with the Rekluse. I still have the clutch lever too. I don't think you will be disappointed in the auto clutch, the more you ride with it, the more you'll like it. :mad:
