I had to pass this on....I put off the purchase of a Rekluse for some time now. My first few rides have been incredible! I know this is not a new topic, but if you are considering this purchase...cause it is not cheap, go for it! I love mine!!!! One more thing, for us off-road guys the rear hand break is a great pruchase too!:applause:

I rode a CRF250X last weekend that had the Rekluse Z-start clutch...now I gotta have one for my WR. From what I see and read, I won't need the perch adjuster for my bike. I'm gathering that's one of the major reasons to go with the Pro model.

Can anybody give me any personal experience input on whether I should go Z-start or pro?

I have had both and the Pro model is absolutely worth the money. It allows completely normal manual clutch operation if you want to ride it that way, or you can just let the Rekluse take care of it. :prof:

I agree. I'm glad I got the perch adjuster. If you flame out on a hill climb it allows you to give it a couple of BRAAAPS to clear it out before finishing the climb.

I love my rekluse too! Best money spent on the bike yet. I have the z-start w/perch adjuster and I think it works great. My brother in law has the pro and he really likes it too. I don't think there is a wrong decision here.:prof:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when I look at the Rekluse application document (see link below), it appears that WR's prior to '05 do not require a perch adjuster...at least it doesn't look like one is available. It's not that I don't want to buy the best product, just don't want to spend more coin than I have to right now.

None of them require the perch adjuster but if you want the manual overide you will need one. I agree with the others that say the rekluse was the best purchase I have made with my bike. I will not have another bike without one.

Slightly off topic but I yesterday got a call from a friend who just bought a used XR 650 with a Rekluse clutch. I have been telling him how great mine was. He's not very mechanicaly inclined, but went off alone on a ride to try it out. Apparently he shifted up to 5th and just left it there and rode. He was under the impression that it also some how shifted the transmission for him! After a few miles of riding up hills, starts, stops etc. the bike would no longer move and his cases felt very hot. He had to walk out ten miles to get a ride home to get his truck. I'm helping him put in new clutch pack this weekend and now he know that it's only and automatic clutch, not transmission.

I have used many Rekluse auto clutches on my own bikes over the years. And I've installed many on my costumers bikes with great positive feedback. I just put the Rekluse Pro on my 04 WR450 and I absolutley love it! It just makes riding it in the tight woods a pleasure.:prof: One of the best mods you can do to your WR.

The Rekluse Pro part number RMS873 will fit the 07-08 WR450F.
