Slipper Clutch

14 posts in this topic

Is Rekluse the only people that make a slipper clutch? I want to try one on the yz400f I am building. that seems to be a problem also. 400cc

The 400 uses a different clutch than the 426?

How about the 250f clutch?

I don't see what's with these auto-clutches. If the bike worked better with an auto-clutch, why would the big 5 run manual ones stock? Why would there even be manual clutches? :lol::cry: :cry: :cry::lol::cry: :cry:

What is the difference between the auto and slipper?

Thought they were the same :cry: Once I stumbled on more than one maker. Can't find them now :cry:

Slipper clutches allow the clutch to slip on decel to help reduce wheel hop/lockup when entering a corner or going downhill.

Like the above post said it seems like you are looking for an automatic clutch. These work with centrifugal force and will slip or disengage whenever the RPM's are low enough.

Rev-Loc, Rekluse (Z-Start), and EFM are the only makers I know of for retrofit autoclutches. Rev-Loc is the only maker I found that makes a model for the 400. I would think a quick call to any of the others would get you info regarding whether the 400 clutch is the same as the 426 or others.

I just installed a Rev-Loc in my bike and like the way it works.

ride one and ye shall see the light :cry: no really they are the best thing since sliced bread,i don't know about the others but the rekluse is adjustable for stall speed and engagement(springs and balls)so you can pretty much set it up the way you like. mine is set up for low rpm stall and fast engagement with the lever overide,so i don't even know the difference until it saves my butt! and if you lay it down just pick it back up and go,you can't stall it! goin up nasty hills no more worry about the clutch just gas,lockin up the back brake to slide into a corner just do it,perfect 2nd gear starts for the harescramble(or mx for that matter)its just too cool :cry: :cry:

You might be surprised how many of the MXers and DTers are using them...sshhhh!

The only thing stopping me from getting a Rekluse is the fact that I like to try hillclimbs that I shouldn't. You cannot put it in gear and expect it to stay. Minor inconveniece all things considering. Regardless I am so used to feathering the clutch that I really can't justify the money. :cry: Second nature to me since I grew up on two strokes. :cry:
