Rekluse Core EXP Clutch Review

Rekluse started back in 2002, and has been building innovative products ever since.  One of the latest installments is the Rekluse Core EXP clutch.  I recently picked one up from the canadian distributor http://www.rekluse.ca here are my thoughts:

Pros

  • Bike won’t stall, I have ridden about 5 times and have yet to stall the bike
  • You get better traction especially on off camber uphill corners (as I found out riding yesterday)
  • When you don’t have to think about the clutch you can focus on getting on the gas earlier in corners
  • You can carry a higher gear through corners, which always makes things smoother on a four stroke
  • The Clutch Lever pull feels the same as a regular clutch
  • The clutch seems very Durable so far, and is made of quality components
  • Looks Awesome!

Cons

  • During my first ride the bike started creeping, so I had to take it apart and adjust.  Not a big deal, but also not something you would have to do with a regular clutch

If you don’t mind doing a little extra maintenance then you should definetly look into buying this clutch.  I had mine installed by my local dealer, and during the time it was there, they sold 3 more Rekluse clutches just from people seeing it on my bike!

How to Setup Suspension on a Motocross Bike

Found a pretty good video on how to setup motocross suspension, might be a little basic for some readers. But suspension is one of the most critical parts to setup on your bike

Motocross Gear Bag

 

a motocross gear bag, is one of the most important things to have, when going out to ride, without one it always seems like things get lost, or worse forgotten.  I know you’ve probably ended up at the track once or twice without a helmet, or a left boot.  This year it may be time to upgrade your gearbag, and why not.  Gear bags have come along way, some of the new ones even have wheels.  Some of the best MX gear bag companies include: OGIO and One Industries, but you can also get a gear bag from your favorite company like oneal, shift, thor, answer, no fear, etc.

Motocross Suspension – Buy Factory Suspension

RG3 Diamond Kit for Honda Bikes Suspension for Motocross is the most important thing you can invest in.  Hoping to go faster and move to the next level, this is the place to start.  Nowadays all the race bikes are four strokes, and if you race a 450 you have all the power you will ever need.  Factory Suspension, or just better suspension is what will help you go faster.  RG3 now offers fully built forks for Honda, Yamaha, and Suzuki.
