The Rekluse EXP clutch is a great mod on almost any bike, lever feel is slightly stiffer but stays consistent. It comes in handy for nearly any riding condition. I'm not a big fan of the Z-Start Pro, because it changes the feel at the lever too much, it's too soft and changes feel with RPM. Since I decided to try one on a CRF450R in 2010, I have put one on every dirt bike I've owned since.

thank you for that info. so when shifting gears I typically use the clutch even though technically don't have to, especially downshifting I do. Whats the process like with the recluse? is it more like a superbike quick shifter no clutch for shifting gears? is it a smooth engagement? if you were starting a race for example would you start in first or second, will it bog in second?

The Rekluse is a centrifugal auto-clutch - basically if you let off the throttle, it grabs the clutch for you. Kinda cool!

I have an older Rekluse (with the strange feel of the clutch) on my 570. It's got pros and cons like everything. Overall I am a fan because of the left hand rear brake. I have much more sensitivity and feel on steep downhills using a handbrake like a mountain bike than my foot. There are some downsides with clutch feel and response at slow speeds. The newer style is supposed to be better for a more consistent feel but cost is much higher.

Good luck with your choice.

yes cost is much higher. hard to justify $900 parts cost on a 7 year old dirt bike on a bonus feature and not required engine work

Since the older z start pro was cheaper and came on KTMs as well you can proably find one used if you look around. Should be less than 1/2 the new style - that was what I did.
