Just thought I'd pass along that I got an auto clutch from EFM and it's amazing. No more clutching when you shift, makes you hella faster when it comes to woods racing, plus no worries when you come to a stop, engine still runs. Plus you still have all the engine braking as normal. I would highly suggest this for $600 and it will make your riding much easier... FYI EFM's auto clutch is basically identical to the Rekluse clutch set up.

I talked with Gary about a month and a half ago, and at that time it was send in the stock clutch, they'd mod and send it back with a spacer. Is that what you did? They seem to have a good rep for the high HP Harley crowd.

Free hand for your beer:tup:, I'm kidding of course.

I want one for the best of both worlds. These clutches allow you the "on demand" choice of auto or not. In the tight eastern woods, they are a HUGE advantage on bikes, and all of the utility quads run them. For me it's about choice. I am very excited to see that someone else bit the bullet on this and can give us some feedback...my wallet is open!

My wifes 250ex has a sport clutch. It has a manual clutch, but you don't have to use it,she doesn't. I allways use it. I tried to ride without using the clutch but I can't. without even knowing I'm doing it, I instinctivly use the clutch.

I know what you mean Kenny, I rode almost exclusively bikes for all my life. My wife wants to ride this, and just cant seem to get the clutch thing down. So that could be a bonus for her. She rides the Recon, your wifes EX's utility brother and it is total auto.

I personally wouldn't mind it for some of the more technical stuff we have here. As was said by another member in Kuyaths other post, longevity is key. I know EFM makes good products for the street, so I can only hope.

I went with a 13t front sprocket for the technical trails. Heck, I can almost idle through the woods.

I am too. Well, maybe not tomorrow. Shoot me a PM if you find out they need the stock clutch please. Or just post it here.

Bax, when I talked to them earlier this year, it was a spacer for the cover. I think the mod makes it a bit "thicker" than stock and requires it to have a spacer. I'm anxiously awaiting Kuyath's input.

Rekluse makes one for the 450, that was my first choice. My wife was supposed to be riding the Rhino, but now it is easier to bring a quad. So, yes, you will no longer need a clutch on the 450 and Rekluse has one in stock.

Thats what I thought. I am going to wait on some longevity info from Kuyath befor eI pull the trigger. I am sure it will be fine, I just dont like modding the stock stuff.

What is the price for it? $625 like the other dirt ones? Also they only had dirt bikes listed. Did they make something special for you or do you just have to call them and they actually have one for our application?

YO, Sorry been outta town. Yes it does make it about 1" thicker. He provides you with a spacer so you put that on there along with the longer bolts and it works fine.. But yes, you do have to take your clutch out and send it to him to get this done. Takes about 2 weeks but worth the wait. Only modification needed is to bend the brake lever out about 1/2 inch so it clears the clutch cover with the spacer. Over all it works great and is basically identical to a rekluse.

Sorry, it's a bit dirty from racing, but here are the pictures of the spacer.. Plus check out my ride height, order some elka's with 2" of sag then drop them to the ground, much more stability, no body role, and perfect for woods racing.
