Rekluse Auto Clutches Explained

Have you been pondering and wondering which Auto-Clutch is for you, or if you even need one? Well you've come to the right place! Let us help you better understand the different types of Auto-Clutches from Rekluse Racing.

What Even Is An Auto-Clutch?

Simply put, they allow easy starting and stopping without using the clutch lever, and virtually eliminates engine stalling. Unless you have mastered clutchless shifting, the clutch lever is still used when shifting gears. Rekluse auto clutches automatically engage and disengage the clutch based on engine RPM.

Since you won't have to worry about clutch operation you can bet that arm fatigue can go down significantly. When using a traditional clutch, the rider needs to constantly use their left hand to operate the lever. This can be tiring over long rides or races, particularly if the rider needs to frequently shift gears.

With a Rekluse clutch, however, the rider no longer needs to use their left hand to operate the clutch lever. This can reduce the strain on their hand and forearm muscles, allowing them to ride for longer periods of time without experiencing as much fatigue. A Rekluse clutch can also improve the overall performance of the bike. By improving traction, stability, and control, the rider can navigate technical terrain easier and can ride at higher speeds with greater confidence. This can help the rider improve their lap times, compete at a higher level, and overall enhance their riding experience!

General Comparison 

Radius CX 

When you need the best, look no further. RadiusCX is a top of the line auto clutch product that brings together all of their latest technology into one package. TorqDrive friction disk technology coupled with EXP and our Core technology results in significant advancement in auto performance with exceptional hook-up, lever feel and durability. Just when you thought auto couldn’t get better, RadiusCX has raised the bar.

Radius X 

RadiusX  is a  high performance auto clutch that is just a clutch pack swap away. RadiusX combines TorqDrive friction disk technology with their innovative EXP (auto clutch) disk. TorqDrive provides more clutch disks in less space, delivering high performance auto function within the framework of the stock clutch.

Core EXP 3.0

Using the principles of centrifugal force, Core EXP automatically engages and disengages based on RPM. This means you can come to a complete stop in gear, without touching the clutch lever, and your bike stays running.

Performance Benefits

All three of these Rekluse auto-clutches offer significant performance benefits over a stock clutch system. The Rekluse Radius CX and Radius X's auto-clutch systems help reduce the likelihood of stalling, improve traction and stability, and reduce rider fatigue. The Rekluse Core EXP 3.0's centrifugal clutch system provides a smoother power delivery and can reduce the strain on the bike's transmission and drivetrain. However, the Rekluse Radius CX's more adjustable design provides more precise control over the bike's power delivery, making it a better choice for more advanced riders who want to fine-tune their riding style.


The installation process for these three auto-clutches also differs. The Rekluse Radius CX is a more complex system that requires more installation steps, including the installation of a new clutch basket and pressure plate. The Rekluse Radius X is a simpler installation process that only requires the installation of the clutch components, but it still requires some technical expertise. The Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 is a more straightforward installation process and is designed to be a direct replacement for your bike's stock clutch.


The final difference between these Rekluse auto-clutches is their cost. The Rekluse Radius CX is the most expensive option due to its more complex auto-clutch system and additional installation steps. The Rekluse Radius X is a more affordable option that still provides significant performance benefits over a stock clutch. The Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 is also priced affordably and is a great option for riders who want a smoother power delivery without breaking the bank.

Which One Is Right For You?

When deciding between the Rekluse Radius CX, Radius X, and Core EXP 3.0, there are several factors to consider. If you're a beginner or intermediate rider who wants a clutch system that will help reduce stalling and improve traction and stability, the Rekluse Radius CX or Radius X is a great choice. If you're an advanced rider who wants more precise control over your bike's power delivery, the Rekluse Radius X is the better option. The Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 is a great choice for riders who want a smoother power delivery without spending too much.

Additionally, if you want a simpler installation process, the Rekluse Radius X or Core EXP 3.0 are better choices. However, if you're willing to spend more for a more advanced auto-clutch system and don't mind a more complex installation process, the Rekluse Radius CX is worth considering.

Ultimately, the decision between the Rekluse Radius CX, Radius X, and Core EXP 3 is yours. Any of these Rekluse Auto-Clutches are excellent additions to any dirt bike, offering a range of advantages that can greatly enhance the rider's control, stability, and performance. Whether you are a beginner rider or a seasoned pro, a Rekluse clutch can help you get the most out of your dirt biking experience. With its smooth and automatic operation, they can help reduce the likelihood of stalling, improve traction and stability, reduce rider fatigue, and enhance overall bike performance. Investing in a Rekluse clutch can make a significant difference in your dirt biking performance and enjoyment. So, if you haven't tried one yet, it's definitely worth considering for your next ride!
