Rekluse Broadens Core Manual™ Clutch Model Coverage

Boise, ID - Rekluse has released their Core Manual clutch product to cover the DDS style clutches found in many 2012-2013 KTM and Husaberg bike models. These specific clutches will incorporate components that are lighter than stock and new Rekluse TEC Plates. The Rekluse Core Manual is Rekluse’s high performance manual clutch available for $519 MSRP.

Sean Brown, Rekluse Research and Development Manager, states, “Creating these new Core Manual clutches have been an ongoing project since the clutches were released. To get the best performance while retaining the Belleville spring and dampened two-piece inner hub, we developed a lighter than OEM inner hub with increased oil flow along with a lighter pressure plate; both of which significantly increase durability.  To minimize clutch drag and improve overall performance we also developed Rekluse TEC Plate technology. Rekluse TEC Plates are specially developed clutch plates which significantly reduce drag while the clutch is engaging or dis-engaging. They also help the clutch run cooler resulting in more consistent lever feel, control, and less fade.  These features make these new Core Manual products some of our best yet.”

6 Championships earned by KTM Off-Road and Rekluse for 2011

Murietta, CA – This year proved to be flooded with success for the KTM Off-Road race teams, backed by Rekluse. To say that KTM dominated the off-road scene in 2011 is truly an understatement. KTM swept championships in every off-road racing discipline for 2011.

Kurt Caselli nailed down two championships for 2011, one in WORCS racing and one in the AMA National Hare & Hound series. The WORCS championship represents Kurt’s third WORCS Championship, making him the only rider in WORCS racing history to attain three championships in the series. “I am very excited to win this championship,” remarked Caselli. “I have worked very hard this year to defend my title and it is a great feeling to come out on top.” Caselli’s other championship title was earned in the AMA National Hare & Hound series where he secured the championship a full round early. Antti Kallonen, Factory FMF/KTM team manager, states “We are very proud of Kurt. He has worked very hard this season toward winning this championship and we are excited that he is able to win one round early. This is the first full year commitment to this series and it is great to see him walk away with the title after just one season.”

Kacy Martinez successfully defended her championship title in women’s WORCS series pro class for 2011. The RPM/ KTM team rider states “Everyone always says it’s harder to defend a title than to win your first and it definitely was.”

Charlie Mullins made history when he claimed his first pro career GNCC XC1 Championship this year. He is the first American to win the title since Scott Plessinger back in 1995. Mullins had a great, solid year with 6 race wins and 4 additional podium finishes. As Mullins exclaims, “I can’t explain how much this title championship means to me. This is the championship I have worked for since I was a kid. This is the reason I ride and the reason I train. If feels so good to finally win this title.”

Maria Forsberg claimed her 2nd GNCC Championship in the women’s pro class a full two rounds early. The 4 time WORCS champion, Women’s Endurocross X Games gold medalist, and now 2nd time GNCC champion states “It feels really good to wrap up the championship early. I did not expect to dominate the way I have this season and I am so grateful that I had the RPM/KTM Team behind me to help with this championship.”

Russell Bobbitt captured his 4th AMA National Enduro Championship this year in a year end battle that came down to the wire between himself and teammate, Charlie Mullins. “It was a great race to win,” comments Bobbitt. “It was a long year and a tough season. I felt good all day and everything just clicked. My bike worked really well. Thanks to my mechanic Tanner, my friend Andrew Marsh, my family, and the whole FMF/KTM Team for helping me earn this championship.”

Nearly 5,000 spectators were in attendance to witness the world class athleticism exhibited by Ahola and Joly. Taking his Rekluse backed HM Honda to the winners circle is nothing new to Mika Ahola.

With his 5th consecutive title for 2011 Ahola dominated the E3 class, beating out rival and fierce competitor, Christophe Nambotin of France. “These five titles mean a lot to me…” states Mika Ahola. “Firstly, because I am the first to have won in all 3 categories; secondly because it is the 5th in a row; and lastly because I am the oldest champion in the world!”

Frenchmen Jeremy Joly came away with a championship title in the EJ (Junior) class aboard his Rekluse backed HM Honda. Having barely missed the championship win last year by a mere point spread, Joly was nothing short of ecstatic to win this year. “It feels fantastic to win this title, I’ve been waiting for this and there we go, I’ve managed to become the World Champion!” exclaims Joly.

Massie Wins AMA Arenacross Lites Eastern Regional Championship

Rockford, Illinois, was home to the final round of the AMA Arenacross series. In a culmination of a very hard work and many hard fought laps, an Arenacross Lites Eastern Regional Champion was crowned.

The Rekluse backed Foremost Insurance/Spinechillers/Hondaoffairfield.com rider Patrick Massie wrapped up his series points championship with a 2nd place finish on the night that secured his points lead for the Eastern Regional Championship. With two wins on the season and many top 5 finishes, Patrick Massie came away with a 216 point victory over Austin Primavera (134 points). Massie will be running the #1 plate for the 2012 Arenacross series. Massie states, “I had a successful 2010/2011 Arenacross season, winning the lites east championship. Part of that success was helped by using the Rekluse Core EXP clutch. I pulled several holeshots and the clutch didn't seem to fade toward the end of races like many others. The team and myself are looking forward to using Rekluse products for another great season.”

 NEW for 2011:

Core EXP just got better – Now with EXP 2.0 Technology™
Breakthrough in Response, Performance & Tunability!

“The Rekluse Core EXP Auto-Clutch Is Magical” – Dirt Bike Magazine

Rekluse Core EXP – Core as in “Hard-Core,” is our award winning premier product. It is the #1 choice for performance minded riders that insist on perfect clutch lever feel that also demand the highest performance and durability available.

When introduced in 2009, EXP technology revolutionized the auto-clutch market by incorporating sliding wedges into an expanding friction disk. Wedges provided increased clutch performance at low to mid RPMs over traditional ball-bearing auto-clutches. By incorporating two ball bearings stacked on top of each other within the wedge, the friction generated from sliding wedges is virtually eliminated in EXP 2.0.

The result is clutch engagement and disengagement response that is unparalleled by any previous auto-clutch. Throttle control is increased dramatically while maintaining increased clutch performance at low to mid RPMs. With the increased response, a wider array of tuning options become available while further reducing the possibility of “pop” stalls.
