Introducing New TorqDrive Clutch Packs

The next high performance manual clutch from Rekluse is here; introducing the TorqDrive Clutch Pack.

The next high performance manual clutch from Rekluse is here; introducing the TorqDrive Clutch Pack. Proven at the highest levels of racing, TorqDrive friction disk technology allows more disks to fit in a stock clutch’s footprint, decreasing slip, eliminating fade, and unlocking the full power of the engine. Riders feel improved acceleration, drive, and control. TorqDrive’s proprietary friction pad design aids oil flow and reduces drag. The result is clean disengagement at the lever, improved modulation, and improved clutch control. Whether setting track records or shredding a favorite trail, the TorqDrive Clutch Pack delivers the advantage riders are looking for.

TorqDrive friction disks utilize a steel core, while OEM disks use aluminum. When heated, steel expands less than half the amount of aluminum, virtually eliminating clutch fade. To protect and extend the life of the basket, TorqDrive includes steel lining sleeves to eliminate basket wear and notching (Note: basket sleeves not applicable to DDS or CSS equipped KTM/Husqvarna models).

Through years of research and testing, Rekluse has identified the best friction material for motorcycle applications with regard to functionality, grip and durability. This means the friction material can take more abuse than others before losing performance, lasting significantly longer than other clutch disks. Torque capacity is increased by an average of 25% while lever pull is decreased by an average of 10% (both figures vary by model).

Rekluse has announced the release of their RadiusX auto clutch and TorqDrive manual clutch for the Honda Africa Twin (CRF1000L) and the all-new Africa Twin Adventure Sports (CRF1000L2). TorqDrive provides more clutch disks in less space, delivering high performance within the framework of the stock clutch. RadiusX brings together a TorqDrive clutch pack with Rekluse’s EXP auto clutch disk, resulting in increased performance with the convenience of auto clutch functionality.

TorqDrive provides the addition of 4 friction disks to the clutch pack over stock, increasing the disk count from 8 to 12.  More frictions = more torque capacity and less slip, thus unlocking the full power of your engine without the need to add stiffer pressure plate springs to combat clutch slip.

RadiusX brings auto clutch function to the manual transmission models, providing an enhanced riding experience that is different from what the DCT equipped models provide.  RadiusX allows full lever control and modulation at all times, while providing anti-stall function. This allows the rider to start and stop in gear without touching the clutch lever and only controlling the throttle.  Whether in traffic or on the dirt, RadiusX provides an elevated riding experience.

With RadiusX, a high performance auto clutch is just a clutch pack swap away. RadiusX combines a TorqDrive clutch pack with Rekluse’s innovative EXP auto clutch disk. TorqDrive technology provides high performance auto function within the framework of the stock clutch.

The 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season wrapped up in Las Vegas last weekend. The stakes were high with all three championships being awarded in one night.

Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha’s Aaron Plessinger earned his first Supercross title, winning the 250SX West class. Plessinger needed to finish 10th or better to secure the championship. He turned in an 8th place finish in the East/West Showdown, finishing two points ahead of Adam Cianciarulo. In 10 rounds, Plessinger scored seven top five finishes including wins in Houston, Glendale, Oakland, and Seattle. Aaron was running Core Manual TorqDrive this season.

Zach Osborne of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing successfully defended his 250SX East championship from last year. Osborne needed to finish 12th place or better. He ended up with a 7th place finish, securing the championship by eight points. He was on the podium six times out of nine rounds, with wins coming in Arlington, St. Louis, and Foxborough. Zach and all of the Rockstar Husqvarna team run Core Manual.

In addition to the two 250SX championships, other Rekluse riders achieved great results.

In the 450SX class, Rockstar Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson secured his first title with a 5th place finish in Las Vegas. It is also Rockstar Husqvarna’s and Rekluse’s first 450SX title. Teammate Dean Wilson took 8th in Las Vegas, finishing 7th overall on the season. Mitchell Harrison ended the season in 8th place in the 250SX West points standings.

Smartop/MotoConcepts Racing Honda’s Justin Brayton finished the season 5th overall. He earned a podium spot 6 times this season, including his first career win in Daytona. Brayton utilized Core Manual TorqDrive.

TPJ Racing’s John Short finished 10th overall in the 250SX East standings. Short runs Core Manual TorqDrive.

Justin Starling brought home 12th overall in the 250SX West standings for AJE Motorsports. Starling also runs Core Manual TorqDrive.

“The Rekluse team is proud to have contributed to the success of individual riders and teams this Supercross season,” said Rekluse Race Program Manager Austin Paden. “Having a part in securing three championships with two separate factory programs has been surreal. We look forward to the future of our partnerships with these teams.”

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson secured the 2018 450SX Championship at the series’ final round in Las Vegas this weekend, giving Jason, Rockstar Husqvarna, and Rekluse all their first 450SX titles. Anderson’s championship comes as a result of a hard-fought season. He earned a podium spot 11 times, including wins in Houston, Oakland, San Diego, and Atlanta.

Following a collision that resulted in a 17th place finish in Salt Lake City, Jason and the team came back strong in Las Vegas. Anderson qualified 3rd and took 2nd in his heat. When the gate dropped on the main, Anderson needed 10th or better to secure the championship, and he did just that. He crossed the finish line on his Core Manual equipped FC450 in 5th place, ending the season with a 9 point lead over Marvin Musquin.

Rekluse President Sean Brown said “We’re thrilled for Jason and his milestone achievement. Earning a 450SX title has been a long standing goal for Rekluse. We got to this point through countless hours of work, testing and refining our products over the years. As a company fueled by a desire to help riders win, I am very pleased for our Rekluse team to share in this accomplishment. Having our first 450SX title come at the same time as Jason and the Rockstar Husqvarna team’s first title makes this even sweeter. Everyone at Rekluse congratulates Jason on a tremendous season and looks forward to our continued work in supporting him and the Rockstar Husqvarna program.”

President of Rekluse, Sean Brown, said “We’re excited for the start of the season and for our new and existing partnerships with the teams and riders we are supporting. The MXGP series was one of the launch-points for our championship proven TorqDrive technology. We are committed to learning through racing while we strive to provide performance advantages for riders around the world. 2017 brought some solid results, and we’re excited to watch the action this year.”

One of the performance advantages we provide is with our Core Manual TorqDrive clutch. TorqDrive thin friction disks allow more disks to fit in the clutch pack. This delivers more torque to the rear wheel, lowers operating temperatures, and decreases clutch fade. The billet center hub and pressure plate are designed to increase oil flow, extending the life of the clutch and further decreasing operating temperatures.
