I was wondering the same thing when they mentioned it in the video. You would think it would almost have to be a necessity for technical riding. Another question I had is what do you do when you want to go to a bigger tire? You can't work the clutches over like a traditional SxS. I guess different gearing in the tranny or diffs if that is even possible.

The way the Rekluse works on the dirt bikes is that you do not have to pull the clutch lever to shift and it is basically impossible to stall a good running bike on take off or slowing down.

There are a ton of off road and enduro type riders that use the Rekluse clutch in the dirt bike industry.

Clutch upgrade option is nice...
If fit and finish, ride comfort are good and the frame can take a beating, this is gonna make deciding tougher...just want to sit in one and I don't want to change belts or worry about changing belts anymore:(...
Fact it is made in the U.S. is also a major, major bonus...
Can you imagine what a Turbo would do to this...

I have the Rekluse on my dirt bikes and love it. If I do end up getting one of these, Rekluse would go on day 1. Clutching is a PITA on these tight east coast trails

If thus is true and goes on the yxz. I'm sold 1000%!!!! I have skis for feet as everyone says so it looks really cramped in there with 3 pedals. Those that have experience with these do you still have to use the clutch stopping and taking off? Also how reliable are they?

I've used rekluse clutches on my race quads and they are very nice. They are a fully automatic clutch meaning you can put the thing in gear without using the clutch at all and it will not take off on you, or you can stop the machine while in gear without pushing in the clutch or even shift without using the clutch. when you want to go you hit the gas and as the rpm rise the clutch engages itself. if you wanna stop just hit the brake and stop and the clutch will disengage automatically. I also found them to be extremely durable even under extreme racing conditions that I put them through (my clutch plates were actually lasting longer than with a standard clutch. Another great thing about the rekluse is you can still use the clutch like you always have if you want to. I let my buddy ride my quad for about a half hour and he didn't even know it had a rekluse clutch in it until i showed him. Finally they are fully adjustable meaning you can adjust: 1 - what rpm they start engaging, 2 - how fast or slow they engage, 3- how hard they clamp or slip.

For rock crawling it would be awesome because you cannot stall the machine with a rekluse in it. It would be very similar to crawling a xp1000 (or any cvt sxs) with high and low only instead of high and low speed you have 5 speeds and the ability to shift on the fly whereas with polaris or can am you have to stop to shift between high and low speeds.

i'm super excited about the 5 speed transmission and so glad I will no longer need to replace belts in the middle of my riding trips. Now I just gotta sell the xp!!!

It really does... it actually makes it better to me because you have 5 gears to chose from (instead of 2 speeds) and you can switch speeds (gears) on the fly. You also don't have the power loss of the cvt. The only bad side is you need to be in the proper gear if you want to be in the peak power output of the motor where as the CVT's keep you at the peak RPM Power most the time.

with the rekluse clutch and turbo, what is not to like? Is a no-brainer for me.
I would not be surprised if the cvt loses 20HP.

Yep the Rekluse is the bee's knees. Should make this thing a blast for woods riding and racing. Probably not as necessary for dune and desert guys.
