I really don't know what the difference is between the EXP, CoreEXP and the Z-Start, but I have the CoreEXP on my 570 and love it... (and I couldn't beat the price either).

I also have their (Rekluse's) adjustable clutch slave cylinder which makes setting the free gap a doddle and gives the ability to make on-the-trail adjustments.

Not sure if I will put it on.

I have the core exp(?) on my 390. I have not gotten a lot of trail time on the bike yet, but I really apreciate that clutch.

I liked it on my 950 SE. But didn't like the lack of engine braking. I'm thinking on the smaller bike it will be ok. I guess I should go ride some single track and see if it or I "need" it.

You only lose engine braking on an autoclutch when you fall below engagement RPM, near idle. I use engine braking all the time on my 390 Core EXP, on steep hills etc. I like the Core EXP/EXP much better than the several zStart Pro's I've had. The EXP has crisp quick engagement and maintains stock clutch feel and operation, the zStart has slower engagement and has a weird soft lever zone. I really enjoy the Core EXP on my 390, especially in the gnarly rough stuff and big hillclimbs.

The EXP is easier to service and adjust than the zStart as well. I have the external slave adjuster too, very handy.

Many prefer the softer manners of the zStart Pro over the more direct EXP. Both are good.

I guess I never got the engine braking down with the z-start. I'll probably give it a try. Good to hear the positive feedback on the Core exp.


I have looked at the charts for rekluse and the different settings on how it engages and how quickly. So I'll likely have to fool with it a bit.


Thanks for the input.

I have the CoreEXP in my 570 and had a problem with my slave cyl on the second ride. The slave stuck in and started leaking. In all fairness, this is my first experience with a Rekluse, and I may have had it misadjusted, I donno, I have never ridden one before.
Has anyone had a problem with their slave cylinder after adding the Rekluse? I notice that most are using the Rekluse slave as well, is it only for adjustment purposes?

For me, yes.

I mounted the CoreEXP on my 570 and never had a single problem.

My thoughts is that your slave cylinder was gonna go with or without the Rekluse. There's no need to even touch the slave when installing the CoreEXP.

I haven't needed to adjust my Rekluse much, but it's so much nicer now just having to whip out a 4mm hex wrench and be able to fine tune things whenever I feel like it.

I figured it was just a coincidence, but then I started thinking that the Rekluse is constantly modulating the clutch at low RPM's and wondered if it hastened the failure of the slave I am not passing any blame, this is the first problem I have had with the bike (besides the battery), and I have beat the living crap out of it. I love this bike I have 37 hrs on it and just over 200 miles if that says anything about the way it is used

Any Husaberg dealer, nobody makes aftermarket plastic.

I used to run a Z start pro rekluse on my WR450 to bandaid the tall gearing... I wouldn't use a auto clutch again, the bergs simply dont need them, unless you race motocross. On mountain trails the rekluse becomes a safety issue as there is zero engine braking at idle or when the motor is off... so when you are on the edge of a cliff going to make a turn up a tight switchback, there is nothing holding you if you cant get your foot on the brake (almost lost a bike from this). If you don't ride technical singletrack it probably won't be an issue for you, but I still don't see the need with the super wide tranny that these bikes have.
