    I got mine the other day. The pictures dont really show you how robust it is compared to the original. Im sure I can now use my rekluse(I was ready to go back to the std clutch) without worries. Thanks for the help craig.

    How is the progress on baskets?

    I about to replace the cam chains. And while at it i look a little closer and the clutch basket also:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtyadv/4664449478/" title="Old clutch basket? by Dirty Adventurers, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4029/4664449478_b5a675236e_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="Old clutch basket?" /></a>

    It sure shows some wear ...how long before it starts loosing teeths?

    Also see i seem to have the old steel band basket (didn't even notice it when i redid the waterpump ...just thought the -03 had this and mine is a -04)

    Need to sign up for something stronger ...a little problem might be with me beeing located over seas with shipping and stuff.

    I got my new basket 2 weeks ago.
    Very nice piece, and very good quality.

    I installed it whith a new clutch (EBC fiber discs, for a GSX-R 1000 K5), and it's perfect.
    I'm now waiting for the return of CJ to send back my core.

    Yes, but you will need the last disc from KTM , or an other EBC disc, but they don't sell it other than in a kit (the KTM have 11 discs, the GSX-R is 10).

    Got the billet basket and Rekluse package from Craig this past week and got it installed in my 2010 990A today. I have a Rekluse in my 525 EXC in it makes a great bike even better. I have no doubt this combination is going to be killer on the trails.

    I had to call Craig on this one. This EFI timing gear is in the way and you can't get the basket off:

    Turns out you have to rotate the EFI gear so the gap in the teeth line up with the clutch hub gear teeth. Then you have to remove the center roller bearing. I used a magnet to grab hold of the very thin, center roller bearing and then worked the stock basket back and forth until I could get fingers on the bearing. I was able to pull it forward off the shaft. (the needles are captive). Once removed, you have room to wiggle the basket free!

    Be sure and remove the oil pump gear from the stock basket and put it on your new billet beauty:

    Not yet, Unfortunately. We have started a list of interested riders though.

    I hope to have another batch ready this summer. They aren't produced fast or cheap, but we are doing our best to get these available for the riders that need them. We're still working on keeping the price down, that's the biggest challenge at this time.

    We may be offering a discount to the riders on the list interested on a Pre-order as soon as we start production. If anyone is interested, send me an email w/ all your contact info. We'll contact you as soon as we get something rolling.

    Any plans to do an inner clutch basket?

    An 18k mile inner basket ...

    That might have something to do with the notchy shifting Ive been experiencing...

    Unfortunately not at this time, 95% of our off road riders run a Rekluse and we are focusing our efforts on building bullet proof systems for that. Just not enough time to do everything. Maybe down the road, but not this year. Sorry.

    2ND RUN ready to start soon!

    I've had riders waiting over a year for this next run. I'm very sorry for the delay. Now is your chance. I'm hoping to get this started this month, ready to start shipping July/Aug.

    I'm looking for numbers to give me an idea of how many to make. The more I make the cheaper they will be.

    This run I plan to offer a pre-purchase discount if you want to pay the FULL amount (Larger Discount) or 1/2 deposit (less discount). I'm still working on the final numbers. Discount will only be offered for a limited time.

    The reason I am doing this is so that I know how many people are serious. This is an expensive and time consuming part to make to have people back out and screw it up for others.

    I'm doing my best to keep it the same price as last run. I hope to have a final price and Discount options posted soon.

    I pulled my basket out at 20,000 miles. The Rekluse and fibers didn't even touch the ear surface. NO grooves. In the past I had to put a new basket in every 15,000 miles.

    I'll be having this worked on while I'm gone. I'll be gone May 18th-July 18th? Putting another 15-20,000 miles on this basket. I'll report back on the life once I'm home. I expect 50,000 on this basket by the end of the season. NO other basket would I trust in my bike.

    Please add your name here so that I can contact you when the time is ready. This discount will END once I get my final count. If you are serious please send me an EMAIL.

    Thank you and have a safe riding season.

    I have been running the billet basket in my 2010 990A for the last 6 months or so. FWIW, I'm certain there are a bunch of better mechanics than me on this board, but even I was able to install it by myself. (Ok, I had a small bit of phone assistance from Craig, but that was it!) It ain't that tough. I could have waited until my basket was more worn, but I figured I had better jump on this while Craig is making them. You can never tell when they might be available again...
