Rekluse Radius CX 4.0: Love It or Hate It?

Arguably the most controversial upgrade in the offroad motorcycle world…

… yet some say it’s the best thing to hit the trails since a 300 two stroke.

The world of motorsports thrives on advancements, but some, like the Rekluse Auto Clutch, truly enhance your ride. While not every flashy upgrade we do is necessary, the Rekluse offers a compelling option for riders seeking a smoother, more enjoyable experience.

The Rekluse Auto Clutch has been around for a while, and their newest Radius CX 4.0 is shaping up to be a winner. Let’s shift into some of its pros and cons to help you decide if it’s the right fit for you.


“So like you don’t need to shift?” A very common misconception about the way this clutch mod works. No it’s not an auto transmission, it’s an auto clutch conversion that allows you to shift without the manual use of your clutch lever, keeping you in control of your gears and still allows you to completely use your clutch as normal. So don’t worry you’re not compromising your machismo.

Pros of the Rekluse Auto Clutch:

  • Relief for Your Left Hand: Especially in challenging terrain like rocky sections, the Rekluse takes the strain off your clutch hand, allowing you to focus on navigating obstacles.
  • Tames Techy Climbs: Say goodbye to excessive rear wheel spin on technical hill climbs. The Rekluse helps maintain traction and momentum, keeping you moving forward.
  • Stalling Savior: No more worries about stalling in tricky situations like hard braking or lugging the engine. The Rekluse keeps the bike engaged, preventing those frustrating stalls.
  • Normal Clutch Override: The Rekluse doesn’t take away your control. You can still use the clutch lever for normal operation whenever you want. However, Rekluse recommends letting the automatic system engage and disengage for optimal performance.

Cons to Consider:

  • Mind the Rollback: One drawback is that the bike can roll forward or backward when in gear. This requires extra awareness on hills, and using the rear brake to maintain control. While left-hand rear brakes are an option, they can take some getting used to.
  • Slight Lag on Lift: Although the new Radius CX 4.0 offers a quicker response, there can still be a slight lag when lifting the front wheel. This can be overcome with a slight adjustment in technique.

So Should You Get One?

There will always be those who scoff at automatic clutches, but don’t knock it till you try it! After all, we all modify our bikes to enhance the ride, and the Rekluse offers genuine benefits for many riders. Consider giving the Radius CX 4.0 a shot – you might be surprised how much it improves your experience on the trails.

See ya on the trails!
