Wow! Thanks for the warning, I thought that Rekluse would suggest another washer. The Rekluse steels were specifically machined to be used with the Rekluse Honda fibers. According to Rekluse, these steels are all the same size and they don't have .40 steel to go in the clutchpack first.

I am going to call Rekluse tomorrow. Also, I think that I'm going to pull out the clutch pack and remeasure all the plates. I will post undates. Btw, one thing that I have already noticed is my clutch pull is heavier than stock, I suppose the Rekluse clutch springs are stiffer than the stock springs.

I have been busy and unable to call Rekluse, they were closed on Friday.I am a newbie on the Rekluse but this is what I think so far. I think they will suggest installing a spacer. Here is the summary of whats going on with the Rekluse basket and auto clutch install with Honda fiber plates.

The Rekluse basket is an easy install just measure the hole in the basket first, its either 40mm or 46mm. I bought a special set of Rekluse steels that are supposed to be used with Honda Fiber plates. I installed the 8 steels which were seven 1.22mm discs and one 2.25mm disc with 7 Rekluse Honda Fibers which measured at 2.98mm each. This clutch pack was too tall, and clutch wouldn't disengage.

The only way that I could get the clutch pack height required was to install 8 Rekluse steels as above.(Note the special rekluse steels are 1.22mm except for the one 2.25mm oversize disc.) Then I installed 5 Rekluse Honda fibers which measured 2.98mm each and 2 OEM GasGas fibers which measured 2.75mm. I think the total stack height was about 31.17mm,excluding the EXP disc. The 3mm of free gain was easy to set. The auto clutch works fine and as I took a few spins around the yard it felt very cool. I am going to call Rekluse b/c the objective of this install was to use a Honda fiber set. Any comments suggestions so far? It is very nice to ride.

After I finish up the clutch, I think I'm going to buy a Rekluse LHRB.

I just checked with Rekluse and the 2.25mm Steel Plate that they sent me was an error. They are now sending me a new steel plate that should allow me to use all Honda Fiber Plates. I will post updates.

Default Honda Fiber Clutch Pack

I just installed the steel plate to replace the incorrect 2.25mm that Rekluse sent me. Everything went in ok and I will check the free gain tomorrow. Ok, the new plate is 1.55mm. So, if you want to run a Honda clutch fiber clutch pack with a Core EXP Auto Clutch, it is seven steels at 1.22mm plus one steel at 1.55mm with seven Honda Fibers.

Btw, my clutch pull isn't any stiffer than stock.

Update: This setup works perfect. I haven't had any problems at all.
