New to the TRX's always rode MX dirt bikes. Got back from teaching girlfriend how to ride in dunes this weekend and she destroyed/burnt up the clutch on the second day! Anyway I'll be replacing most everything while in there, and everyone seems to like the CRF(oem) clutch kit.Or would a OEM TRX clutch be best?
Which year though, if that matters? And the judder spring? anything special or worth keeping?

Also I will probably replace the basket with a forged Rekluse/wiseco? Any opinions? I will also be buying DS springs which seem pretty popular.

Thanks, all feedback appreciated!

I have stock 07 450 with HRC kit so power levels are nothing crazy either.

i know the crf oem is the way to go on the 04-05's not 100% positive that it will work on the 07's?

Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terribly destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resists. -Milgram

R.I.P. Jesse aka Jay Dash you were a great friend for sure! and always will be

I use 06 crf clutchs on all my trx's and they work great. My $12 tusk clutch holds up well

are you using a tusk clutch kit on the RE500 motor of yours?

Both of them. I have them in my worcs bike's as well as my mx bikes. I use hinson inner hubs and pressure plates on my bikes as well as the basket, maybe that makes a difference

i have a lock out on mine and it simply demolished it. although my other friend has one in his 07 stock bore and has lasted a very long time! i don't even know what to do to hold the clutch together on mine! i am gonna be trying even heavier duty springs than those that are on there right now. (trx250r HD springs)

Ya i am sure your motors make more tq than mine being a 500. I am sure the tq kills the clutchs. I go through them about every 10 or so hours of ride time and then its time for new a new one but they only cost me like 12 bucks so i dont care
