After one hour on my 2017 fc450, it sucked the gasket and spat out oil. It's a bad design slave cylinder and needs to be used with an o ring 32mm not stock.

Now at 20 hours, I lost the clutch all together and it dumped brake fluid into my oil. Happened in the pits thankfully.

Anyhow, it's a common problem I found after Google lol. A company from the UK has a billet one. With BREXIT, it's good value. Apparently other fc bikes have a different setup.

I had this problem on my 16 KTM 250SXF but after about 100 hours.

I wonder if this slave would work on a KTM?

They have two versions. The husky one has a bleeder. The ktm one they have is single port and the bleeder is part of the banjo bolt

These go for fun, we dont have our 2018 450 FS yet , but we have a better O ring set up already on the way.

my buddy has gone threw three of them at 210 a pop, my 17 kx450 broke a 20 dollar clutch cable, so much for tecnology

My friends did the same thing second ride, I fixed it with a ktm slave cylinder and banjo with bleeder for around $100

I've heard that they don't have replacement parts for this particular slave cylinder to repair it, you can only buy the whole assembly, but Husky has been warrantying them.

Never had this problem.

I recently put 850 miles on the total Rekluse solution RadiusCX Kit ...including the Core EXP 3.0 auto-clutch.
I've been running their racing clutches, aka "TorqDrive", since late 2013 when I started testing them on a factory prepared KTM 450 SXF "FE". I'm not gonna say anything other than these are the best clutches I've run. Ever.

About my recent Core EXP3.0 test in Baja...I am not totally convinced that I need to run the "auto-clutch" (EXP part of it) at this time; HOWEVER, it suuuuuuuuure is NICE in really NASTY-CRAPPY-CHALLENGING ROCKY SECTIONS FROM HELL! So, obviously, I'm one of those guys that's not totally into the "auto" thing...but...I -AM- of the opinion that it IS easier on me "in the long run". It really is.

Any-hoo...the Rekluse came with an entirley different Slave Cylinder that's adjustable and made from Billet.
It's typical Rekluse. What does that mean?
It's EXCELLENT.
It works.
It's made to exacting tolerances and looks beautiful.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

From what I've read, it's a shit show. Husky will warranty, but they are replacing them with the same magura unit that is destined to fail.

If your dealer also carries ktm, they might be able to fit the brembo unit.

All balls has a rebuild kit for the magura also.

It's ironic, because it was just the other day I was praising the magura unit on our Suzuki that's been hammered for 10 years and never been touched.

I think if you fit this to the husky., you might also need to order the brembo banjo bolt with integrated bleed?

Bruce, seems to me that everything we needed was in the box. It was the Rekluse Kit for the Husky FE350S.

Oberon make two versions, this has the separate bleed from the banjo and supposedly bolts right up to the husky

That's good to know for people. It's quite confusing since I think some of the 350 and 250 are running a brembo slave? The parts fiche for 2017 450 doesn't match my bike!
