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:
