Mate.....youre a legend
I just had a look and yes, I did the same thing, the outer most plate is different and it was in the "leftovers" box!
Ive just changed it over but I wont get to try it out now for a while, but hey, there was a problem and hopefully this has fixed it.
Awesome, thanks for that, much appreciated ...cheers

Let you know how it goes as soon as I can try it out.

Try re-installing the oem steels. that may remove a variable if they are still within spec.
I have the rekluse but run the oem plates and no issues to note so far

Great I just installed a Rekluse in my 950 I hope I don't have any problems with it over the next few days. I'm going to pack the plates just in case. More crap to carry.

FYI
Middle plate is the outside plate.
This is the difference, different looking friction material and wider pads.
Exactly the same thickness though.



Heres a better look with the different numbers visible.

So just went and broke my clutch in per the break in instructions. Clutch started slipping so bad it wouldn't push the weight of the bike up my drive way. There's no free play gain no matter how I adjust the adjuster on the clutch slave. Glad I did this before I got stuck with a loaded down bike in the middle of no were. I was very impressed when I installed it everything went right together and free play gain adjusted very easy. But now it coming back out I don't trust this now.

Bummer, hope you get that sorted out.
Wonder if you will get an answer from Rekluse, I still havent.
Very disappointing really.
They are supposed to be one of the better customer focused manufacturers.
So far NOT

I hope I get a chance to try mine on the weekend, I want to make sure its sorted before the next trip.

A few things to check, and please bear with me, as I do not have the Rekluse in the KTM. The different part number fibrous disc pictured..... Are the tabs on the outside same with as the others. Some clutches have a narrower outside tap, that goes on the inside ( first on the basket)
Are both these issues with the EXP 3.0 Utilizing the 6 thin Rekluse Fibrous discs....???
If the freeplay gain moves shortly after install, then something is wrong....!!!
I know you have already tried to contact them, but this is a matter they need to be aware of, as you will burn your clutch in a short while.
As the EXP 3.0 with their springs is true and tried on the 950/990 I would recommend stop riding, and get a hold of them, as something is obviously wrong.
I will bring this thread to their attention, as this is not normal. It is rare for them NOT to contact yop back. They are an excellent company.

I called tech support this morning. It looks like the free play gain on my bike was set to tight. I readjusted it and instead of 1 full turn to get the correct free play gain I only need 3/4. However in the process of checking adjustments I have lost the Jam nut I guess my bike is trying to tell me something so I guess I'm going to park her and ride a different one today. I'm still not 100% sure this problem won't come back but I'm going to test it out closer to home instead of a long ride.

Same here, I thought that was normal because of the different slave

That's the clutch booster. It has another part behind that's profiled (angled). When the motor spins it created more pressure on the plates through gyroscopic forces. I have replaced mine on the 950 due to one of the 6 lugs sheering off and playing pong with other eng components
There should be a little movement on this part in a back/forward rotational direction. No problems there

I got an email back from Rekluse asking me to strip it down and take pics and measure everything up, which Ive done.
In the process, Ive discovered that the apparent numbers on the discs is the pics above are meaningless as Ive found that I have about the same number of each number and they all look the same bar the one with the wider friction pads.
So forget about the numbers on them, the only difference is visual.

Also, I need to clarify that all the slipping I was getting was high revs not low, like above 5k rpm when opening her up in 4th, 5th and 6th gears.

Ive taken it for a quick spin and no slip now but a cant really try it out at "out of town" speeds in the burbs.
