I have just installed my Z-Start and I like it alot :) I just wanted to know how long it takes to break in and if the temp will make it creep also?? It still creeps just a little and it has been cold here, just wanted to know how everybody else's breakin went??? Still keep on reaching for that clutch :D I almost got the decompressor once will have to break myself of this :D Other than that it feels very smooth and I think I will be much better in the woods :D

Did you put this on a WR450?? Have you considered a handlebar mounted rear brake?? Let's hear the details.

Icerider, did you get the gen-2 or the gen-3 z-start? Gen two has [36] 5/16 diameter balls, gen-3 has [30] 3/8 diameter balls. I went from the gen-2 to the gen-3 and lost all my creep when I did. If you have a gen-3 and still have creep, you will need to adjust your stall speed a little. Another way to cheat the creep is to create a little bigger installed gap. I can help you more when you tell me which version you have.
