I just got a Z-start installed on mine and I love it. Excellent bike control in the tight stuff. What they don't tell you is to adjust the idle speed first, then monkey with springs. Of course if I had the extra cash, I would have got the pro.

On a related note, and not saying this is you, I stall/crash/make mistakes/go slower more in races whether it be a motorcycle race or a shooting competition or snowboarding. The pressure of "being judged." Then I breathe and relax and take care of myself, not the others in the race.
And that's when I quit stalling my bike in corners, etc, because I have the flowing lines and loose body english and awareness of engine sound to know if my motor is about to puke.

By the way 2 teeth on the rear will lose you about 25-30mph top speed.
I find it's more like 1.5-2mph per tooth.
I race hare scrambles with mine, tight 1st, second gear stuff.
With the motor stock (except free mods of course) I've run 12/50.
YZ exhaust system I went 13/52.
With my HC piston and YZ cams I now run 13/51.
