Hello. I have one in my LTR-450 race quad. I race a full schedule in District 23 (Minnesota) +35 class. I won my class this year!!! I've been running it for two years now without even touching it. I haven't even done the recommended adjustments that they say are so important. I just works like heaven!!! I got it because I would get so tired towards the last laps of a race that I would usually end up stahling my quad and losing first place. I have not stahled my quad since putting this in. It is unbelievable. You just go flying in to the corners, jam on the brake, down shift and take off. No worrying about pulling in the clutch or killing it. And it's awesome on holeshots!! Everybody else has their quad pegged and dump the clutch, spinning the tires, I just sit there slightly above idle, when the gate starts to move I just nail it. The tires don't spin and I usually go into every first corner in first place. The owner of the place's name is Patrick, they are a great group of guys and their product is awesome. I'm upgrading this year to the Z-start Pro. Not for any reason other than I should probably do some maintenance on this one so might as well upgrade!!! Good luck.

My husband and I both race motocross - I bought him the Z-Start Pro series Rekluse last year for Christmas. Ordered it before it was even available for the YFZ450. He loved it.

I'd definitely go with the Z-Start Pro series if you are going to get one, and not want to do as much maintenance on it. I have heard horror stories on the regular Z-Start when maintenance wasn't done. But, also have heard stories like the previous poster too :-)

My husband just put the Z-Start Pro on his 450r...........he's loving it so far! And, if you're pretty mechanically inclined, you can put it in yourself...he did!!

      Hi,
      I'm new to this forum and I hope you can help me out. My '99 Polaris 250 Trail boss does this: shifting in to forward the gears grind a bit. Once in gear the rig wants to immediately move forward. If I don't get to the throttle fast enough, she stalls.If I do, off we go. It happens everytime I shift into gear.Could this be caused by dirt inside the clutch sheaves causing the belt to engage early (before any throttle input)? Or what??? Thanks in advance.

      Hi all, I have an 86 motor 4 that has starter clutch issues. (YFM225)
      Because I cant afford to put much money into this old machine, I hope to get some guidance before spending more. (already spent too much!)
      I have replaced the starter clutch multiple times with used ones that are supposedly good. Each time it fixes the problem for a short time, and then it returns. Sometimes I have noticed the socket head cap screws have loosened. I clean and re-assemble using removable locktite and that seems to help, but still issues with the clutch itself.
      Any suggestions?
      Questions, is it maybe the small springs behind the rollers are weak?
      Regarding the surface on the flywheel that the rollers touch. I have noticed that most of the flywheels I have used do have small wear marks on them. I have smoothed them out using a small stone to the point you can barely feel them. Does this surface need to be perfect?
      Are clutches and flywheels matched. It seems that depending on which flywheel I use, the timing can vary slightly like its not quite firing at the right time, hard to start, etc. My theory is that there must be slight variances in the keyway location between flywheels. Is my theory correct?
      Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
