All i can tell you is i had the starter grind, crunch or whatever you want to call it. I 1st rebuilt the starter and it still made the crunch. I then replaced the stock comp with the se comp and all has been great since. Not only did the starter crunch thing disappear, it shifted better, and finding neutral was easier and this my just be me but the bike felt more responsive and just felt better. Im sure the MoCo started putting in compression releases on the motors for a reason but mine is a bone stock 2009 96"er. I replaced the comp at around 19k miles and with 27k miles currently with the factory original battery and shes been without issue. I would highly recommend replacing the stock comp on the bikes with the previous comp design.
