Default Compression Release

I was out surfing the net last night and found these EZ Releases from Wimmer Cycles. Has anyone used them? It looks like the easiest compression release without getting into the head. Their sales rep sent me an email that you only need to install one on your rear cylinder.

I just brought mine in to get compression releases installed. After 12000 miles the little starter is giving out against the 107.

Should have done right away but for whatever reason it wasn't done.

If your going with new heads why not go with OEM ACRs and pick up the harness to connect them? Assuming that's possible...

If your heads have never been off, you likely don't need CR's. if you mod your motor, have real releases installed then. They're cheaper, and no need for gimmicky "modified" spark plugs required.
