jumpy in very low gear

Hey,

I am wondering if it is normal for the ZX2 transmission to be a little jumpy in the very lowest gears - when starting out very slowly and occasionally when coming to stop. I just had a used tran. put in after having a lot of trouble with a rebuilt tran. I would appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks

Sounds like clutch "chatter" to me. What, if anything, was done to the clutch? Was the clutch clean and grease free? Were the splines on the transmission input shaft clean and lightly lubed with some molykote? If the clutch was replaced, was the flywheel resurfaced?
