Shouldn't be a problem.  Lily ran a basal of ZERO for 4-5 hours a day 
during the first 6 months or so of her 'honeymoon'  she used a 42" bent 
needle at the time with a 506 and never had a problem.  Oh, by the way, 
the rest of her basal was 0.1 to 0.3 so the only good flow she ever had 
was for meal boluses.
