On the rare occasion I get a clear straightaway in the woods, the RMZ is a real blast and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Most of the time though I'm stalling on slow trails, falling over after slipping sideways on hidden tree stumps, etc. For a 5'9" guy, the bike is entirely too tall for technical stuff you have to put your foot down for. It's also too prone to stalling, and I am SOOO tired of kicking that thing. Oh, it overheats too if you're not moving much... I thought maybe a lowered 2 stroke, but but before I go that way I wondered if anyone had other suggestions? I like the smooth power delivery of the 4stroke and would prefer to stay there, but haven't been able to find an easy to start or electric start 4 stroke in this power range. Ideas?
