New 2 stroke yamaha woods bike - July 14, 2015, 05:22 AM

Reworked yz for those not wanting to do all the work themselves to make the standard yz more woods friendly. Enduro21 / Passion for Enduro / YAMAHA UNVEILS ALL-NEW YZ250X TWO-STROKE

No estart, which is too bad. As I get older I'm wanting that more and more. Not enough to buy a euro bike yet...

And here I go with "No Cams". Two strokes are actually easy to kickstart.

Says the guy with an e-start 2 stroke. I took my daughter out for her first real trail ride and had to help her out quite a bit. This meant getting off my bike (often having to lay it down in some awkward spot) and starting it over and over again. I'm still tired. I'm not sure I would care as much about e-start if my legs were longer.

I've had to do that with mine multiple times. Oh yeah, her next bike is getting an e-start. I need to start looking for one soon. She's shooting up in height.

And yes, for Enduros/hare scrambles having an e-start is a good thing.

You've still got it? I just bought my brother's kdx220 or I might have been interested. I do like that bike.

Yeah, the ttr125 my daughter is riding is e-start.

With my kx250 it doesn't take too long before I can't get my foot up high enough to kick through the full ROM. Part of it is jetting and that's something I may never fix as I hate dialing it in (or even working on it enough to get it in the right ball park). I may have to have e-start and FI to buy a new bike.

Pull the trigger on a bike with e-start. You won't look back.

See above regarding the purchase of the kdx (so it'll be awhile before I am bike shopping again, dirt bikes anyway). At least the kdx is lower so kicking is not as big a deal for my stubby legs.
