I own a wr myself, and have it modded almost fully to YZ specs. But my question is while watching supercross (go Chad and Jason) I see when the guys stall the bikes they are very hard to restart. Is this common? I don't find mine hard to start when it's hot when I use the hotstart lever, it fires right back up right away. I thought you guys may know the answers here. Thanks in advance..............

1- Higher compression than our bikes.
2- Bikes are always easier to start in the garage or at your local riding area compared to when you're racing & rushing things too much.
3- I've seen more than one mechanic start their riders bike for them before the race. I think the riders should start their own bikes more often.
