The road is really steep and reltively tight considering the rokcs. A big bike geared like the 650 requires a gear swap-maybe like 10 teeth in the back or maybe a countersprocket reduction of 2!
As for over heating, have you done all the mods to remove the EPA garbage? Have you tried dumping the coolant and using straight water with Redline water wetter? Or at least using like 75% water and 25% antifreeze?
I feel your pain about kick starting. 500 BSA (441 bored out), and 650 Triumph twin, both converted to dirt, neither had a compression release worth a darn.
