Default Am I tall enough to ride a Dirt Bike (Kawasaki KX250)?

OK. I'm 5'9"15 years old and 115 Pounds. I have made up my mind that i want a 250 2 stroke dirt bike. I have a 150 and it's time to move up. I just want to know if i'm tall enough to ride. i know it will be hard to start if i'm a little to short which is why i'm a little concerned. Which brings me to my next question, are there any parts that can make a dirt bike easier to start. Thanx

Your height should not be a problem.Ricky Carmichael did OK despite standing only 5'6".As to the second part of your question, I know some off road bikes are equipped with electric start. Machines setup strictly for Motocross are kick start only.Good physical conditioning will go a long way toward ease of starting your bike and enjoying the ride.Good LuckPS you are lucky to be getting into dirt riding these days. Machines are so good. See second URL. This is the 1974 machine I started racing with many, many years ago. ------
