Changed tires on the Stelvio today using my new-to-me hitch-mount No-Mar tire changer. So easy! It took longer to take each wheel off than it did to swap each tire.

I've read (but can't confirm) that Interstate uses rebranded Yuasa batteries for their powersports applications (and the part number matches), so that probably is the battery known for causing issues.

You might have some luck by porting the head, too, especially combined with cams. Then the air flows more easily, leading to increased volumetric efficiency.
