It will be alittle easier, but probably not enough with only a fat base gasket or even low comp insert if she cant even kick it over. A 125 is Sooo much easier.

Agree with Lineaway on the frame history, but would also want to know the price. If the rev 3 wasnt a smokin deal, I'd wait for an EVO. If its a great deal, then jump on it unless your a pro rider.
