I'm not too concerned with a rattle..I don't have that issue. Vibration..yea of course, it's a 250 it's gonna happen. Stalling on start up, not a big problem, I just hit the button again, but..it's gotta be more than coincidence it's happening once the bikes hit over 500 miles or so. But the one issue I have over anything is..the stalling while riding. That is a very scary thing to experience. Especially when you have traffic bearing down on you. And that issue also seems to come with more miles being put onto the bikes. It seems whatever is causing it, is either a bad/faulty part/s that are wearing out or burning out too quick. I talked to an engineer where I work who designs bcm modules for cars; he said "yes sure, if the parts are faulty they aren't going to last and will start failing. Even electronics will fail or break down just as quick as mechanical moving parts will". So I don't know. I just hope someone doesn't get hurt from a stall out.
It's not about how much power you have, it's about how much you can actually use.
