My son is ten, and he has been riding this bike for 2 years. This little bike gets jumped, crashed, rolled, revved, rocked, flipped, slammed, and whatever else you can imagine a little boy can do to it. But it never stops running. The other "more expesnive bike" sits in the garage always in need of something else that costs money to repair it.


Upgrades:
take the exhaust restrictor out and throw it away. tune the rev limiter, and modify the airbox by removing it all together, and install a small k&n filter to the carb inlet. I had a buddy do some trick fab to the exhaust and I milled the head slightly to increase compression. Find a jet that works and run something nasty in it. it will do some crazy things until it is tuned right, but it WILL tune, and it WILL scream.
