How suitable are these things for kids? More power than a go-cart?

Unless you have ALOT of closed area for your kid to ride in, or plan on taking him to track session, this bike could be one of the worst purchases you could make for your child. These are really not meant for kids, and even experience riders take multiple falls on these, which can be up to 35mph! I'd buy your kid an XR/CRF50 or some dirt bike like that, dirt is much safer for your kid....

Lets put it this way. my 4 soon to be 5 year old wont be riding it. He's sat on them before not running though. While its built for his size, these things are supposed to be torque monsters andat 30-40 mph can be quite dangerous.

I hate those things so much I almost want to buy one just to throw it off my roof (3 floors) after I light it on fire. Guys ride around the streets in S.F. with their bike helmets trying to make a place for themselves in traffic and waiting to become roadkill. Drives me nuts. I am just hatin' because I'm 6'3" and can't ride one (already tried)

If you get one of the damn things don't call your local bike delaership wondering if they know of any kawi or yamaha parts that will retrofit onto them. Even if we, by some miracle, did find something that would work...you aren't going to want to pay the OEM costs. So either contact the manufacturer or take your happy self to Home Depot.

God I hate those damn things...
