My son's new toy!

Recommended Posts

I just got this 80 cc Raptor for my son, I hope he can handle it! (he's 8) He's never had to shift before, any tips on teaching him? We are going out this weekend and he doesn't know this is for him yet! :D There is a picture of it in my gallery, I don't know how to add it to my post.

Very cool,,,,I almost went with the 80 but got the Honda 90 instead.... Start him out in the Flats with the Bike....Get him to up Shift under Acceleration Turn and head back to you....Then tell him by the time he gets back to you he needs to be in first gear...Then take him out on some Small Rolling Hills That he has to Down shift to Ascend....Thats what I did with my oldest....Seemed to work Fine for him but everyone is Different....;)

Thanks everyone for being interested...

I posted the pic of his face when he realized the new quad was for him....It took a few minutes for it to sink in! LOL He did really well, but dad did have to adjust the shift lever up a bit since his foot was too small to reach it! We also limited the throttle down so he wouldn't get too carried away. They built a mini track next to camp, and my 3.5 year old even did a few laps on the 50. My camera acted up, so I have to wait to get more pics off the video camera~ I'll post them when I do!

He got shifting down pretty well! he followed my husband around on the trails, and when my husband shifted up or down he held out the number of fingers for what gear my son should be in to remind him. Next time we have to work on him shifting without looking down, lol ~ I guess he hasn't figured out his foot works without watching it! I'd love to make the Pismo trip, just don't know if we can get off work to go...

That sounds great! He'll have it down in no time. My son went from a quad he had to shift to an automatic. I don't know how that will eventually affect him. He wants a manual clutch quad. I just got my first manual clutch one and haven't even gotten it out on the trail yet.

      I've been looking into buying a house and my rock buggy that I have been building for 5 years had to go... I sold most of the parts so I decided it was time for a new toy..
      I found a 2008 RZR, its got ITP wheels/ ITP Terracross tires, front/rear bumpers and top. I threw some 4 point harnesses in it already and have a set of suspension seats left from my buggy that im going to try to put in it... I just ordered a UMP filter setup to do away with the crappy stock filter box. HID lights, Optima battery and exhaust are in the works for next month... Long travel and a few other thing are in the plans in the near future too...

      I'm selling my 2005 Forest River Work and Play 26DB Toy Hauler. Best I can do is $14,800 which is way less than I owe. My loss, your gain. I will pay off remainder of loan before I take money so title can be sent immediately upon release!

      What are you looking for? A toy or a real ATV?
      Tip one: 50 percents of ATV are sending back to ZheJiang province China for the poor quality.
      Tip two: my company got the third place of amount of export last year with no problem. And we are still growing.
      Need more information? Want to buy some? Want to be my deputy and be rich?
