He's a indoor kid. We only go riding in the woods when HE asks. Yes we have had 4 wheelers but he wants to ride 2 like me. We just putter through the woods. He took the MSF dirt bike corse on a XR80 and he really would fit on one now but the whole clutch thing confuses the out of him and I'd rather him "enjoy" riding than get frustrated with it. The more he does it the more I would hope he enjoys it.

Most of the times he'd rather do algrebra... not facetious, he really likes math.... he's 10 and can do way harder math than I can....

He has a PW80 now. He took MSF on a XR80. Towards the end of the class he was really hating the clutch. I'm just looking to see if there is something physicaly bigger then a PW80 or is he gonna have to become freinds with
a clutch...

Probably a bit of both. They make a easy pull lever for a XR80? If so that might be the ticket. Never thought about that...

Either that, or you can get whatever bike fits him well and install a Rekluse auto clutch.
