simply a bike that is used to cruise the pits at the race track. . .nothing special required for that, but you don't want to look like a monkey fukcing a football. This is my opinion (and based on this thread, 50 opinions vary greatly) but I would start her out on it PRIOR to thinking about a 88 kit. If you want a little more power but still want smooth delivery, get a "takeoff" crf70 top end and bolt it up. My current 50 has stock pipe and engine, I can ride it through the hood at 3 am and no one is the wiser. With increased noise comes increased complaints. Some 50's sound absolutely obnoxious IMO.

1 ) Big bars
2 ) Front springs
3 ) Rear Spring
4 ) Tall Seat
5 ) Big Shifter
6 ) Heavy duty tubes
Thats all you need
the 88 cc kit is unneccesary and your daughther would have a challenge riding it that way.

Look at you sounding all logical and shyt. Im gonna do this order. Do I really need HD tubes?

If you plan to ride the bike hard, probably not. But i burn through tubes like toilet paper.

I have a set of HD tubes on order right now.
