go for a 50

can't you put big bore kits in those? After a while you can "upgrade" the 50.






Or sell it to the 50 crew on MH

take em to the dealer and let them sit on a few, really depends on their size, which can be totally different for boys the same age these days. maybe get one size up they can grow into, as long as its not TOO big.

kickstarts can be really tough for smaller kids, so electric start is something to think about. and remember...4 strokes are fun. 2 strokes are wicked fun.
