The Skyhawk 90 really must fly!

Took my son out our on the lake to wheel (ice is 15" thick). What a hoot. Nice to see him blasting around with no fear of running into something. Although he's getting real good at driving it.

but I have the throttle limiter all the way in. In fact, I removed the nut from the screw so it would go in even more. As it stands, and according to the speedo on my quadrunner, he tops out at about 20-21 mph.

Huh?!? I was quite suprised. If I removed the throttle screw, and removed the restrictors (is there 2 or 3?), how fast will the 90 go? Must fly. Is that what they named it after a bird? LOL

Having fun,

A stock Kasea Skyhawk 90 with the throttle limiters off will run 40-42 MPH. This is verified by a Highway State Patrol.

Ther is also a restrictor in the carb. Pull the slide out, remove the 3/4" brass sleeve that sits on top of the slide, then instal the slide into the carb. This will let the throttle open all the way. You may have to go up one size on the main jet.

THe Kaesea Skyhawk is incredibly slow and unreliable. I bought my son a Skyhawk and it broke in a few weeks. A good youth quad is the Predator 90 or Sportrax 90. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img] <font color="red"> </font color>

Re: The Skyhawk 90 really must fly!

Most people in the youth ATV racing world would beg to differ. As for speed, the KASEA is on of only a few that still follows CPSC guidelines limiting the bike to 28mph and 15mph for the 90 and 50's. All these youth ATV's have nearly the same 2 stroke motor.

I'm not a dealer, nor looking to pick a fight, but please explain which model Kasea you bought and exactly what was unreliable about it and broke.

Do you believe in a profile, stranger? 'Cuz my momma always told me to believe half of what you see and nothing that you read.
