2003 XTreme Tantrum 50 - VERY hard to start

I bought my 6 y/o daughter this quad in March and have noticed that every time we try to start it, it takes at least 15-20 mins of kicking (after about 4-5 times trying the elec, the battery goes dead). It's extrememly frustrating, and makes us afraid to take it anywhere but the back yard. Is there some trick to starting this bike, or some fix to make it better? Other than that, it's a great bike!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely, there is some trash in the carb or in the tank, restricting fuel flow. Make sure that the vaccuum line that goes from the carb to the fuel pump has no cracks. In reality, take it back to the dealer. With it being only 2 months old, it is covered under warranty. Let the dealer fix it.
