Re: Thank You For ALL Your Help!
64:1 is WAY too lean. You should run nothing but synthetic two-stroke " PREMIX " oil at 32:1. I like the Bel-Ray H1R, because it doesn't have castor in it. In colder climates, the castor oils will seperate. Out in Cali and down South they use mostly the Maxima 927 oil. The amount of oil it uses mixed with gas is sooo little, its worth buying the best oil out there. I use one of those ratio rite cups to measure it out. I'll go to the gas station with a small gas tank and fill it exactly with 1 or 1-1/2 gallons of premium. Then just use the ratio rite cup to measure out the oil 32:1 at the one gallon or gallon and a half mark.
The stock plug is a NGK BPR7HS. Ditch it for the B7HS, or colder B8HS.
You have the better airbox setup, so I'd leave that on there. I've been trying to get that dang thing forever and just gave up and went to the K&N. But the K&N sucks in sooo much air, thus my huge jetting changes.
My son also has the HJC CL_X4 Fuel helmet. They make it in two youth sizes (s/m and m/L). we have the S/M and it fits my son at 5-1/2, daughter at 8 and even fits my wife (age not to be disclosed otherwise she'd have to kill me [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]) ....LOL
For the neck collar, check out the EVS RC1 race collar. They make it in a youth size and adult size.
The chest protectors out there typically come in two youth sizes .... (micro/toddler or mini/youth). But what I found for the really, really little guys, the best fitting micro is the Zero Gravity micro chest protector. Its a bit hard to find, but fits the really small kids great.
The bicycle elbow pads are what I use.
If you're buying boots, the Thor youth ones are very good, comfortable and reasonably priced compared to some of the others.
You may also look into a kidney belt.
My son has the Scott goggles, but I don't like them very much. Their funky shape doesn't fit into the helmet very good like my bigger Scott goggles on my Cl-X4 Fuel. I removed the strap and put on a quick strap on both helmets. Their much easier to use and look neater. I just ordered a pair of the Thor youth goggles for him to fit into the helmet better.
The SnowHogs are amazing tires. You'll not only find them to offer much more traction and take him places he couldn't go before, but they make the ATV safer. With the rounded stockers, my son would tend to roll it making turns. He'd be on the two wheels on one side and the other side would be off the ground. It would scare the heck out of me and my wife. So just a thought...
The rear wing-bolt that holds on the seat will surely vibrate loose and fall out. Mine did and I lost it, so I just used a longer 2 inch "metric" bolt ( i think it is 5 or 6 mm) and a lock-washer.
Best of luck and enjoy riding.
