Re: Kasea 90 - Adjusting Break Levers
Again, my son is 5.5 years and he rides a Kasea 90. Now my son has been out about 4 times riding. Right now he is just doing small ovals and he was able to weave back and fourth through cones. The throttle is limited to were the quad will go only as fast as I can run, which isn't very fast. He has pickup on using the rear break quickly. He doesn't even use the hand brake. He actually layed down a 5 foot skid mark putting on the back brake. He had all is weight on the foot brake and it stopped quickly. We are taking it very slowly and he is catching on quick.
The only issues right now is the thumb throttle. I noticed he will use the ball of his thumb(closer to the palm of hand or inside base of thumb) to push on the throttle. I think it is just too stiff for his little thumb mussles. I do not want to go through the hassle of disconnecting the oil injection and start mixing gas and oil, but if it has to be done I will do it. I saw a universal extender that looked like it would give him more leverage on the thumb throttle. Does anyone have any experience with those? Can I lube the cables to make them less resistant?
Also, the helmet makes his head itch...so I shaved him bald. Mom got upset but you know...what is more important...good looks or a comfortable coco. I'm just joking... I didn't shave his head, but any suggestions on keeping his head from itching less would be helpful.
