PostSubject: Youth ATV suggestions.   Mon May 05, 2014 8:31 pm

Jr is fixing to turn 9 and wants a quad. He did want a RZR 170 but has changed his mind (again). I'm not going to buy a chino quad. He killed the last one.......I was always working on it. Not going there again. Any suggestions for a youth sized ATV?? I'd rather have something just a nudge big for him right now so in two years he hasn't out-grown it. He can handle a Grizzly 550 Yamaha (mikes) but that's a little too big and powerful for him right now. Something in the 150 to 200ish range?? I cant find anything.

Polaris has a Phoenix 200, Kawi has a 50 and a 90. Suzuki has a 90 and a Ozark 250, Yamaha, I cant find anything small from them?? Arctic-Cat has a 150 that looks decent.

Kawasaki has a 300 I think it is brute force but that might be a touch big but my buddy at the Polaris Kawasaki dealer said those 300 are super reliable.

Not sure how old he was at the time but I bought a used 300 EX Honda that lasted quite a while. But it is a clutch too. They are bullet proof though!

I'm rebuilding a Polaris predator 90 right now and for it to be a 90cc i'm impressed. It hauls me around and I weigh like 230lbs. even done some doughnuts in the gravel lot.  lol!

I think anything with a clutch would be a little too much for him at his current skill level. We have some pretty nasty up-hills around here. He can drive my 900, but only on the street. It's a little too much in the dirt.
Blu the Pred 90 will haul him but it's just a little too small. I'm going to take him shopping tomorrow.....We'll see.

I set Austin in the ACE two weeks ago at WR...He loved it, and it fit him like a glove. he is 10, and quite small for his age.

The Ozark 250 is a good solid quad for a 9 year old and gives a little room to grow into. A buddy of mine got his son one at around that age and it was perfect for him. That's been been about 4 years ago and the little quad still going strong.

a Honda recon 250 will take him anywhere and it even pulls grown men just fine, and its smaller than the big quads plus they are bullet proof.

The Recon 250 is a little too big. The Honda 90s were a little small. The Yamaha 125 was honestly goofy looking. Can-Am has a 70 and a 90 in the same frame but it was a little smallish too. We settled on a Sportsman 90. Just a little too big but not by much. Nice racks, sealed brakes, all of them had chains , but oh-well.
