    Default Jetmoto 125 Kids ATV's?

    Thinking about getting the little one a 125cc Utility ATV made by Jetmoto. I've seen these around a few times. I also found a place that has free shipping to the door.

    I looked at some of the name brand ATV and there is limited safety features for a young kid. Not to mention none of them even have a headlight that works.

    Any thoughts or experiences with these?

    How old is the child you intend to put on this?

    Also, with regards to headlights, many manufacturers (ours is a Polaris) now have daytime running lights on their kids machines, to help improve their visibility to others. If you want even more visibility, look into the lighted safety whips (popular with the dune running crowd).

    I'm not familiar with JetMoto. As with any brand without a large local dealer network, do your homework first in determining parts availability.

    For what it's worth, you can get remote shutoff kits online and on eBay for around $70, which can be easily added to pretty much any brand of ATV. Remote kill tethers are great in theory, but not really that practical except for the first day or two, when you are walking/running behind the child as they ride.

    Finally, winter is a great time to teach kids to ride. With snow and ice on the streets and driveways, they can ride their ATV on "the hard pack". Also, the snow berms alongside the road/driveway keep them corraled in.

    He will be 5 soon and I figure by next summer with some pactice through out the winter he should be rather good on it. Most people think he is 7 because of his height, so I measured him and he will fit seat to floor just fine. I like the fact that these ATV's can be governed down to 5 MPH. I've seen some pretty good videos on Youtube.

    As far as parts go I have found several websites that have tons of replacement parts. I just hate the idea of spending $2500+ for a kids ATV. They grow so fast and save the money for a bigger ATV later down the road for the little ones.

    Is it free shipping to AK?

    I got one of the little 50cc atv's that my boys are really too big for, but they still have fun with it.

    The chinese imports are sort of a mixed bag, but so long as you are capable of doing minor repairs they are alot of machine for the $.

    Default Ricardo

    If you can find one, we got a Ricardo (Generic) quad for my 5 year old this year. Its a sport quad looking one with working headlights, a remote kill with alarm as well as throttle limiter. My son loves it and they are simple to work on. Brand new engines can be bought for $250. We looked at the name brand ones and just couldnt justify 2k+ for one. btw its a 110cc

    Default Any quad is a good quad

    My only concern about the mini utility ones is they would appear to be tippier than the mini sport ones. If they came in 4X4 that would overcome this minor objection pretty fast!
    I would like to see someone come out with a true 4X4, slightly smaller than Rancher size frame, 250cc, tuneable for either max speed (preferable) or throttle limited with the remote kill switches.

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.

    Heck yeah!! This would solve 2 problems for me too. 1 would be a wheeler for the kids in a copule years the other is it would be the ideal size to toss in the boat and use to drag a moose a mile or more back to the river!! In the mean time I am still quietly looking for an older wolverine or t-wolf to fill this gap. I have also considered a 2 wheel drive like the little bayou or similar.

    If you look to sell it let me know how much; I'm looking for a small one before next June.
