    I thought KDX was a line of dirt bikes, it appears you’ve purchased them a four-wheeler.

    I agree. If you can get him on it without the outriggers, I'd take them off. In my opinion, it's harder to learn how to ride with those damn things on there.

    i know i've mentioned our approach with my boys from balance > pedals > moto in the past, don't want to over-preach, but training wheels teach bad habits, and that's it.

    both of mine were twisting throttles by 3 years old ... get that balance down and the rest is cake

    EDIT: if the 50 is too much for him, try to score an Oset electric trials. highly recommended!

    Harley has an electric balance bike now. I've seen them at a couple dealerships I've visited recently.

    Eh, Im fine with the training wheels for now. Him and his sister took it for a spin last night. They are just getting comfortable with it. Im most worried about whiskey throttle.

    it doesn't have an adjustable throttle like the PW50? frustrating on hills but prevents a good 'ol whiskey.

    if it doesn't come with one, you can make one easily by using a tube cut to length placed above the slide in the carb (inside spring). not as easy to dial as they get comfortable but free solution.
