Kazuma ATV 50CC
50cc engines installed in quads are pretty much ideal in terms of powered offered for young kids - because they can't go fast enough to cause a considerable accident (where your child will always have full control over the vehicle), but they also offer just enough for your kid to get a thrill as well as riding experience of how to properly control a four wheeler. Obviously, higher power generally means more speed and can be unsafe and dangerous (particularly with children who lack experience). Low powered quads - in the 50cc range - are safe due to them being relatively slow in comparison to most quad bikes and often come with more controls and safety features.
What to Know About 50cc Quads
- 50cc quads are quite small in size as compared to the larger quads, which makes sense given they are specifically designed for small kids.
- Obviously it depends on the relative size of your kid and their experience, but generally speaking a 50cc quad bike is perfect for the 4 to 9 years old, any more than that usually then you will want to be looking at a slightly larger model.
- Kids can ride on dirt trails without the need of a license in most areas.
- A semi automatic transmission is best for kids which keeps the operation simple without any worry of shifting gears and 'starting it up'.
- Kids must wear safety gear (helmets, jacket, gloves etc.) while riding quads, regardless of their experience, without which can obviously be quite dangerous.
General ATV Maintenance
As is true for most vehicles a 50cc ATV has to get consistent upkeep and maintenance. The better the care, the better the reliability of your 50cc machine and the more you can enjoy riding. Many people assume maintaining a 50cc ATV is hard and difficult however it really isn't all that difficult, just keep to a check list. The only real hard part is learning to do it right; once you've overcome this challenge, everything will be simple and painless. When regular upkeep is carried out, it gets easier and faster each time.
There are some necessary elements of a 50cc quad which require a careful checkup quite often. As an example, the tire pressure, air filter, oil with oil filter, nuts and bolts etc. need to be checked. These are generally some of the significant elements that could impact the performance of your quad (and prevent it from accidents whilst riding). Although this isn't all there is to check when carrying out upkeep in your 50cc ATV, they are the main points to cover that will generally extend its running life significantly.
Note: When buying your new quad, particular from a dealer, they should give you a maintenance schedule to keep to (if not, ask for one) in order to keep your four wheeler running in tip top condition.
