I was contemplating what to get my 9 year old to ride. He isn't big enough to control a 250 but to big for a 90. I ended up getting him a 125 Xtreme. Guy a few miles down the road bought it new 2 years ago and it is on the 3rd tank of gas. Handles a lot better than the 125M I had at his age. Here is a video of his first time riding it and a couple pics, I am limiting him to 2nd gear at the moment. Seems to have good suspension and it runs really good for a stock 125 4-stroke. It looks pretty sick for a stock mini.

Looks like he's already a pro, he knows how to transfer his weight during turns and straight aways

He learned on 3 wheels, where you either move your butt or get dumped. I have always made him wear a helmet, trying to make it a habit at a young age. He wants to ride it constantly, the hard part is trying to keep the other kids in the house. The air filter system is not very good and it seems a little lean to me. Going to jet up and get a K&N with an outerwear or a UNI to clamp direct to the carb. Haven't looked at what options are out there yet.
