guess chines atv's aren't the greatest to be asking questions about.
The only bad thing I was told by a guy that has worked on them for reselling them is , you better be a good mechanic and you have to order new parts online . I'd rather have a dealership take care of the hard stuff like engine & transmission adjustments . But , that's just my opinion . Best of luck and a tip of my hat to keeping kids outdoors and away from the video games .

4X4 Dad, I bought it at a Brick and Mortar store. Only thing, it is 3 hours away. there is one in Valencia, but the guy flat out told me he will not service it if I buy somewhere else. Don't believe this is legal, have to find out. Thanks for the tip of the hat. This Chinese one is to see if she wants to stick with it. Will move up later.

I understand . That's' exactly what I was going to do for my daughter . But my buddy talked me out of it . Glad I didn't , but for a better reason . I was going to sell my Teryx and get us both a couple used quads . She was all for it until she found out I was selling REXY ( Teryx ) to get the money . LOL

I still might some day , but for now the Teryx is a much more useful utility machine for lots of things .

It's likely quite legal for him to refuse to service your ATV (as long as he's not discriminating based upon race, religion, gender and etc). I'm not sure why someone would turn away business for a reason like that, but it is his choice. You may be able to complain to the manufacturer, or his distributer. They make take issue with him being a dealer, but refusing to service machines sold by other dealers.

Picked up the new Dirt Wheels Magazine and saw the Polaris RZR 170. Didn't know they made one for kids. Looks pretty nice. Anyone want to buy a used Chinese Quad? LOL!!!

I had two Chinese ATV's for my kids when there were small.They were more practical than battery powered ones and did fine around the yard.As soon as they started running them a little hard,we started having issues and it was time to move them up to something more practical.

Dealers are individual businesses and can refuse to service any machine bought somewhere else.

I've owned a pile of ATV's over the years and my kids ride them hard.My son put 1500 miles on one in a year when he turned 8.There's some good ones out there but for a kid around 9 that has some experience and ability,a Honda 250x is tough to beat for the money.

It's crazy to think that when I was young a 250 was a full size quad. My older brother (late teens) raced a worked 250X in hare scrambles, and he was 6' 2" and 275lbs. Oh how times have changed.

I know what you mean but they were 2 strokes in the old days.I had a Suzuki quad racer back in the late 80's and it screamed compared to my son's 250x.The 250x is quick enough for a kid to have fun on but they aren't even close to being dangerously fast.I bought him a CRF 125 last year for his 10th birthday and he's already starting to bored with it.I almost bought him a 2 stroke KTM85 over the weekend but I'll give him one more year on the 125.

I was going to go with the pink version of the Polaris 90 for my daughter . It had the front & rear lights that most small quads do not . But as stated before , she didn't want me to trade our SXS .
