He loves this thing and his 120 had a rec motor gx ultimate kit on it so it wasn't a slouch. I have a 370 in the barn for his next move but might get the new Poo in a year or two?
Thanks 50 it is!

I recomend this sled if your kid is to big for a zr120 and to small for a full sized sled this is the perfect and there are a lot of diffrent ways to get power out of it

Do you think its too much sled for a 5 year old?

I dont want to buy a 120 and have to switch to a 200 in a year or two.

I bought one for my kids for this past Christmas. We also have a 120 that is souped up. Was more buying the 200 so I could ride the smaller kids on it, but the 4 year old was able to ride it and hes not a big kid. The speed intimidates him a little but he does quite well. Im about a 175 pounds and it handles me and a kid just fine as well. I would probably go with the 200.

I’ve drilled out my pilot jet to a #55 and it seems to be too big, I had to order a couple new pilot jets from the Yamaha shop, cat dealer said they won’t have stock on them until summer! Anyone ever try to do any gearing or removal of the rev limiter yet?

I'd throw an adjustable main jet on the thing before you do anything with the pilot jet. I can't imagine 55 being too big where it would cause a problem.

Follow you steering shaft down there is a single plug there. Thats your electronic governor.

We ride 0-2000 ft ele. and I went with Yamaha part # 7CU-E4142-42-A0, which is a #42.5 pilot jet from a generator.

Brand new carb and a new pilot (with 1 1/4 turn out on the pilot screw) and the sleds are running better than they have since I owned them.

I just got the envelope full of nomex gaskets and when I get home I will test those to see if I can eliminate the heat transfer issue.

Luck with your sleds!
