She felt the plastic of the quadric and was satisfied: cut in fashion, bright. From light devices - only a headlight (it is switched on by one key). The girl had to look for the ignition switch - he was behind, behind the saddle. Near the slot for checks - just like on a racing ATV or snowmobile.
We equipped our “cap” with a helmet, glasses and gloves - as required by the instructions on the wing. True, it will have to be translated: it is written in English, but be sure to read it. The instruction limits the driver's age - at least 6 years.
When starting the engine, the sequence of actions is as follows: open the gas cock, turn on the enrichment, insert the pin, turn the key in the ignition switch, put the emergency engine stop switch to the “Run” position, press the front brake lever and only then press the electric starter key … Will I remember this sequence child? .. He wants to ride - and not so remember. This is easier than memorizing the multiplication table.
The little tester failed to start the engine right away - the battery is dead, and the backup start-up system is not provided for by a kick. This is a drawback of the machine - a very small battery capacity: a little gape (for example, left the light on) - the battery “died” and sit cuckoo … Okay, while it is charging, let's try to start a motorcycle PY90.
He does not have an ignition switch at all - one key to stop the engine, it is on the steering wheel. This is bad - I say as a parent: it is difficult to tear a child from skating, to exhort - is pointless. If there was a lock, would take the key out of it and drive the child home at the dinner table or for lessons. And so … There are no control or light devices on the motorcycle, not even a sound signal - in this it is similar to real cross-country drivers.
So how do you get the engine? I turn on the manual enrichment, I catch the neutral, following the scheme for switching gears into gearboxes. It’s good that the cheat sheet with the circuit is glued to the motor. The gears in the 4-speed gearbox are switched in Japanese: during acceleration - by pressing the lever only down.
I click on the kick - and I don’t believe my ears: what a sound! Like a combat single cylinder enduro, but quieter. This means that the child will be able to dangle under the windows of not very friendly neighbors, without causing any particular irritation. The engine is a Chinese copy of the “Honda” bestseller from Super Cub, the most massive motorcycle in the world (more than 35 million units have been produced!), It has been brought to absolute perfection and, in principle, is not killed.
But I turned off the engine and gave the child to try to start it: is there enough strength to crank the kick - after all, it’s not “fifty dollars”, but as many as 90 “cubes”. Having jumped on the lever (approximately as adult uncles start 600 or more cube "single-barrels"), Nastya started a motorcycle.
But before handing the motorcycle to the tear of a lively shoot, he studied the apparatus from the point of view of injury risk. It seems nothing to worry about. I know that burns about the exhaust pipe often happen, but here it is covered on all sides by covers. And if you want to get burned, it won’t work.
Centrifugal clutch combined with the fantastic high-torque 4-stroke engine allows you to move in any gear. This is convenient for training: stuck a second - and the child drives without switching. Why immediately - the second? The first is too sharp, it doesn’t take an hour, you’ll roll over from the gas, the third is too fast, the vehicle accelerates to 50 km / h on it. By the way, at the highest, 4th, the cross-country speed at which it was possible to disperse exceeds 65 km / h. To measure, I had to sit behind the wheel myself and use a GPS-navigator, since the speedometer is not designed. I didn’t accelerate faster at the intersection - I felt that under my weight a frame could form. This I inform for the excessively gambling parents, if they decide to show the children their own agility.
