Kx60 too fast

02-25-2017, 11:44 AM
Please forgive me if this has been asked 100 times. I've searched on my phone and couldn't find anything.

I've recently purchased a 2001 kx60 for my 11yr old. He is about 70lbs and 4' 3". He is coming from the 71 Honda qa50 and this will be his first kx bike. I'm concerned this bike might be a bit much to start. Is there any way to de-tune them a bit without overheating the engine? I've read about restricting the exhaust with washers but that seems like there will be excessive heat buildup. Any help is appreciated!
