Why is lighter bike better for kids?

After design & efficiency, the next most important aspect is weight. This applies to all bikes and in kid's bikes we have found most bikes on the market are over-weight! The average adult bike weighs approximately 15kgs with the expected rider to weigh between 60-90 kg. By comparison, the average children's bike weighs 13kgs for a child weighing around 20kgs.

If possible, get a Japanese bike. Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha bikes are all made using better metals and better design. They are more reliable and hold resale value much better.

My 2005 Yamaha v star 1100 classic had after market Cobra pipes on it when I bought it. I took it in to have it tuned up because of a lot of backfire while in operation. They said the carb kit was in...

I do not agree your bike should run better then it sounds like it is. Just throwing on a set of pipes and a carb kit is not always all that needs done. I ask about the air filter because it seems your motor is getting to much gas and not enough air. The thing I would do next is to get a higher flow of air on the intake side by going to a high flow air filter. A quick check to see if this will help is to temporarily remove the air filter and test ride the bike. If it runs better without the filter this tells you a high flow filter will help. Your bike may need more work than this to get it right on. The other thing you could have done is get someone to jet in the carb to cut down the fuel flow and get the fuel air ratio right on.

Aftermarket pipes bored out, bike hesitates on take off?

Its a matter of preference. You could put the stock pipes back on and have the bike work as it was designed to work.
If you leave the free flowing pipes on, then to complete the package you need to give more air/fuel and step up the timing curve.First it needs to take in more fuel to allow for the better respiration. Second you need to let the ignition take advantage of the new found fueling. If you set up the motor correctly with a better breathing intake and exhaust and utilize the ignition to take advantage of it then your motor will give you better response, more power and more efficiency ( better mileage/ MPG). In short it is one of the cheapest and most dependable performance upgrades ( best bang for the buck) you can make... if done correctly.

Rear View Mirrors

For what it´s worth I have noticed what appears to be better rear-veiw from the left hand mirror and have got into the habit of tipping the bike if I´m desperate to see whats going down on the right of the bike. I beleive EMGO have a good selection of aftermarket mirrors and IMHO it would be a simple job to measure the centres of the existing mirrors and see whats available in something with a longer stand. Suzuki are great ones for adopting the universal fit theory... so there is bound to be something out there that will suit your needs If you get stuck, sing out, I´m happy to see what I can dig up...
