Hello everyone, Poppie here from Oklahoma. I have a Victory Kingpin eightball 1683cc 100hp badass sled and everytime my grandson sees a bike he thinks its Poppie. well hes grown to love bikes more than trains..I get that..good idea cause chicks like bikes...hahaha..anyway....I just purchased an PR200 for my grandson its seems to be in decent shape. I am going to fix this up for my grandson and when he seems to be ready for it which i dont think he is now I will turn him loose.... Batterys are dead so I do need new batterys..I need a source for FRESH batterys that I can rely on being FRESH so any help pointing me in the right direction would be nice..I just want stock 12v 7ah for now that will be plenty for him as he is only 3 right now..Not sure when he will be ready for it but when that day comes he will have complete gear for it..Then some day we will mode as he gets older and better skilled..It is a 2007 it has no led lights or a reset next to the on/off switch..

Please any and all info from you guys who have been in this for awhile would be very welcome...Is there anything I should change to avoid future problems because of bad design? I just replaced 1 of the rear wheel bearings that was bad but seems the rest is good. I am really impressed how well built this little bike is..sorry to be so long winded. Thanks ahead for your help and advise..

Poppie..

Hardware Freight has good batterys for ya. these electric pocket bikes arent all that fast, but you still should get him a good helmet, some knee and elbow pads, and a 1 piece mechanic work suit from walmart, so the only thing that gets scuffed up incase of a fall is the bike, not your grandson :). Since these bikes dont run very fast you can get him riding as soon as he has protective equipement and the bike is ready... then maybe when he is a little older and use to riding you can get him a nice gas powered pocket bike, which will provide him with a little more pleasure, and provide you with a new toy to tinker on, LOL.

Anyways, Good Luck with the project, and keep tinkering!

hey my nephew got a pocket bike and it starts up and runs really good but it will only run for 2 min then shut off and wont start back up for a couple of hours. its not like it chokes out or anything like that it seems like it just shuts down for some reason
