Sled: '01 z120/370, '06 panther, '04&'94 yamy
i've got a 5 and a 6 yr old that ride a 120 reclutched and regeared to do about 20ish m.p.h. followed the kids around with a rope tied to the rear for about an hour and they now could ride a z 370 easy...... look for something a bit bigger if you have the room to teach it. they just need to teach thier brain how to process info faster while going faster.(brake instead of gas when panicked). my 5 yr old ass ended my yammy phazer twice cause i told him to follow me the first time we left home on a ride, but rides like a pro in the yard......... it's all good but just get something to teach with.

my daughters age,6and 4 have been riding a 120 for 2 yrs. younger one is all about throttle and has issues but the sled is pretty tough. the 120 always pull a sled and sometimes a three person tobogan with 150-180lbs of kids onit. must have heavier rider to pull more weight.
I would recomend an older jag or puma for 10 yr. old.

my son is 7, about 60lbs and 53" tall. hes just about too tall for it but enjoys it alot. i figure one more season and ill get him something bigger, Puma probably. one issue is, atleast NJ, you have to be 14 to ride in state parks that ALLOW snowmobiles. where i ride with my brother and friends, you have to be 14 and be insured and registered. where my son runs the Z120, its deep tight woods behind my house and county doesnt patrol back there, but too tight for my 550, so definately too tight for a Puma as well...there needs to be a 250cc 3/4 size sled. smaller then the puma but larger then the 120s

Too bad cat does not make an inbetween sled. I don't know what to get him next.
I know this isn't the popular answer...but Yamaha still builds the 250 enticer long track. If you want new , not trashed .

no brings up the yamaha sno scoot.small fun to ride and unfortanatly hold there value like crazy and fun for the old man to buzz around the yard .when I was 10 like 32yrs ago I was riding a 292puma for 3 yrs alredy.I agree with others the yamaha 250 and 300 enticers are great kids sled bit smaller than a z370 and can be had for under a grand.
